Event description


Our darkest hour is inevitable…

...and when it comes…

...will you recognize the exit signs?

For some of us hardships seem to hit back to back. And for others, it gets so dark, we don’t even notice. And yet others have fallen to such a spiritual low, even feeling disconnected from our Creator.

And that’s the scariest type of all.

“Be patient” is definitely easier said than done. Everyone knows at a logical level what should be done to pull through a moment of difficulty.

Yet, when we’re in the heart of darkness, hollow pieces of advice are the last thing we want to hear. And that’s when we drift into isolation, spiraling into the darkness.

So how do we find our way out?

In this special IlmNight feature, Ustadha Yasmin Mogahed delves into this very matter.

Here’s some of what to expect:

  • How to reconnect with Allah after having been so far away

  • How to recognize your personal triggers

  • How to discover your natural opinion of Allah

  • How to control your knee-jerk reaction to calamity

  • Understanding the difference between Ṣabr and Riḍa

  • How to determine if hardship is punishment or blessing

  • Learn ways to survive and thrive in times of hardship

  • How to leverage our hardships to become stronger and closer to Allah

Ustadha Yasmin is the author of the popular Reclaim Your Heart: Personal Insights on Breaking Free from Life’s Shackles. Coming from a sincere place of experience, Ustadha Yasmin provides a new perspective on love, loss, happiness, and pain.

She is known for her gift of captivating an entire audience with her thoughts and insightful reflections. Ustadha Yasmina is a Psychology graduate, and attained her Masters in Journalism and Mass Communications from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

As a skilled creative writer, her literature speaks from the heart and after completing her graduate work; she taught Islamic Studies and served as a youth coordinator.
