Friday Reflections 10.07.2020

Salam alaikum. Jummah Mubarak. In this week’s Friday Reflections I read from Mercy Oceans Endless Horizons (1981) by Mawlana Shaykh Nazim Adil Al-Haqqani, and discuss the how we achieve happiness, along with our rights and responsibilities as citizens within our societies. https://youtu.be/vgHt8sn_i40
