  1. Inna lillahe wa inna ilayhe raja'oon, may Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) bless and protect our brothers and sisters in Iran and prevent the outbreak of another senseless war. Ever since I heard the news, the main question on my mind has been: who talked Trump into this? From a strategic and foreign policy perspective, it's a foolhardy action that makes no rational sense and has no net benefit for the US. This act has no modern precedent because such acts of aggression are never done openly, they're always done strategically. If they had simply wanted General Soleimani dead, they c
  2. Would a trial separation be a feasible option for you and your wife? Maybe if you took a month or two apart to get clarity on your needs, it could help you refocus and consider how to proceed. If there's any part of you that still loves her, perhaps you could communicate to her what you're missing or what specifically you need out of the marriage that isn't there. When it comes to something as critical as the future of your family, you shouldn't walk away without exploring every possible solution.

  3. Salaams, Don't pressure yourself so hard to feel that elusive inner peace, and don't tell yourself that its absence means you aren't deeply beloved by Allah (سُبْحَانَهُ وَ تَعَالَى) or that your worship isn't being accepted.

Sometimes, if we worship with an underlying motive of becoming happier or gaining inner peace, it backfires because we aren't worshiping Him with true clarity- our desire
  4. The consolidation of media ownership over the past few decades has resulted in a narrow standardization of perspectives, norms, aspirations, and habits that has essentially robbed people of the impulse to seek truth and meaning for themselves. Capitalist culture has standardized amorality and hedonism, consumerism has replaced spirituality, celebrity worship has replaced religious reverence, and superstition has replaced scientific inquiry. The escalation of surface-level social media has only worsened the severity of these issues, and there's seemingly no escape now because our mos
  5. Don't fear the questions or allow them to make you feel ashamed or insecure; lean into them and face them with courage. Challenge yourself to pursue the answers, no matter how much time and mental energy it takes, because the pursuit of knowledge is one of the highest forms of worship. It seems like the issue isn't simply that you're doubting the existence of God, the more immediate issue might be that you're doubting the existence of valid answers to your questions. So start with the basics: can something arise from nothing? If the known universe began with the big bang, where d
