A deeply personal account of my own struggle losing my mother to cancer. These brief words were offered as support to family members and friends of patients who had lost their lives due to illness and other causes. They were provided as part of a memorial service that took place at St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton on May 9, 2013. I share these words here for those who might find benefit in them.
Special thanks to the UMass MSA for the video and the invitation to speak.
While visiting Sacramento for Ramadan, I was asked to participate in our imam’s series of lectures on the “Journey to the Hereafter.” The series delves into the journey of the soul from this world into the next, and looks at each step of the soul’s migration until it reaches its final destination. I was so happy to be able to speak about the period of the journey when those blessed will meet the Prophet ﷺ at the Basin (Hawd).
The talk also includes some of the Prophet’s ﷺ blessed descriptions and characteristics.
This was recorded and is posted here for those who wish to listen.
