umm abdillah, Radio Islam Programming

“Indeed (weak) horses run faster when they accompany stallions - so too, the path of Sunnah is much more enjoyable with the congregation.”

The above quote famously attributed to Moulana Jalaludeen Rumi (RA) allows us appreciate the value of doing things together. We like being led by example, and we also enjoy the feeling when our actions are endorsed by popular sentiment. It gives us courage. If anything, tedious, unpopular actions become tolerable, if not appealing when we know everybody approves. Having a Leader is a timeless sunnah, one which enables us to carry out any action purposefully. On that note, and in light of Radio Islam’s #BeardBro Campaign, the sunnah beard has gained a resurgence, becoming popular in unusual circles. Men (and women) of all ages have taken note how something once deemed "untidy" "ageing" and "too religious" is actually normal. Muslim boys and men who prefer a clean shave (fitting the monoculture) feel left out. It leads to many conclusions – among them - the fickleness of “fashion trends”; the timeless popularity of the Sunnah; how market trends are controlled and manipulated; and how men (and women) become pawns to cosmetic capitalism. It should at the very least have us desiring to follow the Sunnah. read more

A man was in a hurry to meet his friend down at the nearby lake. On the way down there, he was stopped by a man fully dressed in red. The man pulled over, and the red man asked, "Hi, I'm the red jerk of the highway. Have anything to eat?" The man smiled and handed him a sandwich. He continued down the highway and was yet again pulled over by a man fully dressed in green. He stopped and the guy in green said, "Hi, I'm the green jerk of the highway. Have anything to drink?" Without smiling, the man handed the green guy his coke. He started off again and started to speed down the highway. Yet again he was stopped by a guy fully dressed in blue. Sighing, he pulled over and pulled down his window, leant out and said, "Let me guess. You're the blue jerk of the highway. What do you want?" "May I have your license please and a ticket coming up..." came the reply.
