Beware of the “Spiritual Void” by Nouman Ali Khan
Posted by almuqarraboon in MSA advice, Self-Development on March 26, 2011
NOTE: There is music in this video, so only put your volume on when you see Br. Nouman Ali Khan.
This is the first post under “MSA Advice” for a reason. Many times we get so caught up in running an amazing MSA and in helping this Muslim and that Muslimah, but we do it, at our own expense. Sometimes we become so engrossed in calling out to everyone else, that we fail to notice that our own hearts are deteriorating. That they are becoming hard, that our deeds are frighteningly insincere, and that our advice is only for others and never for ourselves. This video discusses this “spiritual void,” a gaping hole that sometimes appears inside of some “active” brothers and sisters, a condition that deserves our attention and acknowledgment.
As Allah swt says in Suratul Baqarah:
“Do you order righteousness of the people and forget yourselves while you recite the Scripture? Have you then no sense?”
