Imam W D. Mohammed Commentary of Education:
This is Al Islam, and this is the Qur’an. The most important tool in the Qur’an is the tool of education. The most important tool in the effort to advance the ummah, the community of Al Islam or the ummah (community) of Muhammed is education.*
Imam W D. Mohammed:
The key is to work for excellence of human nature, for the excellent future and destiny of human beings on this earth. When you work for that, you are working in accord with what G-d’s Purpose is for you being on this earth. You are in accordance with His Will. And He is going to be with you, His Spirit is with you.
Imam W D. Mohammed:
When reading the Qur'an we say, Sadaqullahul ‘ Atheem. And Zakat (Charity) is directly connected to ethics, meaning ethical conduct, associated with ethics. It means involvement of high moral sense and rational sense. Clean and intelligent altogether, these are the meanings that are locked up in the Zakat (Charity).
