The most important thing about our work is for people to understand clearly and fully who we are and what we do — and how we go about doing it.

For anyone to join us, to become part of us, and to help us with what we do, the most important thing is for them to be trained as much as they can be trained.

Without training, they will be square pegs in round holes.

And an essential part of that training for everyone is for them to read our writings — and to listen to our audio.

Sadly, or happily, we have no video, which, of course, is by design.

That is the theory and methodology of our work.

It is more important for us that people are properly trained in the theory and methodology of our work, that we consider to be the core of Islam, than for them to help us, to join us, to do our work, to do some favors for us, blindly or out of the charity of their hearts.

By the Grace of Almighty Allah, we depend on no one, and we need nothing from anyone. Even though we would love the whole world to be a part of us and of our work.

But all these people need to train themselves by continually reading our material and listening to what we have produced.

That is Lesson One of our work.

“What do we want? Simple!

We want every human being to have the best of everything – in this world as well as in the next world.

And we want that for all human beings, everywhere and for all time: Muslim as well as non-Muslim; male as well as female; old as well as young; White, Black as well as all other.

As a result, we want every human being to be the best human being they can be. And we want every human being to have the opportunity to know Islam, try Islam and be able to give Islam a chance in their life.

That is because Islam is all good; and because Islam is from God Almighty; and because Islam is not a concoction of human contriving, sacred or secular.

At the same time, we also want every Muslim – those who are already Muslim as well as those who from now on will become Muslim – to be the best human beings and the best Muslims they can be.

That is our most fervent wish; our most ardent prayer; and our most sincere and dedicated effort.

How can anyone possibly go wrong with something like that?” (Dr. Pasha)

The point is there is no mystery about Islam; Islam is as clear as daylight. What we need – what we often don’t have – is a clear understanding of it. And that is all I seek, aspire or endeavor to do: to enhance Muslim understanding on things, questions and issues Islamic, especially in the context of the times and place and culture in which we live in the West today – we of the Western Wing of the Muslim Ummah that have made the West our home…
