Enlightened Generations

Freeing insightful Muslim humanitarians Click "About" below to find out more.

Enlightened Generations, is a new nonprofit association, based in Dallas, TX, that believes that our responsibilities, as Muslims, include being knowledgeable about and active in humanitarian causes around the world and trying our best to relieve misunderstandings of Islam by showing, not simply telling, the world that this way of life teaches both beauty of the heart and mind. Under our program students, starting at a young age, will: • realize the importance of the blessings they have in the opportunities they have been given, • become leaders who use these opportunities to become active in prevalent issues around the globe, • desire to learn and be active in causes fit to their own personalities and interests, • choose their careers in order to pursue their interests in particular humanitarian causes, • form connections with people, including the Ummah, around the globe, • and represent Islam in its correct form in order to counteract the negative images given to Islam. The founders of EG were motivated by four main issues facing the world and the Muslim community right now. OUR MOTIVATION: 1) If we look at the percentage of the population in the West that actively advocates for any particular cause (a number that is difficult to accurately measure but that is individually observed), we can conclude that the West isn't efficiently tapping into its best humanitarian resource: people blessed with opportunities. Imagine what we could accomplish if more of us recognized what we have to offer, and used that realization to promote and direct change in the global humanitarian community. 2) Within this small percentage of the Western population that is active in the humanitarian community, Muslims are a minority. Considering how much Islam stresses the importance of helping all types and kinds of people, we should and could be playing a much larger role in causes that are and are not directly related to the Muslim world. 3) Our generation is unfortunately self-oriented, and we can't say it's getting better with the generations after us. Enlightened Generations believes that this self-oriented attitude has kept much of our generation from pursuing knowledge that will not directly help us in our future careers. As a result, many people in their 20s and younger do not know much about different prevalent issues that are affecting millions around the world. 4) Islamophobia is growing, and already huge. Very few Muslims are standing up to stop negative images of Islam, and this may be because many of us feel overwhelmed by how much the media portrays us as a violent people. But let's remind ourselves that the Ummah's (community's) personal struggle changes with the time period, and for Muslims living in the 21st century, it is reclaiming our story from the media, and showing everyone that Islam is beautiful.

Mission: Enlightened Generations will work to expand youthful Muslim minds with knowledge and awareness of humanitarian issues. By connecting this awareness to Islam's teachings, service to the world, and to their interests and careers, the youth will gain greater desire to foster change in global dilemmas. In this process, Enlightened Generations will work to increase the Muslim presence in the public humanitarian community and thus, alleviate the growing misunderstandings between Muslims and non-Muslims.

[02/03/15]   MESSAGE TO ENLIGHTENED GENERATIONS' FOLLOWERS:
In my year off from school I started a nonprofit called Enlightened Generations. It was an extremely challenging and eye opening experience. Although I have not been able to work on it for 7 months, my passion for its goal, fostering activism in the Muslim youth, has only exponentially grown since then.

Many of my Facebook friends were part of this organization and/or
supporters of it. For that reason I feel the need to apologize for letting my dream of becoming a doctor get in the way of my responsibility in and passion towards the activist community.
Enlightened Generations has not been public for the past 7 months, but I have now started to work on it again in the background. For those of you who told me that they were excited for the future of EG, I want y'all to know that I have not given up. This is what I want to do with my life and for those of y'all who really know me, I NEVER GIVE UP ON MY PASSIONS. No matter what!

I make no excuses for why I have not been working on EG, because I pushed the previous volunteer employees of EG towards constant activism despite life's obstacles. I will push myself to do the same while in medical school. I will spend the next year making a 5 year plan for EG. I know this is a long time, but in the year that EG was up and alive I learned a lot of things about starting a movement, one of which was that you have to be patient and invest a lot of time into it. Rushing to put something together produces short-term results, not long-term ones.
I pray and hope that you all will continue to support and motivate me as you all once did. I, in return, promise to try my best to work towards a goal of Enlightening Generations of future activists.

[07/15/14]   Enlightened Generations are generations that actively inform themselves of global crises and take an active stand on the issue, getting out the information and finding solutions to the issue itself. If we want to foster Enlightened Generations in the Muslim youth, we have to be their role models first!

Salaam everyone! We're always saying Muslims need to help their brothers and sisters in Muslim countries. That we need to be more united. Well my best friend/sister/soulmate has spent the last 6-7 months in Morocco helping out a village in the High Atlas Mountains. She needs to raise $2000 and this is where you can check out what she is doing with that money and how you can do your part in helping our brothers and sisters who were not as lucky to have been born and/or raised in the West.

[01/20/14]   At the MLK Parade that went through a rough part of Dallas (the neighborhood near Fair Park) I couldn't help but wonder if Martin Luther King Jr. would have been happy seeing the condition of the African American people that live there and the area they live in... See it isn't enough simply marching in a parade, although it was a lot of fun. We should commemorate MLK by teaching our youth and ourselves how our societies still reek of structural racism. We should build our youth into social innovators and leaders who work towards fixing these issues for the long run.

Unleashed wants to do that! Insha'Allah with the community's help, we will be able to foster insightful Muslim youth who know about the world's issues and who work to alleviate these issues as an act of worship to Allah swt.
