But now I can't get over the fact that the good families CHILDREN are now affect/infected with this duniya and it's desires
This thread reminded me of the following hadith:
It is narrated on the authority of Abu Huraira that the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) said:
Islam initiated as something strange, and it would revert to its (old position) of being strange,so good tidings for the stranger.
I think it was Hamza Yusuf who said not being part of the modern ‘in crowd’ was probably not a bad thing and children in particular should embrace their individuality.
It is probably true, however, that the somewhat negative aspects of our community tend to be reported more so than the good work being performed by hundreds, thousands nay even millions of Muslims across the globe.
Even more reasons why we should highlight positive Muslim role models!! [See Sr jannah’s thread of modern day Muslims we admire]
