Don’t be like Waqas!


In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful…

I came across this great little video and it made me think of the state of the Muslims today. We have THE TRUTH and we are a shamed of it. Sisters are ashamed to put on the hijab, brothers are ashamed to grow out the beard! Subhan’Allah!

We should be an example to the rest of the humanity and we should talk about our religion proudly and loudly.  Of course, in order to be able to do that, we must first learn about our religion, but know my brothers and sisters — we have nothing to be ashamed of. We have nothing to hide!

Muslim converts often criticize their Muslim coworkers, friends, and neighbors for not telling them about this beautiful way of life early on.

Allah, the Exalted, gives us direction by saying:

“Call people to the path of your Lord with wisdom and inspiring speech. Reason with them in a superior and respectful manner. Certainly, your Lord knows best who strays from His path and who is guided.” (Qur’an 16:125)

The Blessed Prophet told us about da’wah:

“Convey this Message, even if only one sentence (ayah).” “Learn the required precepts of Islam and the Qur’an, then teach them to others, for I will not live forever.” (Bukhari)

This is just a short post because I came across this beautiful video! May Allah forgive all our shortcomings and guide us and all of our loved ones to the straight path!
