Near the end of a recent CelebrateMercy online broadcast, someone typed in the chatroom: “Someone here just took the shahada!” At first, as the live moderator, I didn’t notice and continued with my closing remarks on webcam.

Save Maryam – Helping the Muslim Youth of Indonesia from Deviating

May Allah (swt) make this project successful.

My personal thoughts is that youth in the Muslim world do not have the same love and inspiration for Islam the way Muslim youth of the non-Muslim world do. ┬áThe Muslim youth of the entire world are all into the same things whether it’s sports, music, movies and the general pop culture. ┬áThe Muslim scholars of the West like Imam Suhaib Webb, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, Shaykh Abdul Nasir Jangda, Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan, Shaykh Yasir Qadhi and many others have the oration skills and connection with not just the youth in the West but the youth in the East as well. I believe this is one way to help them by sending these types of scholars over there to teach them about Islam and balancing the modernity and identity.
