“And who is better in speech than the one who calls to Allah, does righteousness and says I am from the Muslims.”  (Surat Fussilat v. 33) 

Speech that is backed by conduct and fueled by identity is a powerful mechanism of positive change in a world that is hurting everywhere. 

Muslims should not just be present in fighting injustice but leading the way. Our challenge of injustice comes from a constant imperative in the Quran and sunnah and is nourished and sustained by Islamic tazkiyah principles.

He was already at the service of mankind…

His care and aid for his community was beyond question..

But with the message he ascended to being a Mercy to the Worlds..
How can we be a mercy to our worlds?
