Reflections on the Road – Madinah and Mecca w/ Shaykh AJN and Br. AR Murphy

*Update 8/18/12* Conclusion (last episodes) to the series added! It was an awesome series mash’Allah!

MV: Do you wish you were in Madina and Mecca this Ramadan? So do I! Although one day insh’Allah, our two friendly Shaykh and Ustudh, Shaykh Abdul Nassir Jangda and Br. Abdur Rehman Murphy have been recording their reflections from Mecca to Madinah, alhumdollilah. Just watching their reflections are such a big tease but at the same time it really makes you see the miraculous place these big Holy Cities are, subhanAllah. 

Since there gone for the last 10 days for Umrah, they will be adding more and more reflections on the way insh’Allah. I’ll be updating this page with more reflections insh’Allah.

Check them out (videos are from oldest to newest):

Shaykh AbdulNasir shares a deep reflection about his experience in Madinah, thus far on our trip to The Holy Cities.

Shaykh AbdulNasir Jangda drops some introductory info as well as a brief info on Masjid Quba, the first masjid that was ever built in the history of Islam.

Ustadh AbdelRahman Murphy shares a reflection about being content and grateful with and to Allah upon his arrival to Jeddah and Madinah during his Umrah trip.

Shaykh AbdulNasir Jangda gives a brief reflection about community work.

Ustadh AbdelRahman Murphy shares a reflection about being kind to youngsters, particularly in Islamic environments, to create good experiences and positive memories.

Shaykh AbdulNasir Jangda gives us a very important reminder about how trusting in Allah and the guidance He sent down to us through the Beloved Messenger Muhammad (may peace and blessings be upon him) will get us through any issues we have in life.

Ustadh AbdelRahman shares a reflection from the beautiful recitation of the Quran that was read in prayer during taraweeh at Masjid An Nabawi

“And those who struggle and strive for Us (Allah), We will show and guide them of Our paths. For sure, Allah is with those who try their hardest (for His sake).” Surah Al Ankabut 29:69

Ustadh AbdelRahman Murphy shares a reflection about how the janaza prayer is performed, with rare exception, 5 times a day in The Holy Cities.

Shaykh AbdulNasir sharing some heartfelt thoughts on the majesty that is the Kaaba. So many experiences throughout this trip have shown all of the participants how much every Muslim loves and cherishes The House of Allah.

On an average day, just in the 5 prayers, we recite the verse (which is a prayer to Allah, the crux of Surat Al Fatiha) “Guide us to the straight path.” Why do we have to repeat it so much? Ustadh AbdelRahman Murphy shines some light on the reason for repetition, directly linked to the pathways off of the straight path.

After an entire series of reflections from The Holy Cities, Ustadh AbdelRahman Murphy provides a conclusion to the videos with this action item: reflect!
