What is Sila?
“al-ṣila”, الصلة: (noun)
relationship, connection, link, tie, bond
The Sila Initiative is an educational effort that teaches Islam through the lens of relationships and connectedness.
In an increasingly individualistic world, Sila asks Muslims to consciously make their obligatory and praiseworthy relationships—with Allah, His Messenger salla Allahu ‘alayhi wa sallam, with one’s spouse, children, parents, relatives, teachers, neighbors, friends—a central part of their lived practice of Islam.
The most critical of all is one’s sila or connection to Allah, through which the proper maintenance of all other relationships can be understood.
