Share Your Story | Expressions Of Muslim Identity *With NPR*

Alhamdulilah Speaking Of Faith With Krista Teppett has an upcoming project where they are asking the Muslim community to share their perspective. You might not have known but the Catholic community was asked to help with a similiar project earlier this year.

PLEASE SHARE YOUR STORY- Below is a link to direct you to the site!

This is a great opportunity for the Muslim community to be heard on a human level, to show the Muslim perspective on life. Take a few minutes and share something bidnillah,InshaAllah I will do the same.


About a month ago I got a job at the bookstore in my masjid. Alhamdulilah I have went through a lot of great books and today I picked up a book with a collection of poems.

Heaven Without Stars
A Collection Of Poems in Search Of Peace
By Waleed A. Maktari

One of my favorite peoms in here so far is


Your book of deeds
Are your seeds

From under the throne
They will be blown

By the wind
For those who contend
For the end.

Some books shall land
If good, in the right hand.

If it lands in the left
The you shall be bereft.

If given behind your back
It was because you went off the track.

So do good deeds
And tomorrow you reap the seeds.
