Bismillah Ir-Rahman, Ir-Raheem. I begin with ALLAH's auspiciousness,whose Name is the Best among all the names. All Revences, All Sanctities and All Worships are due to ALLAH alone. Ashahadu An Laa illaaha illal llahu Wa Ash Hadu Anna Muhammadan Abdu Hu Wa Rasooluhu ''I bear witness that there is no deity but Allah who is without partner, and I bear witness that Muhammad (Peace be upon Him) is the Rasool.'' "O ALLAH, Shower Your Peace come upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as you have brought peace to Ibrahim and his family. Truly, You are Praiseworthy and Glorious. O Allah, Shower your blessing upon Muhammad and the family of Muhammad, as you have blessed Ibrahim and his family. Truly, You are Praiseworthy and Glorious". I am Satisfied with ALLAH as My Rabb and Cherisher, I am Satisfied With Islam as My Din(religion) and I am satisfied with Muhammad as a Rasulallah (Messenger)sallallahu alaihi was salam) I seek Protection with ALLAH! With the Glorious and Noble Face of ALLAH! With the Complete and Perfect words of ALLAH! With the Exalted Attributes of ALLAH! From the Punishment of Hell; From chastisement in the Grave; From the Trial of Life and Death; From the Mischief of the dajjal. There is no power nor strength with (anyone) save Allah. ALLAH is Good and Only accept that which is Good. ALLAH is the Truth and only accept that which True. ALLAH is Pure and only accept that which is Pure. Ya ALLAH! ALL the praises are for You,You are the Holder of the Heavens and the Earth, And whatever is in them. Ya ALLAH! All praises are for You; You are are the Substaner of the Heavens and the Earth And whatever is in them. Ya ALLAH! All the praises are for you; You have the Possession of the Heavens and the Earth and whatever is in them. Ya ALLAH! All the praises are for You; You are Light(Nur) of the Heavens and Earth And whatever is in them. Ya ALLAH! All praises are for You; You are the King of the Heavens and the Earth And whatever is in them. Ya ALLAH! All praises are for You; You are the Truth and Your Promise is the Truth, And Your word is the Truth and the Meeting with You is true, And Parardise is True And Hell is true and All the Prophets(peace be upon them) are true; And Muhammad Rasulallah(sallallahu alayhi wa salam) is true,And the Day of Resurrection is True. Ya ALLAH! You have promise and Your promise is the truth,Ya ALLAH! You have promise and Your words is the truth, Ya ALLAH! You have promise and You are the Truth!---------- Bismillah Ir-Rahman, Ir-Raheem. -- Our Rasulallah(sallallahu alayhi wa salam)

himself serves as a paramount example for mankind, in his ability to bring about a complete social transformation of the human condition from ignorance to enlightenment as a Nabi (prophet) of ALLAH. Today, the Muslim world desperately needs a Mujaddid (one who brings "renewal, revive to the Din and restoring it to its pristine purity ) A Quranic and Sunnah inspire visionary leadership that would be an inspiration to the Hearts of the Muslim people. Abu Hurairah narrated that Muhammad Rasulallah(sallallahu alayhi wa salam)said:
Allah will raise for this community at the end of every hundred years the one who will renovate its religion for it.
Leadership With the truthfulness, the integrity and the honesty of Abu Bakr al-Siddiq(Radi Allahu Ánhu). Leadership with the justice of Umar ibn khattab Al-Faruq(Radi Allahu Ánhu) ("the one who distinguishes between right and wrong"). Leadership with the kindness and generosity of Uthman ibn Affan(Radi Allahu Ánhu). And Leadership with the courage and contentment of Ali(Radi Allahu Anhu)These are the true beacons of guidance! And a Leadership with the Love for Rasulallah(Sallallahu alayhi wa salam) that the Sahabah had! This kind of Leadership would take us in to the Golden Age of Islam! And to help to save this Ummah from the unfolding disasters.

One root of many evils today involves the moral decay in the Muslim world, and within this Ummah there cannot be a better catalyst of changing the human condition and progress for the human being than dedicated and courageous people of faith. Many key region of the Muslim world share alarming resemblance to the pre-Islamic period of jahiliyyah, with blind conformity to medieval and incorrect cultural traditions that do not accurately reflect at all Islam as well as false indoctrination and lack of exercise of human intellect. In the jahiliyyah period, unconditional tribal and ethnic loyalties often defied reason and ethics, helping to precipitate violence and hatred as well as shameful and counterproductive struggle within groups and nations. Today, symptoms of a much deeper crisis of the hearts and souls penetrates many Muslim-majority societies around, including but not limited to: rampant corruption and mismanagement, turmoil and violence reaching great height -A look around us at this very moment shows what the regression of the so call civilized world into Barbari and savage behavior or state. The value of human life surpasses all other values. With no real balance of power to help sustain healthy civilizational life ,With No real legitimate and accountability in governments which consequently creates, a serious support system deficiencies leading to illiteracy, poverty and degradation and degeneration of the human condition. We are busy pointing our fingers at the faults of others, but we fail to mind our own failures — and we are failing ourselves in a big way. It is long overdue that a group of faith leaders rise up to address these moral crises among Muslims of the world in a comprehensive manner, helping to move them in the right direction towards a better future. Progress---Progress for the human being, as noted before, signifies a movement forward; but it tells us nothing about the direction of this movement. Is it uphill or downhill? Is it an ascent or a descent? Is it a lifting of the human Spirit or a fall from Grace? There are many things that march progressively forward. Even cancer is progressive. What I am saying is: How do we know if this so call progress is good for us the Muslim world and by what standard is it measured? Do we measured progress by sacrificing your family life or by sacrificing our dignity as men or as human beings? We the Ummah measured life and progress by light of the Quran and the Sunnah of Rasulallah(sallallahu alayhi wa salam), this is our measuring rod! We have no other. Not all of this so call progress is good for the human being or for the Muslim world! Islam is our way of life not these western man made laws that one day will fall apart.

Even the point of how far we’ve advanced in terms of science and technology is something of a red herring when evaluating the idea of changing the human condition and progress for the human being. The Qur’an relates a number of narratives about former Civilizations and their ‘technological’ achievements of the day. Yet when put side by side with their stubbornness and heedlessness of the divine Reality, such progress is seen for what it really is: folly! Delusion and civilizational arrogance and ignorance. Says the Qur’an: Have they not travelled in the earth and seen the end of those before them. They were stronger than they in power, and they dug the earth and built upon it more than they have built. Their Messengers came to them with clear proofs. ALLAH wronged them not, but they wronged themselves. Evil was the end of those who dealt in evil, because they denied the signs of ALLAH and mocked them.--- The Early Muslim were at pains to instill in us the vital Quranic lesson, that material progress – ‘digging the earth and building upon it’ – can never be the measure of any true or meaningful success. Islamic sources relate to us that in 28A.H. the first Muslim navel expedition was sent against the Mediterranean island of Cyprus, which was under the control of a Byzantine Empire(Roman empire)now in its twilight years. The Muslim army was quick to overrun the small Byzantine garrison and the Cypriots were soon paying tribute to the Muslims. On seeing the ease with which the people of this once powerful empire lay defeated and subdued, and its people wept and were in great sadness and humiliation. the famous Sahabah of Rasulallah(sallallahu alayhi wa salam), Abu’l-Darda, began to weep. On being asked why he wept on the day ALLAH had granted victory to Islam and the Muslims, he answered: “Woe to you! How insignificant Creation (the People) become in the sight of ALLAH when they neglect His commands. Here is a nation that was once mighty and strong, and had dominion. But they abandoned the commands of ALLAH, so look what’s become of them.” In looking at the contemporary world’s unrelenting drive for progress, the believers need not agree with all the popular assumptions of the age. Civilizational greatness and technological progress for their own sake, as can be seen, count for very little in the Quranic scheme of things. We are not to be mesmerised by “the barefooted, scantly clad, destitute herdsmen competing in constructing lofty buildings,” as Rasulallah(sallallahu alayhi wa salam), forewarned. Digging the earth is one thing; burying the path to the soul’s salvation is another thing altogether. Hence let us pose that all-important question again: How should changing the human condition and progress for the human be appraised? “For Muslims,” “there can be only one test by which to assess changing the human condition and progress for the human being . Does it promote piety – awareness of the divine presence – or diminish it? Does it lead to an increasing number of men and women to the gates of Paradise or does it encourage them to stray from ALLAH’s path? Does it reinforce the divinely revealed Law or does it blur the distinction between what is commanded and what is forbidden? There are, of course, other considerations but they must take a lower place in a fixed order of priorities. An increase in life expectancy is, obviously, a good thing, but it is worthless if these additional years do not lead to an increasing awareness of the divine Reality which we are soon to meet and face! There is nothing inherently wrong with the comforts provided by the modern world, better hygiene, better drainage, more convenient means of transport, but these count for nothing if these things encourages us to forget our origin and our end as Muslims or cause us to become dehumanized living in these concrete Jungles.

Progress just give mankind more options, abilities and responsibilities.
When a child is learning to walk, he often fall down.
If parents will always prevent him from trying, he will never learn. Instead, they are supporting him to help him to learn how to walk.
