Shaykh Dr. Yasir Qadhi talks about our spiritual aim to leave a good legacy by leveraging our time on earth to do good deeds.
Dr. Qadhi gives three necessary ingredients to leave an endowment that benefits our self and our brothers and sisters in faith and humanity:
1. a sincere intention (Ikhlas) so that righteous people see you as a role model;
2. erase pride and ego (kibr) and become a humble leader with amazing humility (ihsaan);
3. we must actively practice patience (sabr).
Dr. Yasir also pays homage to great American-Muslim scholars like Dr. Ahmad Sakr, Dr. Jamal Badawi and Imam Siraj Wahhaj.
Dr. Yasir delivered this talk at the Muslim Community Center - East Bay (MCC East Bay) in Pleasanton, California on Sunday, October 14, 2018.
