Get with a community My squad--where oh where would I be without them? I'm blessed with my Muslim Girl family, but also with the best of friends who keep my deen in check.  I have a few friends who make me a better Muslim just by being in their presence, and anytime I feel like I need to up my spirituality, I know they are a text, phone call, or coffee date away.
