Society and the Self

Indeed, Allah will not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.

– The Thunder (Ar-Raad) Qur’an 13:11

“If people are not interested in bringing about change in society, it is because they are not interested in bringing about a change in their own selves. The two – society and the self – are inextricably linked. And if people are not ready to change themselves, then they must suffer whatever society imposes on them. We are the reflections of society and society is the reflection of us. This is something that we as Muslims often forget.”

– Dr. Colin Turner ( influenced by Said Nursi (1876 –1960), one of the most influential Islamic scholar)
