New Project: Our End!

Alhamdulillah, just launched a new project. Most of my projects typically just rely on me to do everything or to work with a partner. But this one is different. Its what I like to call an Open Source Islamic Project where everyone can contribute something. I will be collecting stories written by Muslims regarding death–typically their own death, funerals and the afterlife. They will be collected at the Our End website.

I have found that there is nothing that is as powerful as remembering death. It was once said that if there was one topic that could be discussed in every Jummah khutbah and it would be enough, it is death. Now I know you are thinking that I don’t want to think about death. And that’s the whole point, to get you to think about death because the Muslims before us used to love death, whereas we don’t.

Really hoping to get some submissions for this! 😀

Subhana kallahumma wa bihamdik ash-haduana la illaha illa ant astaghfiruka wa atubu ilayk. Ameen.
