Developing a Muslim identity is not just about how we look. It is about how we behave; Our character includes good deeds and patience!

[103:2] Indeed, mankind is in loss,
[103:3] Except for those who have believed and done righteous deeds and advised each other to truth and advised each other to patience.
[Quran, Surah Al- Asr (the Time)]

We want a better world then we need a better self! If others choose to live by ignorance it does not mean we need to follow.

O’Allah guide us to what is best in actions, thoughts and intentions. Ameen!

Peace of mind, body and spirit is what ‪#‎Islam‬ brings to those who understand.

The very first command to the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was “Iqra”, “Read!”

The very first command to the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was “Iqra”, “Read!”

Many of us fail at even some of the most basic acts in life simply because we do not “READ!”

The semantics of the linguistic aspects of read vs recite I personally do not feel are important especially if it distracts us from the far more important detail behind the incident. The point of the experience for Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was that he was commanded to repeat a message that he would share with all mankind, which Ameer Akhtar mentioned in his post above, is that the message was not simply a command to blindly repeat what was being revealed (read/recite). It was a command to understand what what was being revealed based on our God given ability to reason an to use that reason to apply the message based on correct understanding. We get that correct understanding from the Qur’an and the example of our Prophet through his authentic sunnah. in shaa’Allah

I am better then you… Who says? My ego!!!

I am better then you… Who says? My ego!!!
Subhanna’Allah, be humble folks. There is always someone better. If not now there will be. We all age and we all get replaced except for those who have sincere remembrance of Allah. He replaces no one unless they choose to be replaced through their own inaction.
O’Allah protect us from ourselves. Ameen!
