Commitment with Understanding
There is a great deal of gloom and despondency among Muslims. This is
in spite of the fact that we have a tremendous human potential of some 1.3
billion and we are are leading the world in growth - especially in
productive youngsters. We are also blessed with an abundance of natural
resources such as petroleum and natural gas, while inhabiting the most
strategic areas of the globe. Place these factors in the context of
Islam's uniquely transcendental message, alongside the testimonials of a
glorious historic past, and you have all the ingredients for a respectable
place in the comity of nations. Given this, especially in the
post-colonial era, we should have taken off on sound footing, building a
grand society on our traditional Islamic principles of justice, freedom,
peace and prosperity. Yet we did not. And our masses are among the world's
poor, hungry, and illiterate. With over a 60 percent illiteracy rate, our
people are held backwards and have few avenues of gainful productivity. As
a result, nearly 40 percent live below the poverty line (less than $2.00 a
day). And while our masses continue to suffer, corrupt autocratic
dictators plunder our resources and loot the public treasury. And when
they finally leave thrones of power, billions are taken with them to be
stashed in foreign banks.
However, it is important for those involved in
this endeavor that the information imparted be relevant to our crucial
understanding of Islam, offering Islamic solutions to the exigencies of
our times, while adopting modern means for their usefulness
