Anyways, just wanted to share one of my newer buddies, Sarah Farrukh  - from the land of Twitter - just won best blog and best writer in this year's Brass Crescent Awards - do check her blog out sometime -

Nice article by sr Se7en on how we often fail to recognize the vulnerability of those who are already 'practicing'.  http://www.suhaibwebb.com/society/dawah/the-overlooked-struggle/

omA, I was about to post the same article (though I am not surprised it is already up, since I'm getting it to it so late)! Just read it! It was so goooood! Well written Sr Se7en! I gave it a Facebook "like" a Google+ "+1" and yes, tweeted it out! The Trifecta!

Anyways, more importantly - really made me think and remind me we all have our ups and downs, regardless of where we might be in our journey.

OK, should I have just typed this on the article? Well, let's hope Sr Se7en sees this post.

Jazak'Allahu Khairan sis!

Have always loved your articles, before making/knowing about the Madina connection   Wink

Sufyan bin 'Abdullah Ath-Thaqafy reported that he said,

“I said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, tell me about Islam a thing which might dispense with the necessity of my asking anybody after you.’ Prophet (Sallallahu A’laihi wa sallam) remarked, ‘Say I affirm my faith in Allah and then remain steadfast to it.’ ”

( Recorded by Imam Muslim in Kitab Al-lman (Book on Faith), no. 62/38; also recorded by Imam Ahmad in Al-Musnad, no. 2/413.)

Read it’s explanation from Jami’ Al Ulum wal Hikam by Ibn Rajab al Hanbali

The Sahabiyyat (Women Companions) were the noble women who were the contemporaries of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu A’laihi wa Sallam). They were the pure, ideal muslim women, and were honored during the very lifetime of the Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu A’laihi wa Sallam) with the prediction that they would live forever in Paradise in the Hereafter. Their achievements and influence are found in every sphere of that momentous period in the history of the world, when the whole of humanity would be transfigured forever. They were as active in religion as in politics, as courageous in war as in the peaceful and persuasive propagation of the teachings of Islam. These noble selfless women could be found in the battlefields among the foremost ranks of those taking part in Jihad. They were to be found in the political arena, in the field of education, in the courts of Islamic jurisprudence, in the interpretation of Shari'ah, in trade and commerce, in agriculture, in medicine and in nursing. In short there was no sphere that did not benefit from their intellect, their wisdom and their gentle yet firm strength of character.

I LOVED her blog, mashallah, it's soooo rare to find a real, realistic, honest-to-goodness truthful Muslim blog out there. I don't think that she's updated in ages but it's still fun to scroll through!

Who IS this guy??? I just read some of his articles and I'm absolutely mind-blown, some of the best writing that I've ever seen! Well-educated, well-versed in science and philosophy, and critically engaging the world...
