Anatolia Islamic Centre – Mississauga – Canada

Faith in Allah is of paramount importance for the Muslim. But this faith is often challenged by doubts and desires, undermining it and rendering the Muslim weak in their connection with Allah.

This session explores the origins and nature of doubts and desires and provides practical guidance in addressing them.
