MAKING A CONTRIBUTION

Asalamu Alaikum,

     As we all know, the past week has been a tough one for the Muslim community both in the US and all abroad. After the senseless killing of three of our young aspiring youth in Chapel Hill, we grieve and feel a mix of emotions. We have seen a tremendous response all across the world from vigils to demonstrations to lectures and discussions. We ask Allah to grant them the highest levels of Jannah and their families patience and acceptance.

Though there’s a lot to be said about this terrible tragedy, we wanted to reflect on an important lesson to be learned from the lives of Deah, Yusor and Razan. That is, the importance of making a contribution in your community in any way you can. In this short segment, Dr. Mohammed AbuTaleb shares his personal experience in finding his way to making a contribution as well as some tips on finding your unique signature.

Best regards,
