Minhaj Ul Quran Educational and Cultural Center of America, Inc NJ
The Noble Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “Nobody will be able to revive the Deen (way of life) unless his struggle encompasses each and every aspect (of the Deen simultaneously).” Narrated by Hadrat Abu Hurayrayh (RA). Abu Naeem.
Minhaj ul Qur’an is unique amongst organizations for many reasons. It is an organization that recognizes the causes of the current decline in humanity and proposes the most feasible solutions to its problems. The individual today is suffering from a sense of disintegration and cynicism. The diseases of immorality and obsessive materialism have led to disharmony pervading the whole of human existence. Worshipping the idols of racial, lingual and regional prejudices has become the norm. The nature of today’s decline is multidimensional and requires an all embracing and all encompassing ideology that will revive all aspects of human living.
Minhaj ul Qur’an is clear and unambiguous in its objective. Its message is free of all bigotry, narrow mindedness, and intolerance. Its message is the universal message of Islam, the message of love, peace and worship of one God. It aims to spread the life- giving values of the Qur’an and Sunnah.
The prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) addresses you and invites: “Help my people who abandoned my path, the path of the pure and prosperous. Guide them. Lead them.” So what do we do? Either we can continue in this present impasse or we can rediscover the path of Islam through the Qur’an and the example of our Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) and help to change the course for ourselves and humanity. This is the way of Minhaj ul Qur’an -‘the Way of the Qur’an.’
One: Restoring our relationship with Allah (SWT)
True love and obedience to our Creator and Cherisher are required for us to gain closeness to Him. And thus be guided to the right path. Today this connection is fast diminishing from our hearts due to affection with this fleeting world. Minhaj ul Qur’an seeks to re- establish this relationship by taking Allah (SWT) as our point of reference.
Two: Restoring our relationship with the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him).
The Holy Prophet (peace be upon him) exemplifies this ever nearness to Allah (SWT). He is the crown of creations, whose standards are divinely inspired and must be taken as the ultimate ideal. The path of righteousness leads only through him.
Three: Return to the Qur’an as ‘The Criterion’
The Qur’an is the fountainhead of knowledge and wisdom. It provides solutions for all individual and social problems. Unfortunately today humanity is distant from its teachings. Minhaj ul Qur’an aims to inculcate Qur’anic teachings to empower people for success in both worlds.
Four: Helping to unite the Muslim Ummah
A primary aim of Minhaj ul Qur’an is the unity of the Ummah on the basis of absolute loyalty and reverence to the Holy Prophet (peace be upon him). It seeks to promote our identity as Muslims first and foremost rather than any other tide. Minhaj ul Qur’an has a defined strategy to unite the Ummah from the local to the global level.
