A small Pennsylvania masjid is the venue for this critical lecture about repairing relationships between believers. The Qur’an and Sunnah provide practical guidelines for unity and this talk inspires the audience to implement them in their lives. Imam Siraj emphasizes the Islamic virtues of wisdom and patience and his energy and passion serve to soften the hearts of the believers and usher them forth on the path to ultimately respecting and loving one another for Allah’s sake alone. By providing simple solutions for conflict resolution at the individual level, this talk also lays out the blueprint for the more ambitious task of unifying the ummah as a whole. Great for anyone seeking to increase their humility, patience and forgiveness for others, especially husbands and wives or family members at odds with one another. (Duration: 52 min) Siraj Wahhaj, imam of Masjid at-Taqwa, is well known among Muslims in North America as a dynamic, motivational speaker and tireless supporter of Islamic causes. He accepted Islam in 1969 and received training at Ummul Qura University in Makkah. He is the former vice president of ISNA and has served on the Majlis Ash-Shura since 1987. He received high praises from the media and NYPD for initiating anti-drug patrols in Brooklyn in 1988.
