ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS

Dear brothers.

Assalam-o-Alaikum

Admiring your efforts in spreading the teachings of Islam, an old man has a little reminder for you.

THE ACTIONS ALONE MAKE SENSE

Please remember that Islam’s being superior can only be useful to us when we ourselves attain superiority by acting in accordance with it; leading a life of disgrace and abjection, and remaining puffed up on the superiority of Islam is nothing but a stupidity.

It is true that action should spring from the soil of awareness but the awareness that does not transform into action is usually of no avail. An 0unce of action is said to be worth a ton of theory.

People want us to shoot the way we shout. The road to success passes through the world of action and the shortest answer is DOING. We must understand that preaching point is not a meeting point. A talk that does not end in any kind of action is of no value. After that we have debated so much, let each of us now demonstrate Islam by implementing Islamic Laws in the state of his OWN SELF.

Only that person can present Islam to the world who is, not only in the company of his friends but also in the big crowd of his foes, able to project his life in proof of his truthfulness and then no one dare to oppose him. This is the only right mechanism for uprising and bringing people close to Islam.

Many of us know what the exalted prophet Muhammad (my salute to him) SAID but a few bother to find out what he and his companions DID and lesser are those who are prepared to follow his foot-prints. What glory then we expect? We are losing simply because we do not have among us a role model of the faith we talk about; not even a statue of him.

May Allah show us the right path.
