LIGHT IS INTEGRAL FOR ALL TO SEE
It’s a pretty MONKEY BUSINESS to navigate your way in PARTIAL or TOTAL DARKNESS without direction or LIGHT. Equally it has never been any easy for a CONFUSED DRIVER to figure out the COORDINATES provided by his blind NAVIGATOR. Light is INTEGRAL for all to see and accurate NAVIGATIONAL INFORMATION is a valuable asset for any TRAVELLER to get to his DESTINATION without much STRAIN. The TORCH BEARERS are FEW but the FOLLOWERS must be MANY. The RING LEADER is always a TRUSTED FELLOW with relevant information, knowledge, trust and reliability. The followers are required by the LAW OF NATURE to be HUMBLE so as to arrive safely without MUCH DRAMA. Slightly above 2 BILLION human beings in the world have been ENDOWED to be the TORCH BEARERS and the remaining 5 billions MUST be SHOWN THE WAY with humility and TOLERANCE. A leader at times and infact MOST OF THE TIME, is a focal point of SCOLD. He is a MAGNET of all MINOR and MAJOR RESIDUAL THOUGHT. He is to show MATURITY LEADERSHIP and MANLINESS even in the middle of a RAGING STORM. He must STEER THE SHIP even if the OCCUPANTS are threatening to DISMEMBER his HEAD. He must be the SYMBOL and the EMBODIMENT OF SUCCESS. God Almighty gave us the LIGHT; The HOLY QURAN to guide man from his funny lifestyle to that of PIETY and SERVITUDE to his Lord God. GO OUT THERE and DISH out the MESSAGE. Show the world you DESERVED the OPPORTUNITY to LEAD. Show the world that YOU AREN’T MEAN with the MESSAGE. FLASH the LIGHT BRIGHT enough for those in DARKNESS to SEE THE PATH. Be a MUSLIM and NOTHING BUT a MUSLIM.
– وعن عثمان بن عفان رضي الله عنه قال: قال رسول الله صلى الله عليه وسلم : ”خيركم من تعلم القرآن وعلمه”
‘Uthman bin ‘Affan (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said, “The best amongst you is the one who learns the Qur’an and teaches it.”
