The Soul of Revolution
“Truly, God does not change the condition of a people until they change what is in themselves.” (Quran 13:11)
“In this time of political unrest and turmoil our collective concerns are based more upon external change than the importance of change or revolution within ourselves. Surely if we make our intentions for God, He can change our condition entirely.
These talks are aimed at capturing the essence of the moment and providing positive alternatives for humanity at large.”
