Our Grandsheikh says that most important for new Muslims is to try to be a real Muslim, not to be a learned person in Islam. Important is to live a real muslim life. We see now so many learned people not living Islam. We are interested in keeping the principles of Islam. Learning is very easy, but to be a real Muslim is too difficult.

The whole world is Allah’s Kingdom and we are his servants. In every place, not only in Islamic countries, we may live and show to others His Kingdom by saying: lâ ilâha illâ llâh, Muhammadan rasûla llâh. This is honour for you, making Divine Light on every foot of land. You can learn everywhere. Islamic books are translated into many languages. Be a right Muslim, a bright personality with your faith among people.

I can teach you the principles of Islam in one meeting. Can you take it? Can you keep it? In one moment’s looking to the Prophet, peace be upon him, a man could take a bond with his heart, receiving what he needed for his life and others. We must follow an inheritor of the Prophet. A real Muslim lives for others, not himself. Take knowledge and give, don’t take and keep for yourself.
