August Message

First of all, I apologize for not posting regularly in this blog lately. We are back to school and assignments never seem to finish. Anyway, I hope this short message will mean something to the respected visitors of this blog.

Our Ummah needs to unite, we all agree on this. So, let’s ask ourselves; how can we contribute to unity of our Muslim Ummah?

Basically, fulfilling this mission starts by uniting Muslims in our surrounding environment. This can be done if we achieve three important elements.

First of all, we should have the fundamental Islamic attributes required to uphold our integrity as Muslims.

Secondly, we must have the courage and motivation to work with others for the goodness of the Ummah.

Thirdly, we should feel the sufferings of our Muslim brothers and sisters around the world. It’s only when we feel their sufferings that we can help.

Last but not least, we must remember that Allah will not change a person until he changes himself. Therefore, let’s start working for unity within our very close surrounding environments.

May Allah shower all of you with His Mercy, wassalam.
