In this short and powerful reminder Mufti Ismail Menk talks about examinations in life and encourages never to give up or lose hope. Life is not easy but there is always hope.
The concept of Al-Mahdi is one of the most controversial and greatly misunderstood topics in Islam, and different sects have proposed radically variant belief about him. Most Muslims know little, if anything, about this enigmatic figure. Yasir Qadhi sheds light on the Prophetic descriptions of Al-Mahdi. Basing his talk entirely upon authentic Hadiths and the explanations of reputable scholars in Islam, he explains in great detail the signs of Al-Mahdi, the trials and tribulations that shall accompany him, and the intense events that shall take place in his reign, including the descent of Isa (Jesus). Additionally, he describes some of the claimants who, throughout Islamic history, falsely professed to be the promised Mahdi.
