What are the problems that Muslim youth face nowadays?


All perfect praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the worlds. I testify that there is none worthy of worship except Allaah, and that Muhammad, sallallaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, is His slave and messenger.


Unlike previous ages, Muslim youth of this age face many problems, which can be summarised as follows:

1-   Keen and quick endeavors from the enemies of Islam and their allies to spoil the Muslim youth using various methods and tools, such as facilitating the accessibility to drugs, intoxicants and porn movies and making adultery and fornication readily available.

2-   Busying the youth with entertainment and wasting their time uselessly.

3-   Distorting sound educational curricula and replacing it with destructive ideas and principles that are absolutely irrelevant to Islam, and that even describing it as an uncivilized, terrorizing religion.

4-   Tracking down upright young men who have the zeal for Da'wah, Islamic reform, and reviving the obligation of doing good deeds and forbidding bad deeds, and limiting their efforts and imprisoning in some cases.

We ask Allaah to grant glory to Muslims; He is The Almighty and The Omnipotent.

Allaah Knows best.
