My Beloved Son

Many centuries ago, a father gave a valuable piece of advice to his son. Frequently, Muslims study the first verses of Luqman’s advice and his son’s dialogue without paying close attention to the second part of the passage. Thus, I would like to take this opportunity to discuss the wisdom embedded in these two verses. […]

Essential Disciplines for Spiritual Maturity

Brokenness and Breakthrough Once upon a time, the different kinds of birds gathered to select a king to rule over them.

Practicing Contentment

Many people assume wealth is measured by how much money one has; Prophet Muhammad ﷺ, however, offers an entirely different perspective. Abu Hurayrah reported that the Messenger ﷺ said, “Wealth is not the abundance of [material] possessions; wealth is self-contentment” (Bukhari & Muslim).

No Fear, No Wall

“No Fear, No Wall” The Need for having Hope and Building Bridges    Last month was very eventful. The U.S. President signed an executive order preventing travelers and refugees from 7 majority-Muslim countries, with the exception of minorities under persecution, from entering the United States. Regardless of the legal wording of the order, many observers […]

The Power of Gratitude (2)

Many of us have frequently exclaimed: “al-hamdulillah!” (Praise and thanks are due to Allah)following something good that happened in our life. Is this the only way gratitude is supposed to be expressed? Do feel grateful only for the good? If the answer is “yes,” then we have a very narrow meaning of gratitude? Anyone can […]

And Do Not Conceal Testimony

My message to you is an urgent reminder of the importance of giving testimony in Islam and the gravity of bearing witness to what is true and just. This advice comes in light of a tragic rise in our community’s unresolved conflicts rooted in bearing false testimonies. These testimonies destroy livelihoods, marriages, and families. Allah […]
