January 28 Day of Action

Whoever among you witnesses injustice, let them change it with their hand. If they are not able, then let them change it with their words. If they are not able, then let them hate it in their heart but this is the weakest form of faith.

(Prophet Moḥammad, narrated by Abū Sa’id al-Khudrī, found in the collections of Muṣlim)

The above adīth is a call against idleness. Islamic faith demands of us to actively oppose that which is wrong, circumstances permitting. Therefore, as Muslims in solidarity with the IdleNoMore movement, we are implored to action.

This Monday, January 28 is a World Day of Action. There are a number of events happening around the world and a quick search of Google/Facebook should bring you to the one happening in your locality. If not, the IdleNoMore website has resources for anyone wishing to hold an event.

Let us put our hearts, words, and internet browsing to action this January 28, Insha Allah.
