Promoting Progress, Edifying the Globe
Islam is unique in that it is an all-encompassing religion, with myriads of adherents in every corner of the globe. The fact that these pluralistic communities, coming from a million different cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds, could accept Islam as their way of life is evidence of Islam’s capability as an agent of advancement and prosperity. But we are now on the precipice of change: with the recent leaps in information technology, the an Islamic society is on the path to becoming something much more than scattered communities brought together by a common faith. We are on the path of progress—to becoming a global Islamic society that promotes intercultural connection, the progression of knowledge, the development of economic cooperation, and the strengthening of people-to-people relations. We are on the path of becoming a global Islamic society so strong and united that together we will edify the globe. This is the vision we work towards.
