Editors’ Letter:

Salam,

Growth doesn’t happen over one night, but over many.

As we delve into the scorching heat of summer, the holy month of Ramadan awaits us.

With another opportunity to spiritually grow closer to Allah (SWT) and our communities, we should strive to better ourselves and truly glance into our souls.

Don’t be afraid to ask yourself “Who am I?” What better time to figure things out about yourself than in Ramadan. Whether you are contemplating a career path but are hesitant like artist Nadia Janjua (on the cover and on pg. 20) once was, or if you’re ready to lead a healthier lifestyle (p. 26), take the time and contemplate.

Instead of watching Netflix all day and scrolling through mouth-watering pictures of food on Pinterest, read a book (pg. 58) or spend time with family and friends. Cook iftar together and perhaps try Noori Ali’s Lemon Bar recipe (pg. 34). These simple actions and more can help your kids learn to love Islam (pg. 14).

As Dr. Zainab Alwani discusses in her Deen & Spirituality piece (pg. 6), make this Ramadan a month of change.

Keep faith,

Omama Altaleb & Rawan Elbaba
