With over 3 million Muslims and counting in N.America, the Muslim community, overcoming its 3rd generation, is now extremely diverse, and includes varying beliefs and practices, which are entrenched in the belief of The Shahadah – “There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is His Messenger”.
In just recent years, major immigration from Muslim majority countries to the West has led to a large generation of Western-born Muslims. This generation has given rise to a distinct identity of so-called “Western Muslims”, with its own unique cultural and linguistic aspects.
THE ISLAMIC PERSPECTIVE
Naseeha has a close and fundamental connection to the religion of Islam and was created with the intention of serving the growing population of Western-born Muslims and immigrants. Third world issues in a first world atmosphere is a popular trend amongst Muslim youths today. In fact, as cultural beliefs become more evident, the religion’s values often take the back seat and is often forgotten. Even more than often, parents guide the youth with their interpretation of what they learned growing up, as to be the concrete values of Islam, but what’s more surprising, is that its much farther than the truth!
Naseeha’s aim is to please the fundamental guidelines of Islam and support the success and wellness of Muslims here in the West and everywhere help is needed.
