Top Twenty Posts

Islamic Sunrays top ten posts

As-salamu alaykum dear readers,

I’ve been writing on this website for close to a year now, and I wanted to point my newer readers to some of my favorite posts. These are not the necessarily the most popular posts, but my personal favorites.

(Yes, the image says “Top 10.” But I couldn’t pick only ten, sorry!)

These are articles that took the most courage for me to write, or that represent the best expression of the message that I’m trying to present. That message is one of hope and inspiration, Islam as a positive force for change in the world, courage in pursuing our dreams, and taking personal responsibility for our mistakes, successes, and lives as a whole.

1. Agents of hope, agents of despair

2. No one else can define your reality

3. Life is hard, but the sun still shines

4. Drop and drop makes an inundation

5. Remembering a friend who died badly, and moving beyond blame

6. Islamic meditation for relaxation and spiritual comfort

7. Five minutes of health

8. When times are hard, and you’ve fallen down

9. Faith, love and kindness:  secret weapons to change the world

10. A book is a garden

11. Allah and His Messenger are lights in the darkness

12. The hidden blessings of illness and hardship

13. “Muslim” – what that word means to me

14. Tell the truth and watch your relationships shine

15. Never despair: how a dying friend inspired me

16. You are perfectly created

17. Allah knows every fallen leaf, and He knows you

18. Be true, and be you

19. Try to count Allah’s blessings in your life

20. Let go of anger and replace it with forgiveness
