Don’t Hide, Follow the Light
One of the biggest issues facing Muslim Americans today is Islamophobia. All around us, Muslims are targeted simply for being Muslim, making it incredibly hard for the youth of our generation to practice their faith comfortably. Allah ﷻ tells us in the Quran, “وَلاَ تَهِنُوا وَلاَ تَحْزَنُوا وَأَنتُمُ الأَعْلَوْنَ إِن كُنتُم مُّؤْمِنِينَ” “And do not grieve and do not be sad, for you are the higher ones if you were believers.” How can we get Muslim youth to have strength in who they are, without needing to run away or hide?
