Ayah of the Week
"Indeed Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves."
- Qur'an 13:11
Quran recitation by Muneeb Rafudeen
"Those who spend their wealth in Allah’s cause are like grains of corn which produce seven ears, each bearing a hundred grains. And Allah multiplies the reward even more to whoever He wills. For Allah is All-Bountiful, All Knowing."
Muslims and the Problem of Addiction
Our culture of shame and stigmatization of those struggling with problems we consider taboo is immensely harmful. To acknowledge a problem and recognize the human face dealing with it does not equate to its acceptance or normalization. It is a recognition of the human condition and the consequences of having free will. America is experiencing an addiction epidemic, especially with prescription drug abuse. Muslims should be at the forefront of efforts to solve this crisis. But first, we must assess our attitude towards our own.
Quote of the Week
“The Sunnah of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ is like the Ark of Noah (alayhi salaam). Whoever embarks upon it reaches salvation and whoever refuses is drowned”
- Imam Malik
Ya Rasul Allah (Qasida)
“You are the rope of God and whoever takes hold of it.. is granted success and the pact of pure love.”
