  1. Salaam, can you post some articles on the Quran and how it has the treatment for the problems of our current affairs, if only we Muslims would go back to its proper teachings.
    Please can you do summaries of stories and themes of the Quran, and to encourage Muslims to be better members of our society as most non Muslims perceive us to be angry, non sharing, non caring people of the community.
    Please can you show more articles about various UK Muslims that are good role models for our youth of today.
    There is a good video on Shame by Nouman Ali Khan, can you please do more articles on how we can teach the youth today on etiquettes dealing with the opposite gender. I include all writers on islam21C to bring up these subjects please.
    Jazakhallah khair Shaikh
