A Million Dollar Dream
Rows of Juniper trees line the garden area and look more orange than green. Fair enough, it is the peak of the fall season. With vending machines carrying his favourite soda, a tennis court with lush green flooring, cafeterias with all the right snacks, and rich brown staircases going up the 12-storey building, Ahmed -...

Interview with Tuaha ibn Jalil
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.
Review: First Ever YC Book Club!
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.

The Opportunity of a Lifetime
"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.

A Question of Deen and Dunya: How to Follow Religion Today?
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.
Reason & Revelation
By Talha Waqas Modernism in relation to real life is a double edged sword. On one edge, there are the benefits of greater scientific and technological developments that advance humanity. The other edge emphasises movements and concepts that deny firm long-held beliefs on morality, liberty, and religiosity. Modern movements such as liberalism, secularism, and radical...
