Episode 2: Pour Upon Us Patience | Conversing with God

What does it mean to be patient? Sh. Omar Husain recalls the du’a of David when he went up against Goliath and how we can tackle the challenges in our life with patience and grace.


Our Lord, pour upon us patience, and plant firmly our feet, and give us victory over the disbelieving people.

رَبَّنَا أَفْرِغْ عَلَيْنَا صَبْرًا وَثَبِّتْ أَقْدَامَنَا وَانْصُرْنَا عَلَى الْقَوْمِ الْكَافِرِينَ

Rabbana afrigh ‘alayna sabran wa thabbit aqdamana wansurna ‘ala al-qawmi alkafireen
