Managing the silly season

Q: I am a young lad matriculating from an Islamic school and would like your advise. I try my very best to live life like a good Muslim. As best as possible I lower my gaze from strange women, i avoid music and places of sin like movies, discos and beaches on weekends.


Virtue of Making Salaam First: Hadhrat Abdullah ibn Mas’ood (Radhiallahu Anhu) relates that Rasulullah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) has said: “The one who makes salaam first is free from pride.” (Baihaqi – Shu’abul Imaan 6/433)
