Shaykha Muslema Purmul discusses the components of our faith-based “moral compass” to help navigate our life goals and activities for living a serene life and reaching our final destination successfully. What are the limits and boundaries we should be aware of whenever we are at a crossroads so we will do not lose direction?
Peer pressure isn’t a recent phenomenon that belongs only to our generation. Peer pressure is as old as the creation of human beings. Just the term “peer pressure” has been publicized lately. Many people Muslim and non Muslim experience peer pressure, when moral values clash with actions, practices or behaviors of other youth who live around us, whether they are at school or in a neighborhood. Yusha Evans sheds some light on the issue and gives some good advice to the young and older generation who are facing the problem of peer pressure.
