As we strive to become better Muslims in a post-pandemic world, let’s question ourselves as to how we’ve repaid Allah’s love and mercy for us. We’ve been tested severely these past couple of years, but have those tests led us closer to Him? While entertainment festivals are packing in the masses on a weekly basis, are our masjids and knowledge gatherings equally, or even more filled up? I think we all know what the answer to this question is…
There is no Sederhana in the hereafter. A “happy medium” does not exist. It’s either Jannah or Jahanam. And it’s very obvious what we should be working for. And no matter how much we struggle with our sins and imperfections, we should not lose sight of this ultimate goal.
Salam Ma’al Hijrah! I think we can all agree that many of us need a major ‘hijrah’ when it comes to our social media habits and consumption. For a Muslim, the risks are apparent and aplenty. It’s fertile ground for cultivating everything ‘mazmumah’ – self-centredness, envy, jealousy, arrogance, love for the world etc. So, how do we go about making such a big change? By taking small but effective steps.
