The Suleman Maknojioa’s of our communities need to be called out and shunned!

The Suleman Maknojioa’s of our communities need to be called out and shunned!

I just read a very disturbing article about a “hafiz” by the name of Suleman Maknojioa who was sexually abusing a young student while teaching them the Qur’an. Can you believe this?! How can someone teach the word of Allah, the speech of Allah, the message from Allah and commit this atrocious crime against a young innocent child. What is shocking is that the UK’s court system has freed this man because he is the main provider for his family. What is even more shocking is the lack of uproar! We don’t like cartoons, videos, or even bad jokes, but for this we haven’t been as vocal against it as we can be. More

We Need More Shows Like MBC’s Omar

I recently finished watching the 30-part television series on the second Caliph of Islam, Amir-ul-Mumineen, Umar ibn al-Khattab.  I was hesitant in watching it as I was scared of their portrayal and representation of the sahaba.  After watching the entire series I am overwhelmed with joy, happiness, excitement and sadness all at the same time.  It was joyous seeing what I read in the seerah come to life.  It was happiness seeing hadith play right in front of me.  It was excitement to see the spread of Islam throughout Arabia and beyond.  It was sadness to see the deaths of the Prophet (may the peace and blessings of Allah be upon him and the Companions of the Prophet (may Allah be pleased with them all).
