social mediaA key feature of the era we live in is the rapid development of technology and the continuous impact this has on our lives, both in terms of the way we live and how we spend our time. As Muslims we understand that the purpose of our life is to acquire the pleasure of Allāh ta‘ālā, by spending each moment of our life in accordance with His commands.

Such constant dhikr (remembrance) of the glorified name of our beautiful Creator ushers nothing but sheer and soothing, sweetness and sereneness to one’s heart. On a more awe-inspiring level, the heartfelt dhikr of the adored name of our ever-loving Allah Ta’ala is a clear indication of one’s love, reverence and total reliance on our mighty Allah Ta’ala.

What a wonderful thing it is for a Muslim to remove a difficulty / obstruction from the path of a pedestrian?

Fatimah Kadumy is the founder of Bait al Karama – “the House of Dignity” – a cooking school situated in the heart of the Old City of Nablus, which rests on the principle that it is just as effective to fight the Israeli occupation through sugar and spice, as Molotov’s and stones.
