Muslim youth growing up in the West face a variety of problems, issues and dilemma’s. Many deal with them by simply ‘going with the flow’ or by ‘following the crowd’. Often Muslims follow the youth in wider society despite the fact that they possess the true belief, Islam. The belief of Islam makes us different and worthy to be leaders of humanity rather than followers of people whose favourite pastime is getting drunk or high on a Friday night.

This book is a collection of articles relevant to Muslim youth in the West. It aims to provoke thinking to enable Muslim youth to realise their true identity as slaves of Allah ? and not slaves to pop stars,
sports personalities, movie celebrities or any human being.
