Our upcoming project will be an in-depth study into the lives of the youth that carried Islam on their shoulders. Youth that were always found on the front lines, nothing to lose and so much to gain.
We aim to draw inspiration and life lessons from their rich history thus trying to figure out solutions to the many problems that we as young adult Muslims face today.
عن أبي هريرة رضي الله عنه قال :سمعت رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم يقول : (سبعة يظلهم الله في ظلّه يوم لا ظل إلا ظله: إمام عادل، وشاب نشأ في عبادة الله، ورجلان تحابا في الله اجتمعا عليه وتفرقا عليه، ورجل ذكر الله خالياً ففاضت عيناه، ورجل قلبه معلق بالمساجد، ورجل تصدق بصدقة فأخفاها حتى لا تعلم شماله ما تنفق يمينه، ورجل دعته امرأة ذات منصب وجمال فقال: إني أخاف الله رب العالمين ) أخرجه البخاري ومسلم
It was reported from Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him) that the Prophet (pbuh) said: “There are seven whom Allaah will shade with His shade on the day when there will be no shade except His: the just ruler; a young man who grows up worshipping his Lord; a man whose heart is attached to the mosque; two men who love one another for the sake of Allaah and meet and part on that basis; a man who is called by a woman of rank and beauty and says ‘I fear Allaah’; a man who gives in charity and conceals it to such an extent that his left hand does not know what his right hand gives; and a man who remembers Allaah when he is alone, and his eyes fill up.” (Agreed upon, narrated by al-Bukhaari, no. 620; Muslim, no. 1712; and others).
Stay tuned! 🙂
