How do people view practicing Muslims these days? Outdated? Orthodox? Old-school? Of course!

I mean, just imagine! How can those people live without listening to music? I can’t even picture myself sitting alone and not plugging my earphones into my ears (to listen to the latest beats).

And then there’s the whole covering up issue.  Personally I believe that the only modesty is that of the gaze- don’t stare, that’s all. These Abaya-clad girls are usually looked more keenly upon.

Youth Club Blog

By Ayesha Nasrullah

Do you sometimes feel like you’re living the most miserable life in the world because you lack in that one thing all your friends have? Or maybe you’re the most disliked kid in school and not that oh-so-bright student; your parents don’t buy you fancy gadgets each month; don’t get to eat out that often; your mother cooks daal roti every other day; have to deal with annoying siblings, classmates, colleagues etc. And in the midst of this miasma of depression and deprivation you’re lacking SABR and SHUKAR- the two essentials of leading a contented life?
