    Founder Message
    "Be good to all, even if they’re not good to you. My father rahmatullahi alayhi used to say, 'Son, do good to all, whether you perceive them as good or not good to you. If they’re good to you, then you’ve done good to those who are worthy of receiving good. And if they’re not good to you, you are worthy of doing good. It is attributed to Shaykh Abdul Qader al-Jaylani to have said: Do good to those who are worthy and those who are not, so that Allah Ta'ala gives you when you are worthy and when you are not.'”
