As a prolific writer, her words speak from the heart, and she resonates profoundly with her readers. Her audio lectures are downloaded daily in South Africa and have been a regular feature on VOC.
“So often we experience things in life, and yet never see the connections between them. When we are given hardship, or feel pain, we often fail to consider that the experience may be the direct cause or result of another action or experience. Sometimes we fail to recognize the direct connection between the pain in our lives and our relationship with Allah SWT” – Yasmin Mogahed
