Dear Khuddam, السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته With the conclusion of the blessed month of Ramadan, Eid Mubarak to all of you! It's always a time for exultation and unbridled joy. The lights are lit at home, new clothes are donned, and mother makes her best sweets. But sometimes there's a lingering regret mingled with that joy - a feeling that we didn't quite do enough during Ramadan. People are often heard saying, "I wish I could have done more." More prayers, more Qur'an, more sacrifice, just not enough time to do more, etc. My dear brothers, that chance to do more lay ahead. It is not an opportunity missed. It's a opportunity that lay ahead. And you are conditioned really well in this moment to take on the rigors of advanced spirituality. Just fasting for Allah's sake alone gives you the discipline and self-restraint you need, even without some of the bonus points that come with nightly tarawee, tahajjud, and completing a read...

Dear Khuddam, السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته Today is MLK Day, and I wished to say a few words. The themes of civil rights activism and racial equality are being remembered. The ancestors of our African Americans faced unimaginable cruelty for centuries. Many horrifying details of those stories remain untold. We don't celebrate people so much as we celebrate and honor the legacies which people commonly associate with them.  As such, MKA USA joins the rest of America today in honoring racial equality. Anyone who thinks they can honor racial integration by remembering it on one day of the year has missed the point. Our Holy Prophet (sa) taught us a message for all times.  In his final sermon he said: A white is no greater than a black, and an Arab is no greater than a non-Arab. It is a point of reflection for us all, especially for the "white" and the "Arab" of today's Jamaat. The Prophet (sa) continued by saying: The only...
