“Divide you Not”: Transforming Divisions into Decisions March 23, 2006

Filed under: Uncategorized — musaafir @ 11:01 am

“And hold fast, all together, by the rope which God (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves…for you were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace, you became brethren…That you may be guided.” (3:103)

Speakers: Mohamed Magid, Mohamed Sheibani, Ahmed Sidky, and Asma Mirza

Mohamed Magid:

(He asked us to shake hands with the person next to us and introduce ourselves) Just by shaking hands, you don’t know one another. It takes more effort than that.

The Sahabah* said salaam to every person they came across and if a pillar were to divide them from that person, they would repeat their salaam. What we have to learn from that is the necessity for us to be united and get to know other people.

Good friends are like a strong rope. When you are in trouble or are lacking iman, they will pull you up. You should join together with those of good character to do good.

The other speakers spoke about MSAs and how we have so many colleges and universities lacking MSAs and that we need to network and connect with one another. We should tell each other about our events, host events together, fund raise together, etc.

    wow! you updated a lot. I have to be reading voraciously now! Thanks for all the great lecture notes and stuff.
    and 17 colleges!!! DANG! Girl you must be a genius and mashaAllah superbly driven. If you are curious, I only applied to ONE college, of course a local public college: I love non-competitive atmosphere. LOL
