Advice to the Youth Series – Get Involved

‘You are the best community brought forth to men, enjoining decency, and forbidding indecency, and believing in God.’ [Qur’an 3:110]

Get involved – establish local circles of learning, get involved with theyouth in your area, help provide facilities for young people to come to for both learning and play. We should establish Muslim Youth Centre all across the country and these should be run by young people who know what the youth want, although the premises itself maybe overseen and managed by elders.

Don’t be put off by groups and labels. If there is an organisation doing good in your area and they are the only ones doing it, get involved and try to help out. Muslims need to start accepting our differences and complementing one another in the work that we do instead of re-inventing the wheel and creating rival mosques, madrasas, organisation who all work in the same area but don’t talk to each other or complement each other’s work.

Get involved at the local level and make a positive contribution to the area in which you live. Volunteer a little of your time for the community. Give them advice, support them with ideas and help them build a community where everyone would want to live.

Get involved!

23 Jumada Al Ukhra 1433 | Hadith of the Day | The Virtues of Fajr and ‘Asr

The Messenger of Allah (may Allah bless him and grant him peace) said:

“There are angels which take turns in being with you in the night and other angels in the day and they meet together at the prayers of Fajr and ‘Asr. Then the ones who were with you during the night ascend and Allah asks them – although He knows better than they do – ‘How were My slaves when you left them?’ They say, ‘When we left them they were praying and when we came to them, they were praying.’

[Sahih Al-Bukhari]
