Where do we go from here?

Against the backdrop of so much tragedy and destruction in the world today, Straight Talk producer Maha Awad joins Dr. Maher Hathout for a candid conversation about some of the toughest questions facing people of faith: How do we deal and cope as we see and hear of so much tragedy in the world. How do we balance between caring and working for the causes as Allah asks us to, without being overwhelmed and succumbing to depression. How do we maintain a feeling of agency when it is so easy to feel completely helpless. And lastly, why does God allow suffering and what are we supposed to do in the face of such sweeping oppression in places like Gaza, Syria, Iraq, Myanmar, the Central African Republic and beyond?
