Global Dawah Day: Muslims win at the World Cup (Video)


The 20th Football World Cup kicked off in Brazil on Thursday 12th June. For an entire month the world’s eyes were fixed on this event, becoming the topic of impassioned discussions at home, school, work, restaurants on street corners, well…everywhere you can think of!

Anything and everything football is IN during this period – even those that don’t like football will get caught up in the frenzy! From special offers for pizzas, to decidedly bizarre advertising, everyone will be riding the wave.

But, with all the euphoria and joy, there will also be sorrow as teams exit the tournament and people return to the humdrum routine of daily life. Maybe many considering that there must be more to life than this…

Imagine if a small seed could be planted in the minds of the masses, which in time could grow…prompting them to consider their true goal in life.


To coincide with the the Brazil football World Cup, iERA has launched the first ever Global Dawah Campaign – ‘What’s Your Goal?’. This campaign aims to motivate Muslims to get involved in sharing the message of Islam in a warm and friendly way to inshaa’Allah plant the seeds, prompting people to ponder their true purpose in life.

The Prophet Muhammad ﷺ said:

“Whoever guides (another) to a good deed will get a reward similar to the one who performs it.”

(Sahih Muslim)

Tips for Growing Your Own Greens

Although at first glance one might see enhanced productivity simply through outsourcing all growth, is there not a form of deen-centered productivity that takes root when we return to the soil? 


Everything is almost always available. For those of us living in the industrialized world, our homes are a stone’s throw from major retailers, where goods of all season are almost always available. And for those who do not back up to shopping malls, the Internet malls are merely a click away. I recall the Internet boom in a major urban center in the mid-1990s when we could get nearly anything delivered, day or night. But, I also recall resisting such immediate consumption.

What about growing your own cherry tomatoes? And what about the joy of nurturing them, from start to delectable (small) finish, and then sharing the harvest? As ‘convenience’ and ‘choice’ become the hallmarks of our era, is it not time to reflect on what we may be giving up by our own consumptive patterns? How may we integrate different practices, for our own mental and physical well-being and ultimately the well-being of our planet, not to mention our own spiritual growth? What about reconsidering embedded notions of productivity (e.g. units processed per minute) and imagine instead our productivity as a function of how connected we are to our Creator (glorified and exalted be He), all while keeping our feet firmly rooted in the ground? Gardening has real power here, and the following tips will, In sha Allah, inspire you to grow your own greens.
