Shaykh Omar Suleiman makes a call to action and he asks us to take note of giants who persevered and because of that persistence we benefit from their legacy.

Imam Omar cautions us against glorifying the actions of the past if we use that as an excuse for our inaction in the present, which is a departure from Prophetic teaching.
