Great inspirational story by Imam Zaid Shakir

As'Salaam Alaikum,


A few weeks ago I had the honor to be in the company of Sr. Dian Alyan of GiveLight Foundation.


After tragically losing 40 relatives in the deadly Asia tsunami of 2004, she gave up a highly successful career as an executive at Procter & Gamble and founded the GiveLight Foundation to create a home to and provide long term education for the orphans from this disaster.


Since that time, GiveLight has expanded to many other countries, such as Pakistan, Afghanistan, Haiti, Cambodia, Sri Lanka, etc., supporting and enhancing the lives of orphans.


"The tsunami of 2004 changed my life forever and I believe it was my destiny that Allah swt has written for me.  He designed my life for a better purpose and the path I had chosen turned from running global brands to running global homes for orphans" Dian Alyan

How Do We Navigate these Turbulent Times ?!

How do we combat racism , bigotry and Islamophobia ? 


" No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite. " Nelson Mandela


Dr. Bilal Philips: ( Muslim Scholar ) 

" Show respect even to people who don't deserve it; not as a reflection of their character, but as a reflection of yours. " 


The Quran states:

“O mankind, We have created you all from a single (pair of a) male and female and made you nations and tribes so that you get to know one another; verily, the noblest of you in the sight of God is the one who is most mindful of Him. God is All-Knowing, All-Aware.” Quran: 49:13


Let us be a voice for peace , let us always remain united against racism and bigotry. 


all humans descend from Adam and Eve. In that sense, we are all essentially brothers and sisters. Our differing colours and diversity is not there to cause division but as a method of recognising one another. Such traits do not elevate a person’s status but rather our status with God is based on our level of piety and righteousness. In a further verse from the Qur’an:

"And amongst his signs is the creation of heaven and the earth, and the diversity of your language and colours; Verily, in these are signs for those who have knowledge."

The Qur’an, Chapter 30, Verse 22 know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.


The Quran states:

“O mankind, We have created you all from a single (pair of a) male and female and made you nations and tribes so that you get to know one another; verily, the noblest of you in the sight of God is the one who is most mindful of Him. God is All-Knowing, All-Aware.” Quran: 49:13
