The Main Focus of Muslim Activists...

Shaykh Muhammmad al Yaqoubi sums up his way in the following words:

"The main focus of Muslim activists in the field of Da'wa should be on making people aware of the importance of learning the Deen, studying the Shariah, and diving into the depths of Sacred Knowledge in order to ultimately live upon it. The key to the success and triumph of the Muslim Umma unequivocally lies in Sacred Knowledge. Only through studying the Qur'an, the Hadith, the Fiqh and the related subjects may we increase the fear of Allah in our hearts and precisely emulate the exemplar of the Prophet sallla Allahu alayhi wa sallam and follow the footsteps of the Ulama. In order for the Umma to regain its intellectual consciousness and reinstate its sense of civilisation, we need, beside following the Qur'an and Sunna, to adhere to the way of the Ulama that spans over fourteen centuries, a way that, in reflecting the Qur'an and Sunna, articulated the corpus of Fiqh and the exegeses of the Qur'an and Sunnah, thus introducing the way to the following generations. Recognising their legacy and digging out its treasures is vital to the recovery of the Umma. This can only be done through reviving the tradition of learning and teaching in Islam, where a teacher represents the spring of knowledge and the exemplar of righteousness, the continuation of the glorious past and the embodiment of the blessing and light of an unbroken chain of transmission. People should know that unlike political movements and sectarian groups, we do not call to our own way, nor do we have our own new agenda."
