"College Hangouts" at Rhodes College tackles the difference of gratitude and judgement in struggle

April 12, 2017

Memphis Islamic Center’s Youth Director Safi Khan and the Rhodes College Muslim Student Association hosted a college hangout titled “Balancing College and Faith,” on Wednesday. 


"With finals coming up, it was a timely reminder that I think all in attendance benefitted from immensely,” said Hamid Shirwany, a sophomore at Rhodes and president of the MSA.


Khan opened the discussion by noting the reality that life is full of struggles- anything worth pursuing will require effort and struggle.


However, Khan also pointed to the ayahs of the Qur’an and the traditions of the Prophet (PBUH) to show that Islam tells us how to deal with that struggle and how to use it to make us stronger people- stronger as students and stronger as Muslims.
