“Our challenge as Muslims is to determine how best we can revive the ability of Islam to work with the great challenges of our time, the great transformation of our time, using the past as our compass. We must recognize that we are present, on a journey into the future, and past is our North Star. We must use the principles of the past and derive the strength form our past, but we must also reconcile with the fact that we are modern people.”
