I truly feel for the Sikh community. The amount of hate they’ve faced by fools who attack them thinking they’re Muslim is outrageous.

Hard to watch this, but it’s a daily reality for the Palestinians. This terror is carried out with bipartisan support.

“Imam Al-Junaid's definition of al-Mahabbah (Love of Allah):

عَبْدٌ ذَاهِبٌ عَنْ نَفْسِهِ A servant who is detached from himself (ego)
مُتَّصِلٌ بِذِكْرِ رَبِّهِ Attached to His lord through His remembrance
قَائِمٌ بِأَدَاءِ حُقُوقِهِ Constantly fulfilling His rights
نَاظِرٌ إِلَيْهِ بِقَلْبِهِ Beholding Him with his heart
أَحْرَقَتْ قَلْبَهُ أَنْوَارُ هَيْبَتِهِ The lights of His majesty/awe burned up his heart
وَصَفَا شُرْبُهُ مِنْ كَأْسِ وُدِّهِ And he subsists only on the nectar of His infinite compassion
وَانْكَشَفَ لَهُ الْجَبَّارُ مِنْ أَسْتَارِ غَيْبِهِ The Jabbâr (irresistible) had manifested to him [his heart] through the veils of the unseen
فَإِنْ تَكَلَّمَ فَبِاللَّهِ So, when he speaks, it is by Allah
وَإِنْ نَطَقَ فَعَنِ اللَّهِ And whatever utterance he makes, it is from/about Allah
وَإِنْ تَحَرَّكَ فَبِأَمْرِ اللَّهِ And when he moves, it is by the command of Allah
وَإِنْ سَكَنَ فَمَعَ اللَّهِ And when he is still, he is with Allah
فَهُوَ بِاللَّهِ وَلِلَّهِ وَمَعَ اللَّهِ So, he is by Allah, for Allah, and with Allah.

Imam Ibn al-Qayyim reported this in Madarij As-Salikeen, in the Station of Mahabbah (love), and called it "one of the most comprehensive." - via our Shaykh Dr Hatem al-Haj (Hafithahullah)

May Allah make us amongst them.

On Thursday, the 200th anniversary of Frederick Douglass' birth, his heirs and researchers at American University honored 200 people who they felt embody his work at the Library of Congress. I’m grateful that the Dallas Morning News invited me as one of those chosen to write a reflection on what Frederick Douglass embodies to me.

“Douglass was remarkably consistent not just in his writings and speeches, but in the tenor he maintained while he rose out of those chains to the highest pulpits of the nation. Douglass would always be a spokesperson not merely from his people, but for his people.”

Imagine the scene of the great Muslim legend Salah Al Din stepping down from his throne, crouching behind it, and weeping profusely at the sight of a reunited mother and child. From the Sunnah to Salah Al Din; we are called to maintain this sacred bond.

Please read and share this beautiful historical Islamic framing of our current crisis, and raise your voice for those families who have been ripped apart.
