I was a zestful and energetic young lad who had no other purpose except to enjoy life to its fullest. I did crazy stunts in my life because I believed that you only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. However, I was wrong; it’s not YOLO. It’s YOLT - You only live twice. It was a fatal bike accident that changed me completely. I had a near-death experience that made me the person I am today. The accident which I thought to be a catastrophe for me, resulted as a blessing from my Lord.
When I began my journey towards Allah (SWT)’s path, music was actually one of the last things I left. Believe me, I was always looking for ways to justify my music addiction. I had three shelves across my bedroom wall full of music CDs. Not only this, but I also had about 10-15 GBs worth of music stored on my computer. But despite looking far and wide, I was unable to find reasons that would justify my love for music.
Everything is fair in love and art? How exciting is the content pouring into our newsfeed: celeb hot news, steamy photoshoots and the latest movie releases! Seems like the Pakistani media industry is really taking off! Or is it taking a hit? If you see with the divine lens, everything changes. It gets depressing to see how we've morally regressed while everyone thinks we've progressed. Competing with Bollywood and Hollywood, we forget our Islamic core. Every other release is shockingly disturbing- but not for all Muslims.
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 →
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 →
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."

Haniya Hasan Ramadan 2022 is nearly here!

I have written in the past about how Ramadan really... Continue Reading →

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 →
