The Fruit of One’s Labors

Some of what we do is greater than other things depending on where Allah made us excel. It is like a farmer who is producing exotic fruits and he has some trees which are special which he reserves for himself and does not take to the market while some are standard marketable produce and others are below par than what he would want to send to market. Allah grants us special blessings in some areas and makes us deficient in others.

Halloween – Innocent Fun-Time, Spooky or Shirk?

The Halloween hoop-la is crazy and seems like it takes over everyone every year. But instead of going with the tide, we need to educate ourselves and especially our kids about it and tell them why we do not become a part of its festivities. It's not a bad thing to be different. Our religion gives us fun-off times (Come on, you just celebrated two Eids!) and-that should be enough for us. Having fun is absolutely permissible but going to extremes to have it and on the way trampling our beliefs is not only revolting but also implies our extreme lack of faith and lack of pride in our religion.
