A product of the Jamaican diaspora striving to give back in ways of sharing content regarding Islam – to my family, people, non-Muslims and Muslims at large.
Qur’an: “Invite to the way of your Lord (i.e to sole worship of the Creator with no associates) with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best. Indeed, your Lord is most knowing of who has strayed from His way, and He is most knowing of who is [rightly] guided.” (16:125)
Some of the Salaf (i.e our righteous predecessors) said: “I do not know which of the two blessings upon me is greater, the blessing that Allaah guided me to Islam from amongst all the religions, or the blessing that Allaah guided me to the Sunnah (i.e The example/ way of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him) from amongst all the groups and sects. They are two great blessings: the blessing of Islam and the Sunnah (i.e The example/ way of the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him).”
Furthermore, this blog is a reminder to myself first & foremost.
“And remind, for indeed, the reminder benefits the believers.” (Qur’an: 51:55)
