“Sometimes, for some Muslims, 2 plus 2 doesn’t quite make 4. Their answer: Don’t worry, it will come out right in the next world. Whereas in Islam 2 plus 2 always makes 4 – whether it is your apples you are counting or your enemy’s.

And there were those among Muslims who were never afraid to tell the truth, even when the truth worked against them.

Those were the times when Muslims were known as the People of Truth.

And it was this lesson – the lesson to speak the truth – that Sir Muhammad Iqbal, the great Poet of Islam, in Urdu and Persian languages, urged Muslims to Re-Learn.

“Re-Learn the Lesson of Truth Telling,” said Iqbal.

“For, you are about to be called to the Leadership of the World.”

Anyone with any ability to read the events that rock the world today can see that Iqbal was right and that that time is upon us.

And that Muslims are being called upon to come forward to shoulder the burdens of leadership in the world.

But to merit that noble mantle, and to hasten that day, Muslims must first Re-Learn the Lesson of Truth Telling.

Nothing else will work.

And not just the Muslims but the entire world will be the loser if Muslims fail to Re-Learn their forgotten Lesson of Truth Telling.” (Dr. Pasha)
