If you follow me on Instagram stories, you'll know just how much I have been loving this book. I've lost count of how many times I've shared it and for a good reason. If you haven't picked it up yet, please do kay. You'll love it too I promise. It's basically a compilation of letters written from a father to his son, and other young adults alike.
As you can see, the book is titled, Letter To A Young Muslim. Even though I'm not that young anymore, I can safely say that I am definitely young in my journey of exploring and learning what it means to live my life with this faith wholeheartedly and to let it empower me to be the best person I can be.
I actually had another two chapters left but I accidentally left it in the plane on my flght back from Dubai last week :( Will go pick it up again today or tomorrow because I NEED to finish this book for sure.
If you're living in KL, you can get it at Times, BSC or Kinokuniya, KLCC okay.
Let me know what you think once you've picked it up! :)
'You are correct in thinking that if someone is going to change the world for the better, then it is you. I believe in you entirely and I think you can. I just want you to be aware of a few things before you embark on a course that might lead you down the wrong path.
The binary world is not the only Islamic world you can live in. There is much more gray in between the black and the white and the ulema and other scholars present us. And the gray is where you develop intellectually and morally. The gray area of uncertainty and doubt as to what is right and what is wrong is where you discover your own right to think for yourself and to participate in the construction of our ethical world in practice. This is where I believe you will be able to serve this world and the next - in being a thinking, ethically directed young Muslim.'
