When You Work for Allah:
And Print Literature in His Name! [Quote – 743]

When you say you Work for Allah, these should be some of your standards:

When we edit our work for printing, let us say:

If it is not good enough for a textbook for Harvard and Princeton and Stanford, it is not good enough for us. 

Even though for every dollar they have, we have only $.0000000000000000000000000? 

And for every 10,000 qualified people they have, we have only .0000000000000000? human element. 

And compared to their levels of training, education, sophistication and skills, we have only .00000000000000000000000?

But we have Allah’s Book in our hands where all perfection resides. 

There is no other book on earth that manifested itself on earth with the claim of Laa Rayiba Feeh!

Meaning: No imperfection, or blemish, or shortcoming, or deficiency, or doubt could be associated with it.

Or placed at its door.

And anything that comes out of that Book, or speaks in its name, or using That BookDhaalikal Kitaab — as a reference in any shape or form, that work must strain every sinew to attain the highest level of perfection that is possible for a human to reach on this earth — in this world of imperfection.

That Book — Dhaalikal Kitaab — was perfect when it showed up in this world in a barren desert, among an illiterate people, at the hands of an illiterate man, at a time when there were not too many books, not too many libraries, no printing presses, and not too many people knew how to read or write. 

Nor were all human beings even allowed to do that — learn to read and write I mean.

At such a time, in such a place, among such a people, That Book – Dhaalikal Kitaab — was a Model of Perfection in every way.

Today, when education is common, universities are everywhere, and computers rule the world, and people tote them around in the palm of their hands, there should be no reason for anyone to give That Book — Dhaalikal Kitaab — or to anything that emerges from That Book or is associated with That Book anything less than our 10,0000 Percent. 

And then ask: Is this really good enough? Did we really do a good job?
