    Salaam alaykum,

    indeed a beneficial and much needed reminder. The brother is an awesome speaker and I have had the privilege of working with him on different initiatives. However. a correction is needed. I speak on behalf of Journey of Faith organizers when I say that he hasn’t been one of our speakers at the Journey of Faith conference yet. Shukran. Was salaam alaykum.

    I remember listening to this lecture live, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room. Talking about the Mother is an amazing topic because it is something everyone can relate to!

    Sh AbdulGhani is an amazing teacher, walhamdulillah. He also taught Al Aqeedah tul Wasitiyyah as well at AHC, Abu Huraira Centre.

    Definitely one of my favourite lectures!
