Quote of the Month

Islamic teachings convey on the whole a certain awareness and insight into one’s inner self and outer environment, informed and enlightened in the meantime by a set of principles and sound human reason. The external dimension of this awareness is a civilizational mission pertaining to relations among human individuals and communities and how they relate, in turn, to their earthly habitat and living environment. This is the focus of Islam’s teachings on the vicegerency of man in the earth ( istikhlaf fi al-ard ) and his responsibility to build it and create a just social order that is ethically grounded and enriched by the spirit of beneficence ( ihsan ).
