We Muslims have celebrities that are different, pious and pure. Among them are people chosen by the King of all kings, people who gained His pleasure and people who strove for Him. Who are these celebrities? How can we make our youth love them instead of the usual actors, singers and players? Read this article for the answers, and for an amazing 'celebrity activity' for the whole family!
As Muslims striving in the cause of Allah, we should have our own criterion to determine if our society is in a positive state or in a decline. We should not depend on rulers or mass media which are not always honest or may be under coercive measures and far from independent to avoid bias or false perceptions. An analysis of history and especially Islamic history can be conducted to investigate this subject. Yet more importantly, the Prophet (SAW) has provided us with many of these barometers in his statements and actions, that provide a wonderful criterion to judge our neighborhood or even the world as a whole.
