As The Story Goes

24 Mar

Amen to Brother Harlon!! I’ve been listening to Affirming Inspiration & Uplifting videos on YouTube and downloading spiritual podcasts to my devices. While I was on vacation I went with my Japanese friend to her Buddhist Temple and I’m making an effort to really observe Lent this year in terms of allowing myself to “Just Be.”

A Patient Voice

The stories we tell about ourselves and our lives either empower or disempower us.

Affirm your narrative by basing it on the nobility of your truths and not on distorted memories, past regrets or current doubts.

We have agency. We don’t have to be victims. We can start writing a new script for the next part of our lives where the choices we make create a beautiful storyline.

Put your Faith in God.


Four poisons of the heart: 1. Unnecessary talking. 2. Unrestrained glances. 3. Too much food. 4. Keeping bad company.

Kalbin zehiri dört şeydir; 1. Gereksiz konuşmalar. 2. Gereksiz bakışlar. 3. Gereksiz yemeler. 4. Gereksiz birliktelikler.

| Ibn Al-Qayyim al-Jawziyaa

May Allah protect us from all these evils and keep us steadfast in remembering Him in ease and adversity.

Kaepernick is putting his money, and power, where his mouth is

Former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick continues to make philanthropic waves after securing a way to provide relief to the people of Somalia. After joining a Twitter campaign beseeching Turkish Airlines to send a cargo plane with aid, the former quarterback announced on Twitter Friday that he had secured one from the airline to bring supplies to the East African nation.

Turkish Airlines is one of the few that travel to Somalia, and the flight is expected to take place March 27.

The GoFundMe page’s goal is $1 million, a number it quickly surpassed in 24 hours.

“This is a victory for the people, this is a victory for the people of Somalia,” said Kaepernick. “It was done out of love, out of respect for these people. We wanted…

What is Nurturing Thursday, you ask?

Think about it … In our amazing but highly competitive and aggressive society:

  • How many of us truly feel good about ourselves?
  • How often do we extend to ourselves … the same courtesies, considerations, nurturing, forgiveness and understanding we bestow a loved one, a friend, or even a stranger?

With the ongoing intention to accept myself with an open heart rather than label myself as “good” or “bad” OR a “success” or “failure” … I challenge myself, and I challenge YOU to  treat ourselves with the…

Muslim Charities Are Helping To Raise Money for Burned Black Churches In The US*

By Louis Doré

Eight black churches have been burned down since the Charleston shootings, and Muslim charities have succeeded in their goal to raise $20,000 in an effort to rebuild them.

At the time of writing the project, launched last Thursday, has raised $21,688 (£14,000) from 495 contributors, making the mean donation in the region of $44.

A statement on the fundraising page said:

All houses of worship are sanctuaries, a place where all should feel safe, a place we can seek refuge when the world is too much to bear.

We are calling on you to help add our support to faith communities across the country pooling their resources to rebuild these churches.

American Muslims Raise Over $190,000 For San Bernardino Victims*

By Vandita

While Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump responded to the San Bernardino shooting by calling for a complete ban on Muslims entering the United States, a group of American Muslims set up a fundraising campaign for the victims’ families – hoping to respond to “evil with good”.

California-based neurologist and president of MiNDS Network Faisal Qazi along with Tarek El-Messidi, founder of the Muslim non-profit CelebrateMercy, set up a crowd funding campaign – Muslims United for San Bernardino – on LaunchGood, a Muslim-oriented crowd funding website, on December 3 to ease the financial burden on grieving families a day after 3 attackers went on a shooting spree at the Inland Regional Medical center in San Bernardino, California, and gunned down 14 people.

The initial goal of the united American Muslim campaign was to raise $50,000; so far, more…
