بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

For the New Islamic Year, I’d like to give you guys a gift from the Qur’an:

” وَهُوَ مَعَكُمْ أَيْنَ مَا كُنْتُمْ “

 It’s a wonderful reminder that wherever we are, wherever we go- that whatever happens this upcoming year and wherever we end up- through every detail of it, Allah (SWT) has been, and will be with us through it. That He will be witness to all of our highs and lows, and what ever hardships we face and how we’ll bravely overcome them or how we’ll terribly fail, through this entire process of changing and becoming who we are, Allah (SWT) will be witness. 

I’m saying this as a reminder to tell you that HE will see all that you do this year, and also as a reminder that hey- HE will be there- so don’t forget to call on HIM. During both, the highs and lows, in gratitude and in cries for help, don’t forget that HE’s there. Truly feel his presence, and let it envelope you with feelings of safety and tranquility and righteous company. Happy Islamic New Years guys.

Hello? Earth to Muslims

THUMBNAIL EARTH TO M.

بِسْمِ اللهِ الرَّحْمٰنِ الرَّحِيْمِ

Nothing irks me more than a person with the name Mohammad who represents Islam without wanting to, and is an example of everything it’s not.

You know, that one guy in class, Mohammad, who walks in the halls with his hand in his girlfriend’s, his 2nd girlfriend’s. And let’s not talk about the hourly smooching sessions he likes to hold with her at the end of the hallway right by the stairs, as everyone watches.

So much for modesty, Mohammad.

This is the guy that likes to yell “Allah” for fun as a joke with his friends, and gets excused from running the mile in gym class because “I’m fasting today Mr.Brown” and then you see him stuffing his face with cafeteria spaghetti right after. Continue reading

Islamic New Years

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Salam and inshAllah we all start the new year off on the right foot. I was hoping to post something motivational for new years, and after searching youtube a bit, I couldn’t find something exactly “motivating”, but I did find something that I thought was worth sharing. I don’t know how many people have seen a video by the guy on Talk Islam who does spoken word videos, but oh my, they are really amazing, every time I watch one I get goosebumps, and in a good way. So, on my search I came across one of his spoken word videos that I missed, and I decided it would be worthwhile to share since we’re all in this together.

However, with this 3 step approach, I’ve gotten better at reaching my spiritual goals, so I’m sharing them today with you so that you can use them too 🙂 Continue reading
