Journey in Grace with David Sterling

Sat, 19 Aug 2023
The son of Jewish Holocaust survivors, David Sterling, now also known as Hajji Mustafa, embraced Islam in 1976 in Monterrey, California. A seeker of truth, he has since continued in the quest and search for knowledge, wisdom and enlightenment, leading him to the company of some of the noble and notable servants of God.

He details his adventures and experiences in great detail in his recently published book, Journey in Grace: Gems Gathered from a Life on the Path. Having sought out guidance initially through numerous faith practices, he ultimately found truth in Islam, and Journey in Grace is a remarkable account of spectacular experiences upon the spiritual path.

I recently had the opportunity to meet and discuss with Hajji Mustafa about what led him to Islam, the importance of the way of the heart, the preeminence of meditative spiritual practice in Islam, how suffering, hardships and difficulties are in reality gifts from God, and much more.

I pray you enjoy and benefit from this most recent episode of Soul of Islam Radio, and that you may take guidance, wisdom and inspiration from this illuminating conversation with Sidi Mustafa David (Daud) Sterling.

Julien Drolon in a quest for truth, wisdom, guidance and understanding took a spiritual journey on foot in what was essentially a walk towards God that covered the distance of a thousand kilometers in Spain. His seeking ultimately led him to Islam, and later throughout the Muslims world.

Julien met his wife Zara Shafie in Malaysia, and together they founded Halis Media, which is a film and media production company that produces leading-edge documentaries on faith, religion and spirituality. Their most recent film, Freedom has been received with universal praise by both Muslims and non, and features some fifty converts to the religion from across the globe who share their personal experiences and journey to the faith and to spiritual freedom.

In this episode of Soul of Islam Radio, I had the opportunity to discuss with both Julien and his wife about his incredible journey to Islam, how they met and married, the vital importance of media in the world today, the absolute necessity of supporting such faith-based production and content, the role of spirituality in the religion, the importance of proper mentorship and leadership in the faith, the axial age in which we live, the awakening and consciousness of the heart, the two types of knowledge, the necessity of taking Satan seriously, and much more.

The unique healing benefits of black seed, also known as nigella sativa, kalonji, black cumin and others, have been known for over fourteen hundred years due to the statement of the holy Prophet Muhammad ﷺ who stated that these little black powerhouses can cure every disease with the exception of death itself. Yet the miraculous healing power of black seed is only recently being discovered by the western world as one of the most incredible foods for healing the human being.

The black seed is a cure for all diseases with the exception of death.

Crowdfunding with Chris Blauvelt of Launchgood

Fri, 17 Mar 2023
Crowdfunding, also referred to as crowdsourcing, is an ingenious method of sourcing funding for all types of projects and causes by facilitating direct relationships between campaigns and a global audience via the internet, and over the last decade or so has become a key method of making possible programs and initiatives that otherwise would have been impossible to undertake to fruition.

Chris Blauvelt was inspired with the idea of creating a crowdfunding platform primarily designed and intended to support Islamic projects and communities early on when crowdsourcing first became a thing. Guided by both faith and persistence, he was able to successfully launch Launchgood, which to date has funded nearly a billion dollars worth of causes and projects.

In this episode of Soul of Islam Radio, I sit down and discuss with Chris, also known by his Muslim name as Abdul-Rahman, about the remarkable success of Launchgood as we near its ten year anniversary. We discuss topics of spiritual excellence and identity, principles of success and entrepreneurship, the importance of giving and generosity, the great variety of campaigns that can utilize crowdfunding, the unique role of Launchgood in supporting Islamic and faith-based campaigns, and much more.

As we near the holy and blessed month of Ramadan, which is often a time of unity, solidarity, generosity and giving, I pray you enjoy, benefit and are inspired to take action either by supporting a worthy cause, or by initiating one.

To your divine and eternal success.
