My Tribute:All these have been put together from years of experience working with The Message magazine, ICNA & wonderful editors; Fayyaz Khan & Lydia Griffin. Also Hamza Yusuf, Chris Hedges, Jeffrey Lang, Karen Armstrong, Seyyed Hossein Nasr, James Allen, Maryam Jameelah, & many more. There’s also the blast from the past...those whose bodies have turned to dust but their ideas shine like everlasting gold...Rumi, Ibn Kathir, Maududi, Muhammad Asad, Allama Muhammad Iqbal, Sayyid Qutb, Annemarie Schimmel & my favourite, Khalil Gibran. And to Prophet Muhammad (p) who remains the inspiration to all of them & us. May God grant all of them the rewards that truly belong to them. It was my burning desire to put quality ideas into the hands of people of all religious persuasions in an easily digestible format, hence these brochures (project started July 2008).I have been asked time & again by many, with incredulity in their voices“Did you write all of this?”Here’s the answer...As stated the ideas have come from many sources.All I have done is put them through the mill of my own mind.Emerson said: “Thought is the PROPERTY of the one who can entertain it.And of him who can place it. A certain ackwardness marks the use of borrowed thoughts; BUT as soon as we have learned what to dowith them, they become our own. Thus all originality is RELATIVE.” Please read books. These are just appetizers. Thank you & may The Creator guide unto His Path. Varied reading is encouraged as a sure, if winding, path to greater understanding & knowledge.
