[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.

Every Soul Shall Taste It
By: Jinan Bastaki
“The eyes surely tear,
and the heart is surely in pain,
but (with my tongue) I will only say that which is pleasing to Allah,
and we are indeed sad at being separated from you, O Ibrahim.”
—Prophet Muhammad ﷺ (peace be upon him), upon losing his child Ibrahim at 2 years old
Al-Muhye, Al-Mumeet: The Life-Giver, the Life-Taker
These two names often come together, but I will be brief on al-Muhye, as I want to elaborate on it further in a separate article, and focus more on al-Mumeet here. These names are not mentioned in this exact form in the Qur’an, but their meaning is conveyed in numerous places. Allah subhanahu wa ta`ala(exalted is He) says:
“He gives life and causes death (yuhyee wa yumeet), and to Him you will be returned,” [Qur’an, 10:56]
Al-Ghazali explains these two names, stating that “none is the creator of life and death but God—may He be praised and exalted, and so there is no life-giver or slayer but God—Great and Glorious.”
Allah gives life to things that are dead. We all witness the death of nature around us; a seed—a lifeless thing—is planted and given nourishment, and grows into a tall sturdy tree that gives us flowers and fruits. Then in autumn, the leaves fall, and the trees stand inanimate through the winter. But come spring, the flowers bloom again. Indeed he is al-Muhye: He gives life. And perhaps the greatest manifestation is our own life: the growth of a human being, with a soul, from a sperm and an egg. Indeed, these are signs for people who reflect:
“He brings the living out of the dead and brings the dead out of the living and brings to life the earth after its lifelessness. And thus will you be brought out.” (Qur’an, 30:19)
