Beautiful Child

I'm excited to share this new video by Muslim poet Shahroz. There's so much in today's society that makes us focus on physical beauty and popularity on social media which makes it hard to separate ourselves from that mentality. There's so much more value in focusing on what really matters like people's actions, personality and conduct and it's sometimes hard to remember that. This spoken word video hits home on a lot of those issues and is a great reminder to everyone to really think about what is valuable rather than superficial. The thing that stood out to me most is that he includes issues relevant to both men and women. It's so common to hear criticism for Muslim women in regards to their conduct and Hijab as we complain about Muslim men having a double standard, but this video hit home with issues related to both genders. If sharing this video can open the eyes of just one person and help them change their conduct for the better, then I'm happy with that. Make sure you like and share the video so we can work together to shift the shallow focus that current society has instilled in our minds, and really embrace what is actually important.
