The global pandemic has effectively changed the world as we know it, but importantly it has brought a heightened awareness to the social issues that plague our societies. While we all hope to move away from lockdowns and extreme restrictions, what does the world we hope to step into look like? The world as we know it is being redefined and rebuilt, the status quo challenged and the fight for greater ideals like social and environmental justice continue.
Muslims in Canada witnessed the horrific attack that left four individuals - three generations - of a single Muslim family dead in the city of London, Ontario. The fallout from that tragedy ricocheted around the world and was a wakeup call to elected officials and decent law abiding citizens to become vigilante against a growing tide of hate-mongers. With hate staring us down, what are Muslims to do? How should they respond? Is an inclusive and truly plural society still possible or is that dream fading into oblivion? And more importantly, how should Muslims strike a balance between their private lives of worship and obedience to Allah and His Messenger and their engagements in civil society?
