AccidentalMuslims.com is a movement or platform whereby we showcase leaders (current & future), in their field or career or life in general, to inspire us to live with purpose. And we just happened to be Muslims [People who submit to One God :)]
Coming from a family where most of us were born Muslim – there is this perception that we were Muslims by “accident” or by chance – This platform is here to remind you to live with intentionality, to have this drive to actualize your true potential in this life and to ultimately live with purpose (with faith).
We are living in a world full of negativity, sadness, war, racism and corruption. Our youth are bombarded with negative and unproductive media. How about an alternative? How about showing the world that Muslims are not that bad… we not evil, terrorists and we can harmoniously integrate with society. We actually quite normal like everyone else.
Noted psychiatrist and author George Vaillant recently wrote that the absence of faith is nihilism, not atheism. Faith means believing in something. Without faith of some kind, it isn’t possible to have a sense of meaning, direction, or purpose in life.
Without faith, it wouldn’t make sense to expect (or keep) commitments. Some say that, without faith, even science is impossible since science depends on a basic faith that ‘things lie together in a harmony which excludes mere arbitrariness.’
