Aymun Sajid The Book Club is the first ever regular YC event I attended. I’m the stereotypical introverted artist-writer kind of person who’d rather read or draw than share common space with other humans. I’d just taken a gap year after 12th grade to try and figure out what my complicated self should do next.... Continue Reading →
By Aymun Sajid I’ve learnt this lesson the hard way. And I still often forget it. Perhaps reminding you will help me remind myself. There are two ways to deal with a problem. The first one is the path I originally took (and one I still struggle to leave). You can ignore your trial. Fake... Continue Reading →
Ramadan is the month for celebrating the Quran which was sent to guide and reform mankind. In this month, we read and hear the Quran more than any other time of the year. Yet why is that despite such exposure to Allah’s words, we don’t get that deeper connection with Allah? As soon as the new moon is sighted, the Quran is put on the shelf again. Certainly it is not merely a book to be read and re-read. How can we build an enduring bond with the book of Allah which does not end with the month but lasts way beyond?
"Make this Ramadan the time when we finally make an everlasting change. Our intention should be that we will continue the good work way after this one month. Make some promises to ourselves that this Ramadan we will finally make that change in our lives that we’ve been thinking about for years. The mindset should be that I will fast and worship Allah not because my family does it or all of our mates do it but because it is incumbent upon me to do this sort of worship."

By Aymun Sajid You’d think that global pop musicians, athletes, Instagram influencers, and YouTubers would all be talking about different concepts. That they’d be promoting different ideas, different topics - right? But there's one conversation that you’ll now find in every corner of social media, that even some of our YC speakers have addressed -... Continue Reading →
Most of us struggle to make time for our religious obligations in the midst of our wordly lives. Today, the majority of Muslims look for an answer to this pivotal question, how to strike a balance between practicing Deen and living in the Dunya? This is a query not just related to contemporary times. It arose in the early stages of Islam as well. A Companion of the Prophet, Hanzala (RA) feared that he had become a hypocrite because, during his day-to-day activities pertaining to his family or his business, thoughts of Allah would slip from his mind. He shared this concern with Abu Bakr (RA) who admitted to feeling the same. So they both went to the Prophet (PBUH) and Hanzala (RA) inquired: "Allah's Messenger, when we are in your company, we are reminded of Hell-Fire and Paradise as if we are seeing them with our own eyes, but whenever we go away from you and attend to our wives, children and business, much of these things go out of our minds.” To read what the Prophet PBUH responded with, read our new article by Muhammad Saddam on balancing practicing religion with dunya.
