i feel like ppl don’t realize how much ksa represents the good life to many muslim communities not just in the material sense but also in the spiritual/moral sense and the 2 are associated in ppl’s minds. like in a lot of places especially in the villages of egypt and sudan ppl think of wahhabis as an elite ppl associated with technology and material comfort. ksa’s wealth and spirituality are linked in a lot of ppl minds.

Ill keep updating it if you wish! Thanks again for asking!

When someone has cancer or diabetes, we don’t say to them, “Just trust Allah”. So why do we say that to those with mental illnesses? Trusting Allah and having faith in His plans is imperative to the life of all Muslims - sick or not. However, Allah ﷻ specifically told us to trust Him and ‘tie your camel’. With mental illnesses, this means treatment is important.

Those with mental illnesses do not need to 'just trust Allah’, they need treatment. Let’s, as the Muslim community, make that more accessible.

I know a new Muslim who had lost his friend because he had accepted Islam..and he is a new Muslim and it does get lonely in Ramadan and other times as well. Please keep him in your duaas insha'Allah. It would mean a lot. (Plus know that reverts in India are hated and degraded very easily. People or family isn’t very supportive and it is hard here so please please pray for him)

The other side

I feel so sick because these tragedies are not enough by themselves.
Europe is stressing and transforming into a Shakespearean tragedy what happened in Manchester.
YES, it was hideous. YES, it was terrible. YES, children lost their lives. YES, their families are in pain.
But Europe is USING this as a propaganda against Muslims.
I live in Italy. And from this morning I heard NO word about Bangkok or Philippines on italian TV, but everything is concentrated on what happened in Manchester.
They don’t even say the news in a normal way if something like this happens in Europe.
That’s mind manipulation though media.
Saying a news is one thing; releasing videos of the tragedy with sad music and poetic words over and over again, it’s not. They aim to touch people’s sensitivity. It’s already bad enough, but they transform it in a “movie” and then? They talk bad about Muslims.
I HATE it.
I just can’t stand this fake piety, European nationalism, racism. Using children’s death to spread more hate.
If there is a God, please, send another flood as we have failed as human beings.

Opinion/Rant: Nouman Ali Khan

So I don’t post a lot anymore but I had to write about this.
I’ve been a huge fan of NAK, HUGE.
His videos and lectures have had a such a defining effect on my life, and helped me change perspectives and understand my religion a little better, his videos were incredibly helpful to me back in 2012 and for that I shall forever be grateful.


Now onto the recent news:

I’m not taking any sides but one thing that is ticking me off big time is the use of the word victim.  

From what I’ve seen so far, all the current evidence i.e it seemed that NAK was flirting with those girls, but it seemed to be consensual. 

It was a conversation happening between a man and a woman, it wasn’t really ‘predatory’.

Again, this is ONLY based on the evidence I have seen so far.


And also, those turning blind, that is also wrong, NAK is human, he isn’t perfect.
He can make mistakes too.


But I urge you all to not form opinions, to not give either party hate and to not add spice to this fueling fire. 

So just wait and see.
