A Message of Hope: A Dying Professor’s Last Lecture

Posted on April 14, 2008


Many who are facing a dire situation at work or a major illness give up though as Muslims, Allah reminds us in surah 12, verse 87 that, “Truly no one despairs of Allah’s Soothing Mercy, except those who have no faith.”

Carnegie Mellon Professor Randy Pausch, who is dying from pancreatic cancer, gave his last lecture at the university Sept. 18, 2007, before a packed McConomy Auditorium.

His last lecture video clip has been viewed by over 2 million people, has inspired and has given hope to many of us.
