[Now or Never: The YOLO Fallacy] – Imam Siraj Wahhaj (Video)
A frighteningly common misconception to be found among the Ummah today, in particular the Muslim Youth, is the YOLO Fallacy. Many of us have been led believe that to live life to the fullest, we may indulge in activities that supposedly bring pleasure even if they are in direct conflict with our Deen. Destructive thoughts and the implementation of them is seen as a socially acceptable way to act since “You Only Live Once” and you must have have fun regardless of the consequences. With this in mind, we often tend to leave off practicing Islam to when we’re older. Just one little problem- We don’t know if old age is guaranteed since death does not discriminate elders over the youth.

Imam Siraj Wahhaj: “Things Ain’t Good in the ‘Hood” (Video)
United For Change 3rd Annual Conference: “United We Stand: One Nation, One Destiny”. In his bestselling book, Ill Fares the Land, Tony Judt passionately argues that individualism, egoism, greed and the politics they gave birth to are undermining the very basis of community, equality and social justice. In the ensuing social carnage no one suffers more than the poor and disenfranchised members of our society. What are the political foundations of community, equality and social justice? Can America be a great nation if it tramples on its poor and downtrodden? How can more affluent Muslims display more compassion for the less fortunate members of our society both Muslims and others? These are some of the questions Imam Siraj Wahhaj answers in this lecture.
