I have a vision. It’s statement is ‘Ignited Communities that Benefit Humanity’
I know a reality. It states that my time in this world is limited to only a few years.
I have an understanding. It teaches me to be appreciative and supportive of my fellow propagators of Islam, the wonderful organizations and institutes and all the amazing speech and action the world witnesses that is dedicated towards making my vision a reality…
You see, the legacy of my beloved Messenger (Sallallahu alayhi wa sallam) was not transferred to any one man or women, but transferred to an entire ummah (nation).
When I ponder over this pearl I realize that I should not be jealous of my fellow du’aat and fellow Muslim organizations. I realize that my endeavour should never be about calling to myself or my group or foundation. I realize that I should highlight the good work of all the community igniters and defend them. I realize that I should not be working towards creating my empire but rather making the empire a united group of people serving the same vision (all of us). I realize the selfish and inappropriate nature of setting exclusivity to my content or organization or way . I realize the need to honour every organization affording me a platform to share my message as they have honoured me, to love them as they have loved me, to thank them as they have thanked me, to make dua for them as they have made dua for me, and to never set upon them conditions in exchange for my arrival that burden them. I realize the need to remain in touch with myself for the act of ignition is more needed by myself than it is needed by those I address.
I love you all for the sake of Allah.
I am your brother, Sajid Umar. This is my vision and these are my ‘ponderings’.
