      Positive Outlook

      Before you’re born, your world is confined to the walls of the womb. You’re fed, you’re watered, and always protected. When you enter the world, suddenly those walls careen outwards — your environment expands and you see the reality of what was actually happening while you grew. As a child,…

      Detox Period

      Camp Sunnah is the greatest week-long experience I have ever had the opportunity to be a part of. I have never been for Hajj or Umrah and Insha’Allah I will get the chance to someday, but I expect to experience something similar to what I went through at CS. In…

      A True Sense of Community

      Community. Unity. Identity. These were the themes for the Generation Muslim Conference in Edmonton this year.

A community is built upon a shared sense of unity and a collective identity, and the importance of these values…

      The Lonely Ramadan

      See, in some ways I have felt that I have been ‘missing out’ on Ramadan. This perspective began to transform from a passing thought to an ingrained belief. I began to believe that I was being made to miss out on the blessings of this month. Unable to fast, missing…

      Rising Above Excuses

      During the time of Rasulullah (saws), a Bedouin approached him and asked Matas sa`a – When is the Day of Judgment? During this time, Rasulullah (saws) was already speaking and didn’t respond to the question immediately. The Bedouin continued to repeat the question three times. Rasulullah (saws) didn’t respond.

      Of those who are grateful

      This Ramadan, like many of you, I made du’ah. Du’ah for health. Du’ah for Jannah. For family. For friends. For Hajj. For my parents. For countless blessings – small and large. I am sure that many of us have made du’ah for some of these things for years, for as…

      Our actions are a seed

      Our actions will always have a reaction— nothing we do is without consequences, whether positive or negative. Our actions may seem minuscule and tiny in nature, often we hold the thought that one individual or one action is useless.
