Yaqeen Institute for Islamic Research

Addressing the Topic of Trauma and Faith – Sh. Omar Suleiman | ISNACON 2019

Sh. Omar Suleiman discusses some of the findings from the “Doubt Survey” an early Yaqeen Institute project where we assessed why people were leaving Islam or having doubts about faith. One of the trends we found is that many people’s doubts stemmed from traumatic incidences. In response, Yaqeen created the Trauma Series to address the impact of trauma on faith and to help the community heal.
