Shaykh Habib Ali al-Jifri on the Community’s Responsibility to Women

“Enough of this talk that it was Islam who gave women their rights and it was Islam that freed women. Yes, Islam did that. The question isn't whether Islam did that or not. The question that should be asked is why we're not implementing Islam in that regard? Why do we just leave it as sermons?”

Spotlight on Sister Nur Moebius

Spotlight on Sister Nur MoebiusConnecticut sister Chaplain Nur Moebius is a domestic violence survivor as well as a mom whose young two year old son, Junaid, died of cancer recently. Sister Nur was homeless due to domestic violence before arriving at a local community shelter during the time of her son’s diagnosis and treatment. After his death, she organized a memorial to honor his memory as well as to teach others about Islam. She credits her strength and successes to the help of Allah, and continues to speak out against domestic violence. The support of her mentor, Dr. Ingrid Matson at the Hartford Seminary, has also helped Chaplain Nur to find the strength to continue to educate her community that domestic violence has no place in Islam. Please pray for this strong survivor.
