Unity in the Efforts of Dien

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem


"All efforts of Dien are required. If a person can involve himself in any work of Dien, he should join in and make the relevant effort. 

If a person is involved in running a Maktab, he should continue to do so. If a person is involved in the work of Da’wah and Tableegh, he should continue in that effort. If a person is linked to a Khanqah, he should continue in that field.

Those who are more versatile, and can manage participating in more than one effort, should Masha-Allah, continue, and strive to participate in as many efforts as possible. An ability of this nature should not be limited.

One should not give preference to Dunya; preference should be given to the effort and Khidmat (service) of Dien. Basically, one should do all one can, and as much as one can in the Khidmat of Dien.

What is important, even though one is limited in his capabilities of assisting with Dieni efforts, is to support all the other efforts by way of Dua. One should also render moral support to all the other noble efforts of Dien as well. One should not criticize other works of Dien nor those who strive in any particular effort of Dien."
