Last month, we shot a video for The Essentials Program with some of Qurba’s teachers and students. We wanted to keep it real — nothing scripted, nothing rehearsed. So we didn’t tell them what the video would be about, they just showed up and we started asking questions.
As we got into it, our conversation with Shaykh Ramzy Ajem and Shaykh Zahir Bacchus got very interesting. We didn’t really have a list of questions we wanted to ask — we just went with the flow and let the discussion guide itself.
We asked them questions about knowledge, its importance, how to seek it, and how to overcome some of the challenges we face as students. Needless to say, their answers were extremely inspiring and thought-provoking.
We put together a short clip from that conversation of Shaykh Ramzy talking about the benefits of knowledge: confidence, purpose, and clarity.
Watch the video and share your thoughts in the comments below. Has your pursuit of knowledge led to an increase in confidence, purpose, and clarity?
