The Porn Pandemic hits our Ummah

Ibrahim Khan - 23rd December 2014

I came across a series of absorbing online stories recently at MuslimMatters.org. The one story that really stood out to me out of all this was of a practicing brother who memorises the Qur’an and is active in Da’wah – But is also a porn addict. He is so sad because of this and talks…

Old is Gold

Ibrahim Khan - 16th December 2014

Recently I came across the shocking story of neglect and loneliness. An old lady died six years ago but was only discovered this year.

Gems from 1st Ethical’s Contribution to the IMO Conference in Blackburn

1st Ethical - 9th December 2014

“We have to think: EVERY child of the Ummah is my child and work for change.” “Education is not divorced from feelings and one’s environment, including what has happened during the day. We cannot think feelings are switched off when children come to Madrassah, and, therefore, have to be considerate of this when children are…

Waqaus Ali - 9th December 2014
