Mashallah. Very nice video. I pray that more muslims will unite and stop the disease of fitnah.
Ameen Ya Rab.
sA I love this tafsir series. May Allah bless Hisham Ezzeldine for recording them and Imam Suhaib for dropping knowledge for our benefit. I disagree that there is no slavery today. It’s so sad but the exploitation of workers in places like Dubai where people are brought from 3rd world countries, lied to about the wages they will receive, having their passports taken, and forced to live in filthy subhuman conditions is a reality. As is sex-trafficking and the like. 🙁 May Allah guide the human race.
