When you have a daily relationship with the Quran, with understanding, it’ll change the way you think. It’ll change the kind of friends you have. It’ll change what you want to do with your spare time. It’ll make you people of vision. We need young Muslims to be people of vision. You need to be people that want to change society and make it better. You don’t want to be people of video games and movies and sleep. You don’t want to be those people because, first come video games and movies and sleep than smoking than drugs than alcohol and that’s life wasted.
These are lives, hundreds of thousands of lives, wasted not just of non-Muslims; these are problems of Muslim youth today. Muslim youth have no purpose today. Why is that? Because the book that gives us purpose, we’re disconnected from it. We’re disconnected from that book; we have to reconnect with this book. This is our really serious obligation.
We have in the Uma’h to help the people come closer to this book and not scare people from this book and push them away from this book. You know when people get angry at the youth that turn away from the Deen? I don’t get angry at them; I get angry at people like myself. We haven’t done enough. They would not have gone away if they knew what this was and they don’t know what this is because, we’re not doing our job. Those of us that should be teaching should be teaching more and those of you that are youth, which are of concern, become people of concern for others.
