“You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah.” (The Noble Quran 3:110)
You’ve been chosen…We all have. As Muslims, we have been given much responsibility. Do you know, the fact that we are sitting at our computers and reading this page makes us a part of an elite percentage across this world? Can we deny this blessing? If you look to the 1.6 billion
(as of 2010) Muslims on this planet, this percentage would be even lower. We must unite and bring change within ourselves, so that we are ready and able to change the world.
“Believers are but brothers so set things right between your brothers and fear God so that you may find mercy.” (The Noble Quran 49:10)
We must all pledge to dedicate a short time each day to read the Noble Quran and to study Sunnah from the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). To really find out the core of what is being revealed and to study whether our lives sync with that of a Muslim according to Allah and the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). We must pledge to help spread the seeds of our own harvest and help others who may not be as privileged or aware as we to find the right path.
“Reason well, therefore, O people, and understand words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the Quran and my example, the Sunnah, and if you follow these you will never go astray.” (Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) Last Sermon)
By helping one another through this page / site, not only will we increase our own knowledge and understanding, but also deliver the true message of Islam. We can begin by having our profile picture as the The Chosen One and placing a fitting Quran or Hadith verse on our cover photographs. This will not only serve as a reminder for us all, but also help spread the message to all who see it.
“And let there be [arising] from you a nation inviting to [all that is] good, enjoining what is right and forbidding what is wrong, and those will be the successful.” (The Noble Quran 3:104)
This is our call and we must answer it. We must put aside all our differences to unite and become the leaders that we were chosen to be. Allah has given us this one chance to prove our love and devotion to Him. Let’s show Him and the world that we are together, we are determined and we will no longer be oppressed by our own reservations!
“We were the most humiliated people on earth and Allah gave us honor through Islam. If we ever seek honor through anything else, Allah will humiliate us again.”
Hadrat ‘Umar (RA)
