Human beings are potentially the best of the creations of God, and are precious beyond any price. To deceive them into selling themselves cheap, they must be fed false identities created by a fake and meaningless education which poisons minds and leads them to believe that they are commodities for sale on the marketplace. The antidote is the following thought-exercise:
” I am a traveler seeking the truth, a human searching for the meaning of humanity and a citizen seeking dignity, freedom, stability and welfare under the shade of Islam.
I am a free man who is aware of the purpose of his existence and who proclaims: ‘Truly, my prayer and my sacrifice, my living and my dying are all for Allah, the Lord of the worlds. No partner has He. This, I have been commanded, and I am of those who submit to His Will.’ This is who I am.
Who are you? ”
Hasan Al-Banna Rahimullah
