Change Starts at Home
by Faisal Akhtar
The change needs to start at home first. Focus on yourself and your own Islam, then that of your family, then that of your community and then that of the world at large. I am not saying we shouldnt do whatever we can to help the suffering Muslims of this world. All I am saying is that once we focus on improving ourselves, we will become strong individuals as our Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) was. With that strength of Eman, we will be able to help our Brothers and Sisters all over the world with much more effectiveness than we can right now.
