In a world of great stress, time pressures, Islamophobia, and confusion within our communities, it can be difficult to stay grounded and live the life of a true Muslim. We’re told, many times, that Islam is a path of moderation – “a middle way” that leads to success in both this life and the next.
But how does one juggle the ever-increasing demands of modern life while still maintaining a strong Islamic identity and a deep relationship with Allah?
If you’re looking for the answers, and feel like you need to be spiritually revived, get ready for the MSA of the Cape’s latest Reviving the Islamic Spirit (RIS) convention, coming to Cape Town this May.
The 2011 edition, under the theme “Striking the Balance,” will cover topics dealing with various aspects of Muslim life – such as balance and moderation; cultivating taqwa; living by the sunnah; interfaith relations; and marriage. Speakers include a mix of young and old, with scholars like Mufti Ismail Menk, Shaykh Navaid Aziz, Shaykh Bilal Ismail, and Dr Fadel Soliman, among others.
