“I chose this story because it really struck a chord in my heart and is a story which so many of us can relate to. There are times in our lives when we feel so alone, so at loss, so helpless… This story teaches us that we are never alone! Allahu Musta’an… Allah is the Best of Helpers and through displaying a beautiful patience, tuning to Him in our time of need and putting all our trust in Him, He will surely come to our aid”
In the 5th podcast of Audible Reflections Umm Saliha reflects upon a surprising moment in the seerah. This podcast will make you think critically about your own character and your interactions with others. You will learn how the Prophet, the best of all examples, dealt with people’s wrongdoing and advised them.
“Imagine this, you’re sitting in the masjid and an A’arabi, a Bedouin, enters the masjid, goes to a corner, removes his trousers and urinates… You can imagine how angry the Sahabah become, but what does the Prophet do?”
In this special episode of Audible Reflections, Zahra, Mahmoudat and Umm Saliha are in the studio discussing their Ramadan so far, what they’ve enjoyed, how they are preparing for Laylatul-Qadr and how they plan to incorporate the good habits developed during the Holy month into their lives all year round.

“This is a story that perfectly captures the impact that our sins can have on the Ummah as well as the importance of repenting and turning back to Allah. It’s important that for us as Muslims never to lose hope in the mercy of Allah.”
