Islam should be met firmly and effectively through the medium of English which is today an international language. Yet we know that the many beauties of the Arabic language and the many subtleties of the wisdom of al Quran al Karim can never be translated to bring out their full import and meaning. In order to bring out their full import and meaning, in order to guard their excellent characteristics and connotations we must resort to the building of Islamic English so that our aim is realized and at the same time Al Quran is revered and sanctified.

Justice and benevolence are the two great principles of faith. When mercy assists justice, a peaceful society comes into existence. Faith invites us towards a noble character so that we may create on earth a virtuous society which ensures the well fare and happiness of the masses and the prosperity of nations.
Our leaders have taught us that: An ideal believer will have the following virtues, which are the goals of every human being.
Conviction in religion, firmness in gentleness, craving for knowledge, maturity in learning, frugality in richness, humility in worship, grace in poverty, patience in adversity, pursuit of the lawful. He engages in good action, is wary of doing wrong. He practices what he professes. His day begins with remembrance of the Creator and ends in giving thanks to Him. He is enamored of eternal values and disregards the perishable.
