Shaykh Faraz calls believers to embody and spread the prophetic light in times of darkness, as opposed to talking and dwelling on the darkness. He explains that there is a lot of good and blessings to reflect on, recognize and be thankful for. Of the rights of blessings upon us, is to rejoice in the blessings, and to also renew the sense of prophetic concern. He highlights that securing blessings is through having true gratitude for these blessings.
Shaykh Faraz also reminds us of the example of Prophet’s companions (peace and blessings be upon him and them), and how they were content in the times of hardship. They were not shaken, rather they strived in the ways of good.
