We need to face facts: Muslim involvement in drugs and the gangster lifestyle is increasing at an alarming rate in the West. Muslims are now heavily involved with the planting, harvesting, refinement, smuggling, and distribution of drugs within our communities. Rather than taking the Prophets and Companions as heroes, our youth look up to the drug traffikers and rap artists. In this lecture the speaker addresses some of the common problems that are prevalent in our communities such as drugs, guns and Rap music. One must always remember that being a practicing Muslim is not restricted to praying, fasting and going for Hajj. Rather, Islam is a complete way of life and has injunctions with regards to business, trade, marriage, divorce, inheritance and so on. Hence, one cannot be termed a practicing Muslim if one’s earnings are through unlawful means.
