Although many Muslims throughout the world are in tribulation, there seems to be a simultaneous revival taking place within the ummah today. Abdullah Hakim Quick addresses this by first reviewing some of the great Islamic revival movements of the past. He then discusses ways in which today’s ummah can have similar success despite the calamities facing it. The key to this success, as the speaker asserts, is the protection of each individual heart. Shaitan takes certain steps to capitalize on the weakness of the Muslim by utilizing ten inroads to the heart such as envy, greed, anger and haste. If Shaitan is successful, the ummah will continue to be confused and divided and, in effect, the revival will never happen. This practical presentation raises awareness of these inroads so the believer can be on guard and have hope for winning the battle against Shaitan. An important talk about protecting the heart that can serve as a starting point for real unity and revival. Other topics discussed: excessive love of food and drink, fear of poverty, dislike for those who disagree with us, the mulazima system (studying under a sheikh), making pledges, why the ummah is in such tribulation today, Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahab and the four schools of thought, and making hijrah today.
