Alf alf mabruk; insha’allah in a few weeks or months, ICIT will witness another great milestone: none other than the tafsir of the noble Qur’an, The Ascendant Qur’an, celebrating its tenth anniversary (first volume was printed in 2008). The first of its kind initiated by the late Dr. Kalim Siddiqui (rahmatullahi ‘alayhi) at the request of the youth of South Africa (in 1996), this great and noble task fell on the shoulders of our dear brother, Imam Muhammad H. al-‘Asi. May the merciful Lord make his task easy, amin.
With Volumes 11 and 12 already uploaded to the ICIT digital library or hard copies en route from the printers along with other publications already there or on the way, this will, insha’allah only boost the morale of the youth and the Ummah at large; and yes, the emerging Islamic leadership around the world as well.
The ICIT founders know that only Allah (swt) will reward them in both worlds. Again, by involving more sincere and committed seekers of truth and justice, can one truly succeed.
