Following Hadith taken from "Gardens of the Righteous" : The Holy Prophet (saws) said: Were you to put your complete trust in Allah, He would provide for you as He provides for the birds.  They issue forth hungry in the morning and return filled in the evening.

 MKA FIT's - STUDENT ATHLETE SPOTLIGHT: Toseef Chaudhry Sehat-e-Jismani’s next Student-Athlete Spotlight is Toseef Chaudhry. A thriving football star and student from Laurel, MD, Toseef began as a novice player and trained ferociously to eventually become a perennial starter and leader in his high school football team.

Since then, our young Khadim has entered college and has joined his collegiate football team, describing this new trial as a transition from “complete stress to extreme joy.” Drawing from these experiences, Toseef...
