Our Inspiration

As Muslims, are inspiration comes first and foremost from the most beautiful words of Allah (swt), the first words revealed to Prophet Muhammad (saws) on Mount Thawr:

“Read in the name of your Lord who created,

Who created mankind out of a drop of congealed blood

Read and your Lord is most generous

He who taught the use of the pen,

Who taught men that which he did not know”

These words are powerful and incredibly relevant for us as Muslims today. Allah (swt) informs us in these verses that knowledge is paramount, and that it is our ability to learn that distinguishes us from the rest of creation. At the same time this gives us an immense responsibility, to carry forth the Deen to the best of our knowledge and defend it from doubt and misrepresentation.

 

Another sources of inspiration for us is where Allah (swt) says in Surah Imran verse 110:

“Oh you who believe, you are the best of peoples ever raised up for mankind; you enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and belive in Allah”

This is not a verse of information, but rather one of instruction; that to be the best community, we have to spread the message of Islam and stand for justice everywhere.
