Submitters Perspective

Goal in Life

Cont’d from page 2

Beyond the everyday payoff of a more organized, effective way of life, your sense of personal mission can bring you peace of mind—even when things don’t seem to be going well. Too little money? Disappointment at work? If you stay focused on the ideals that mean the most to you, whatever the setbacks, your life will be moving in the right direction.

Yes, indeed. If we can stay focused and be steadfast in worshiping God alone by following His commandments, God will help us to go through all the tests with ease. He will also strengthen our foothold by channeling our energy and effort in more effective ways. Our lives will be moving in the right direction, heading for the greatest triumph by the grace of the Most Merciful. That will then be the fulfillment of our goal in this life.

Absolutely, God’s allies have nothing to fear, nor will they grieve. They are those who believe and lead a righteous life. For them, joy and happiness in this world, as well as in the Hereafter. This is God’s unchangeable law. Such is the greatest triumph. (10:62-64)

My dear brothers and sisters at Masjid Tucson. May Allah bless you all for helping me and other brothers and sisters too. Thank you all for sending me a Quran.... I also would like to thank you for sending me the submitters perspective too; and I would love to get one every month.

All praise is to Allah, the Almighty.

I greet you ICS in the Arabic language of peace.

As-salamu Alaikum wa-Rahmatullah:

...My beloved Muslim brothers and sisters, I am a member of the S.O.I. or should I say a student of Islam to correct all misconception and innovated teachings of Islam. I am writing in request for a newsletter and any other knowledgeable material that can help me grow in the religion of Islam. I am incarcerated and the place where I’m held do not furnish any Islamic material. We have to struggle for every piece of information on Islam.

So I’m asking if it’s possible you could all bless me and my brothers with some proper information on Islam and some books, Qurans from your source and pamphlets so we can move to the next level of this religion. Your assistance really would be some help. Thank you.

I leave you as I came in the Arabic language of Peace.

As-salamu Alaikum wa-Rahmatullah.

Minister: H.A. Shabazz
