Everyone wanted to do, or rather start, something.
All the time, things said by brothers Adnan & Hamza were floating in my mind. So, I was sitting just like that thinking about something remotely different and it hit me.
This picture popped in my mind and I said to myself, “But this is awesome, they gave the plan of action themselves”.
(*Note: Its Bayyinah, not Bayinnah.)
Brother Hamza Andreas Tzortzis said at UCI, “Pakistan will not change with power, Pakistan will not change with gold, Pakistan will not change with money…. Pakistan will only change when we change our hearts.”
(By the way, can you guess what changes the hearts forever?)
So the first thing is that hearts be softened. We get to realize, at the very first step, that Allah DOES exist. We belong to Him, have to return to Him and have to spend our lives according to His likes and dislikes. This recognition was reinforced in us by these iERA people (by the will of Allah s.w.t), alhamdulillah.
And so the earth was ready now for the seed to be sown.
Then comes the next step. In order to live our life according to Allah s.w.t’s likes and dislikes, we need to know what His likes and dislikes are. For that we need the Quran because it is the Word of Allah i.e. Allah’s speech, He speaks to us directly in it.
Naturally we need to understand this Great Book through and through.
So here you are. Notice the 3rd website mentioned by brother Hamza on the white board in the picture?
On this website you’ll get the detailed explanation of the Quran with the contextual background and all inshaAllah.
Let’s start today. Download it, trim it into 10 minutes chunks and load it into your mobile. This way you can listen to it while commuting or waiting.
Check out websites for explanation of Quran at the end of this post.
By the way, this plan is something individual and very personal. After we’re done with the explanation of the Quran we can go to the rest of the websites mentioned in the picture and build up reasoning, relate it with our Quran notes and be ready for any sort of serious discussions and debates etc. :p
As for doing something collectively, I’m sure Youth Club’s cooking up something for you. ;)

P.S. Remember that you won’t really understand the Quran unless you are taught by a teacher i.e. by listening (be it an online teacher). Its just like you’d never understand your physics or chemistry book unless you have a teacher for that.
