About: Disability is many a time seen as a negative in our societies, especially Muslim societies where someone is not given the equal right or opportunity as his or her counterpart.  However classically it was very different. The Shaykh gives a the audience a shock when he expresses the different sahaba or our pious predecessors that are known by nearly every Muslim but were disabled in some way. The amazing thing the Shaykh brings to their attention is these people never let their disability come in the way of their religious success and nor did any of the people around them perceive this as a negative. Infact knowledge was passed through these very people and brought to us today. Watch the lecture and find out who these stars of the Ummah were.
