From the translator, Faisal ibn Muhammad Shafeeq:
The author of Don’t Be Sad illustrates through the Qur’an and the Sunnah how every modern spiritual ailment can find remedy in Allah’s Book or in the life of the beloved Prophet (blessings and peace be upon him). It is an inspiring collection of historically-based anecdotes of prophets, scholars, and other people of accomplishment and their victory over life’s turmoil and tests. This book attempts to offer strength to people today to aid them in their struggle to maintain emotional and spiritual equilibrium in a demanding world during trying times.
