Important! Please Read!

Before exploring my blog, please remember this: If you came here to sincerely learn about Islam, please be open minded. Let go of any ill-feelings, ideas, thoughts, impressions, etc. that you may have against Islam or Muslims, due to the media or judging a "Muslim."

For better understanding of Islam and Muslims, I suggest reading the posts in order starting from August with the label Introduction to Islam (scroll down and look to the right for blog archive for proper order (from bottom to top)).

If you are interested in learning more about Islam and Muslims and would like additional materials/information, please leave a comment and I will try my best to help.

*Information that reads "Sisters" is for females ONLY. Likewise, anything reading "Brothers" is for males ONLY. Whether "sisters or brothers" is mentioned throughout my blog or on another site, please respect the rights of other people, both Muslims and non-Muslims.

**I do not intend to argue or debate with anyone, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and beliefs. If something is personal, disrespectful, or offensive, keep it to yourself. THINK BEFORE YOU ACT! (this includes what you type) If you do not wish to learn about Islam or Muslims, but just want to start trouble, do it somewhere else, not here! (or better, don't start trouble at all) Haters are NOT welcome here!

Please leave comments or questions you may have regarding Islam or Muslims. I will get to them as soon as possible. Enjoy your time here!

A Message to the Youth by Riad Ouarzazi lecture notes

1. Why were you created? What was the purpose of your creation? Do you live by the commands of Allah? Do you live by the ways and teachings of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W)? Who do you worship? Allah created you to worship Him alone! (learn more about worship here Be one, for one, on one! Be yourself, be His slave, not anyone else’s or material things ex. money, on the path of Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W).

2. Who are your friends? Do they really care about you for who you really are? A friend is a (mirror) reflection of you! Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) said, "A person will follow in the footsteps of their close friend so be careful who your friends are."

3. Are you proud of your religion and way of life, Islam? What have you done for Islam? Do something for the sake of Allah! Allah will ask all of us what we did with our knowledge. Did you act upon it? Did you teach it to others? Are you proud of your identity? Are you proud to be a Muslim?

4. Are you really pleased with your relationship with your Lord Allah? Are you ready to meet Allah if you were to die today? Do you think your scale of good deeds outweighs your bad deeds?
