I have just completed a article for a Muslim Men’s Magazine that to my understanding will be out around July. There are a few magazines for sisters but Alhamdudilah the time has come for a publication to deal with the issues of brothers.
In general I feel that our community is headed into the wrong direction of the abyss of apostasy, scattering, deviance and false moderation. I have so many other things to do in my life I do not even have time to argue and I most especially do not have time to argue with people who have no regard for Quran and Sunnah and all the regard in the world for their secular educations. A lot of these people are not serious and it is known where their heart is and that is with the Western Secular elite. So, if those are your people, then go be with your people and follow them. If you are scared to say kafir or scared to be proud to be Muslim then go and be with your fellow Playtex Muslims.
What we can all do in our personal lives is try and be good Muslims and do what we can for our families and communities. Yesterday was the Annie Malone May Day parade in St. Louis which celebrates an organization dedicated to the youth of St. Louis. I was proud to drop my nephew off at the Wellston Housing Authority Boxing Gym where he trains with Coach Keith Abdul-Qawi and Ron Harris and the team marched in the parade.
Later I dropped my wife off at a sisters house ( FYI, one of the sisters is a young sister, never been married, and looking to get married with the consent of her mother) and I had the chance to be at home by myself for the first time in over a year.
My initial plan was to watch basketball; but I could not get the TV to work as we had some video equipment plugged in and I couldn’t get it restated. So, I sat all day and worked on my novel and the article for the magazine and had a productive day Alhamdudilah.
I would like to remind all of us to keep the suffering Muslims in all over the world in our prayers. Let us especially in America, since we foot the bill for the armies of occupation in Iraq and Afghanistan, pray for the Muslims in those lands and that Allah
