Among the most foundational beliefs of Muslims is that the Qur’an is the divine, preserved, unparalleled Speech of God. The Qur’an itself challenges those who deny it to “produce something like it” if they are truthful in their claim. This is known as the eternal challenge of the Qur’an, and it is part of demonstrating that the Qur’an’s authorship …
 
Modern technology has made it easier than ever to instantly connect with a world far bigger than our local neighborhoods. It’s given us the opportunity to learn, work, and keep up with our loved ones no matter where we are, and in the midst of a global pandemic, this has been a blessing for a lot of people. However, the smartphone era has also intr…
 
Human beings are imperfect, and no one knows this better than God, but He has given us resources that can help us better understand our shortcomings and how to come back when we stray from His path. Where do sins come from, and what can we do to protect ourselves from them? What’s the difference between sins that come from ourselves and those that …
 
I was not fortunate enough to spend much time with Ryan le Garrec at The Migration Gravel Race in Kenya. Then a few weeks after the dust had literally settled, he released his film documenting the race it brought the whole experience flooding back. I wanted to get to know to the guy who had so accurately represented, in film, the suffering and the …
 
Islam was revolutionary at preserving and elevating the rights of women when it was revealed over 1400 years ago, but today’s challenges and sensibilities may cause us to wonder if that is still the case. However, many of our concerns have been addressed as early as the time of the Prophet (S), when female companions asked him about differences in …
 
The Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ) compared the believers to one body; when one limb aches, the whole body feels it. However, the members of this body come from different backgrounds, and this can sometimes cause us to become disconnected from one another and from our responsibilities to each other. What can we learn from the different experiences of Muslims…
 
Lian and I first met at The Migration Gravel Race in June 2021, where she was capturing the race, the riders and the spectacular Kenyan scenery. This, however, was not the first time I had come across her work. That was earlier in 2021 when I heard about #crackedearthfilm - a film project aiming to reach and engage more cyclists around the globe on…
 
Have you ever felt it was difficult to follow Islamic practices?

“Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” This phrase from the United States Declaration of Independence presents three examples of rights that it says have been given to all people. But what does “happiness” mean from a Quranic perspective? What’s the difference between how Muslims think of happiness compared to people of other faiths? What d…
 
The consumption of drugs and alcohol is a subject that is under-discussed and understudied in the Muslim community. The legalization of marijuana and easy access to vapes and electronic cigarettes should push parents and guardians to take the lead on these conversations in their homes. What is driving people, young and old, to consume drugs and alc…
 
God has given us the ability to reach out to Him for guidance and support in all our affairs, and one of the most challenging of those affairs is parenthood. God does not expect us to fulfill our responsibilities on our own, and He has filled the Qur’an with examples of righteous parents and their prayers for their children. What is missing from ou…
 
God has promised us that with every hardship comes ease, and we know that He does not send any tests or difficulties without the means to seek His aid and relief. Why, then, do we sometimes struggle to trust His plan? What is missing from our understanding of God that can help us feel comfortable with the unknown? What does it look like to do our p…
 
Human beings naturally desire to be in a state of peace, but understanding what that means can be complicated, and the journey to attaining it is full of challenges and distractions. Allah tells us that He is as-Salām, the Flawless, the Source of Peace. How can our understanding of God transform our hearts? What does it look like to be in a state o…
 
Imam Ash-Shafi’i said, in regard to du’a in Tahajjud, “The arrow that is shot at night doesn’t miss its mark.” Sincere du’a and communication with Allah is an antidote to the difficulties we face as individuals and communities.

The Qur’an is the rope of Allah that saves all who hold onto it. It is nourishment for our souls and a light that discerns between truth and falsehood. But its messages and meanings cannot be unlocked without tadabbur: deep and regular reflection. What role should the Qur’an play in the daily lives of those who believe its message? What are the bar…
