Realise Your Potential: Drawing on a couplet of the celebrated poet, Dr Muhammad Iqbal, Mawlana Sayyid Abul Hassan ‘Ali Nadwi (Rahmatullahi Alayh) in his characteristic manner encourages students of Islamic knowledge to realise their full potential, avoiding despair and despondency. He advises them to be worthy representatives of Islam, fully cognisant of Allah’ s promise to those who serve His Religion. He exhorts students to gain command of the Arabic language, study diligently, purify their intentions, and inculcate the necessary qualities to succeed. Although brief in nature, this talk will benefit and inspire students of Islamic knowledge.
Mawlana Sayyid Abul Hassan Ali Nadwi (Rahmatullahi Alayh) was one of the most widely read and influential Muslim scholars of his time and was a powerful orator and writer. For his services, he was awarded the King Faisal Award amd many other accolades. The unifying theme of Mawlana Sayyid Ali Nadwi’s timeless commitments, as a scholar and Da’ee, was the spiritual well-being of Muslims emphasising to them their relationship with Allah and each other.
