Young Muslims need to know the reality of Islam from it’s pure source,
away from the propaganda of the media and political groups and the
misleading so-called Islamic groups. It is very important to focus on
the source of the knowledge about Islam.
All the differences between Muslims since 1400 years till today are
based on the differences in the source and from whom to take the real
meanings of the Holy Qur’an and the authentic Sunnah of the Holy
Prophet (SAWA). The Holy Prophet (SAWA) did not leave the Ummah
without clearly informing them about the source of the Islamic
knowledge after him. He orderd all Muslims to keep on following the Thaqalain. the two most important leaders that must be
followed, the Holy Quran and the Ahlul Bayt (AS) and he
stated that these 2 will never be apart from one and another.
Not only Muslim youth but also every human being who wants to know the real
Islam has no choice but to take it from the most authentic and the
most knowledgeable source of teachings of the Holy Prophet (SAWA) who
are the Ahlul Bayt (AS) who have the knowledge from the Holy Prophet
(SAWA) and the real meaning (Tafseer) of the Holy Qur’an.
After establishing this fact of the most authentic source of
knowledge, young Muslims need to know about the basics of the faith
which can be found in many books and websites like www.al-islam.org
It is also required to know about the Islamic morals and spiritual
elevation which can be found in books like Jaami’ al-Sa’adaat. It is
also very important to read the Holy Qur’an and the life and sayings
of the Holy Prophet (SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS).
It is very useful to recite the supplications of the Holy Prophet
(SAWA) and Ahlul Bayt (AS) e.g. dua Kumayl and Saheefa al-Sajjadiyah
A brief knowledge about the history of Muslims is very useful e.g.
Kitab al-Irshad by al-Shaykh al-Mufeed.
These are the starting points which can lead to further steps in
gaining more useful knowledge.
