The future of the Muslim Ummah needs to be guided and revived so that when they become the elders, they are equipped with the tools to lead. Some nice post coming soon inshallah…
I will be focusing on the Muslim youth this month inshallah. Some nice articles and post will be coming soon, so stay tuned.
Muslim youth is going through the identity crises. Besides identity crises there are going into extremes. Extremes of secularism where they are Muslim by name or by culture and are opposite to the teachings of Islam in every way or form (May Allah guide me and them)- and on the other side some of the youth are going into the other extreme and that is religious and political extremes where some youth due to the conflict of the predominant Anti-Islamic/Secular culture and the Islamic teachings that they notice they become reactionaries.
Both extremes are dangerous, both of them are based on the lack of knowledge and the understanding of Islam. Both extremes need to be confronted, against both extremes Jihad needs to be waged by the Imams, political leaders, social leaders, elders and the older Muslim youth.
Since the youth is warm-blooded and has a pure heart and mind, they want instant result and get emotional and reactionary to the social issues they face. This requires leadership by elders with wisdom, and it requires a burden of responsibility of seeking Islamic education from authentic sources.
Some nice posts will inshallah be coming, and the first post that was posted regarding reviving the Muslim Youth was the “Somali Boy- A Poem by Brother Awil Jama.”
It starts from us as an individual. We change ourselves by gaining the understanding of Islam. I can’t dream of changing the society if I don’t change myself. We have to start with our selves and then go beyond and as Brother Awil Jama said in his poem that the change is one Du’a away.
