    Ramadan: A Celebration of the Quran

    The month of Ramadan is in which the Qur’an was revealed as a guidance for mankind, clear proofs giving guidance, and the Criterion (for distinguishing right and wrong). So, whoever of you witnesses this month, let him fast it. (Q. 2:185) The month of Ramadan is the when the Qurʾān was first revealed. Ramadan is a […]

    Do Not Be Afraid To Read

    Habeeba Husain I used to go to Sunday School when I was little, a childhood experience to which many Muslims can relate. We would learn short chapters from the Quran, lessons about the Prophets, supplications, and other tidbits of knowledge about Islam. At one Sunday School graduation, (think: end of the year party. You were […]

    What is it Like Wearing Hijab

    Habeeba Husain Before delving into this topic, one must understand every Muslim woman will answer the question, “What is it like wearing hijab?” differently. Muslim women are certainly not monolithic, and people’s experiences vary greatly due to a number of factors including location, age, background, and much more. That being said, this is my experience […]

    Between Hope and Fear

    Habeeba Husain Much of Islam is about balance and moderation, that ever-so-famous middle road. To know Islam endorses this is a very comforting thought. It’s especially important to keep this aspect of the religion in mind when coming upon verses about fearing and keeping hope in Allah. One particular scene of the Hereafter that always […]

    The Qurʾān’s Challenge

    Muslims believe the Qurʾān to be God’s words revealed to the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. The Qurʾān’s divine origin accounts for the reverence Muslims have for the holy book. When recited the Qurʾān is a powerful and compelling communication of God’s words. The Qurʾān is rhythmic, but not poetry. It has prose, but […]

    Justice in Islam

    The world is full of injustices. Mass killings, theft, murder, rape, economic injustice and cheating are constant themes on the daily news. When an injustice is committed, it does not only impact one person, but often all of society. When a home is robbed, it removes the feeling of security from the entire neighborhood. When […]

First Impressions: Al-Raḥmān

First impressions are the most important because they are almost impossible to remove or undo. They set the tone for the rest of the relationship. Therefore, everyone strives to make a good impression on the first day of work, school, or when meeting someone important. As an educator, the impression I give my students on […]

Is Jesus Divine

The Qurʾān makes this clear in the following verse, Christ the son of Mary was no more than a messenger; many were the messengers that passed away before him. His mother was a woman of truth. They had both to eat their (daily) food. See how Allah makes His signs clear to them; yet see […]

Marwa Assar

I was once at a Purification of the Heart Retreat where our teacher asked us to write down reflections each day about what we took away from that day’s education and experience.  He would then call on people to share their reflections. On one of the days, we all went on a hiking trip where […]
