Megillah 31

In today’s Daf Yomi page, the quality of mercy

January 12, 2022

Today’s Daf Yomi page, Megillah 31, surprises us with a tender insistence that you can’t mention God without mentioning his humility. Sheikh Faiyaz Jaffer of NYU’s Islamic Center joins us to discuss how the Creator can be both almighty and humble, and what concrete behavioral and psychological lessons this insight offers us today. How does prayer help us remember God’s infinite mercy? Listen and find out.
