“Over the foreboding mountains, through the abysmal valleys, astride the desolate plains and through the tumultuous seas, this nation will persevere. Ya shabaab, ya shabaab, ya shabaab … innakum quwwatuna … fa la takoun minal qaniteen.”

“The salvation of humanity is not achieved by force of arms. It depends upon the moral courage and spirit of self-sacrifice of a handful of people who, by worldly standards, are often considered to be lacking in good fortune. It is they, who courting dangers and trials, release millions of people from their miseries and lead them from despair to hope and from wretchedness to grace. They are the people who consider a cheap bargain if by the sacrifice of a few, many are able to achieve dignity and prosperity and if by some loss of prosperity and wealth, the doors of material and spiritual well being are opened on many.”

Taken from “Islam and the World” by Sheikh Abul Hassan Ali Nadwi.

    I love Maulana Abul Hasan Ali Nadwi, rahimahullah. One of contemporary’s best. His quote now reflects upon his own life and works. 🙂
