    Courage to Obey

    When we absorb the beauty and tranquility of the Holy city of Madinah al-Munawarrah and how this city paved the way for a thriving Islamic community, we can’t help but wonder how migrating to this great city even became a possibility for the early Muslims. Times were extremely difficult in…

    A True Sense of Community

    Community. Unity. Identity. These were the themes for the Generation Muslim Conference in Edmonton this year. It’s interesting because all three of these concepts are unique but also intricately linked. A community is built upon a shared sense of unity and a collective identity, and the importance of these values…
