Last night Isha prayer and khatira. Tonight will be at Islamic Association of Collin County insha’Allah.

Be a doer, not a talker:

“The believer speaks little and does much, whereas the hypocrite speaks much and does little. When the believer speaks, it is with wisdom. When he is silent, it is in deep thought. When he sees, he takes lessons. When he acts, it is a cure. If this is the way you are, then you are in the constant worship of your Lord.”

– Abu Nuaym Al Asbahanee (ra)

Tonight we took a knee in front of Cowboys stadium in a powerful silent protest. Jerry Jones first tried to appropriate Colin Kaepernick’s protest, then he flat out tried to shut it down. Jones and the NFL owners who have blackballed Colin are on the wrong side of history. Thank you for your leadership tonight Rev. Dr. Frederick Haynes and Friendship-West.

“It never was about the flag. It never was about the anthem. It was always about Christian Taylor, Clinton Allen, Tamir Rice …” #BlackLivesMatter

On a serious note, Sh. Abdullah Hakim Quick is one of my mentors and someone I deeply admire. May Allah preserve our elders in the Deen. Ameen

What won the heart of Khadijah (ra) was the honesty of the Prophet (pbuh) when she employed him. What spread Islam to Indonesia, the most populous Muslim country in the world, was the honesty of the Muslim merchants. Check out Hadith 21 from our #40onJustice series.

Please note that next week we will not be having class.

Deah, Yusor, and Razan are gone from this world but not forgotten. Though they’re no longer in the headlines, they remain heavy on their families hearts. Being with some of them last night was just like being with them last year. This is not something you get over. May Allah shower them with his mercy.

This is the Light house project which is Deah’s old home turned into a youth community center. #OurThreeWinners are still winning.

How are you feeling today?

The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: “Whoever among you wakes up physically healthy, feeling safe and secure, and with food for the day, it is as if he has been given the whole world.”(Ibn Majah)

عَنْ سَلَمَةَ بْنِ عُبَيْدِ اللَّهِ بْنِ مِحْصَنٍ الأَنْصَارِيِّ، عَنْ أَبِيهِ، قَالَ قَالَ رَسُولُ اللَّهِ ـ صلى الله عليه وسلم ـ ‏ “‏ مَنْ أَصْبَحَ مِنْكُمْ مُعَافًى فِي جَسَدِهِ آمِنًا فِي سِرْبِهِ عِنْدَهُ قُوتُ يَوْمِهِ فَكَأَنَّمَا حِيزَتْ لَهُ الدُّنْيَا ‏”‏

Stay grateful. Al hamdulila
