Message from the Founder
In the name of God, the most beneficent, the most merciful
“Swear by the time. Most surely man is in loss save those who believe and do good works, and exhort one another to truth and exhort one another to endurance.”
The divine words of this sacred chapter of the holy Quran, accompanied by an oath from the lord, attests to a very important yet unrecognized fact by most human beings that is, namely, the great loss and annihilation of Mankind. Rest assured Mankind, as a most noble creature of God, who has chosen to bear the burden of divine trust is indeed in perpetual loss owing in what will result in realization of penalty that is awaiting him; unlike the rest of the creatures which will not receive the punishment faced by human kind in the hereafter. But the verse excludes the survivor category of mankind, those that bear two features, faith in God and the good deeds. Both features are integral of the conditions of survival. No man with good faith, yet not bound to do the good deeds can be saved nor the good doer without a firm belief in heavenly message. To survive and win in the hereafter, anyone needs the two aforementioned qualities. If faith is clear to us as Muslims, then I wonder what is the good work? Is it the prayers? Fasting? Pilgrimage? Or the rest of religious rituals that we perform daily or annually? I leave the answer to the Lord of Glory in the verse 177 of Baqarah Chapter of the holy Quran.
“It is not righteousness that you turn your faces towards the East and the West, but righteousness is this that one should believe in Allah and the last day and the angels and the Book and the prophets, and give away wealth out of love for Him to the near of kin and the orphans and the needy and the wayfarer and the beggars and for the emancipation of the captives, and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate; and the performers of their promise when they make a promise, and the patient in distress and affliction and in time of conflicts-- these are they who are true to themselves and these are they who guard against evil”.
The good deed is the work of cooperation and help inspiring the spirit of humanity in the community; therefore, we see a wealth in abundance of holy verses and narrations by the infallible emphasizing the importance of such deeds and their impact toward the evolution of human toward the proximity to the Almighty God.
Perhaps the respected browser to this page may wonder what has invited me, as a cleric and preacher that have spend all my life in seminaries learning and teaching theological scripts and articles and have spent my time with scholars and jurists, to get involved in charitable hospital project, with complex specialties, that serves the natives and the visitors alike? And also to directly supervise and look after by myself? Is not that intrusive to the profession and disregard to the many professionals and people of talent of those involved in the field of healthcare in the country? The answer to that, I at first place as a citizen of this country, feel the sufferings of the sick and afflicted and their pains and agonies. I am fully aware of the current situation and the capability of the community and the state and their inability to meet the dire needs of the citizens. This has invited me to pursue this project and to personally look after it till its completion with grace of God. And strikes me the words of the prophet (PBUH)”You all are shepherds and each of you is responsible of his flock”.
Hence I take my responsibility as a human being before my career as a religious leader to perform my duty towards a community who has experienced adversities and tragedies more than anything else. And strikes me again another word of wisdom of the great Messenger of God, “Like the believers in their mutual love, mercy and compassion like the body if any part suffers and collapses, the rest of the body ensure support by fever and staying diligent”.
Furthermore this enterprise is not only part my humanitarian responsibility nor within the duty of the physicians and those in the healthcare field. Rather it is the burden on the shoulders of all philanthropists who see the depravation of the afflicted and feel their adversities and tragedies and taste their agonies and pains.
Therefore, I beseech all humanitarians and faithful to roll up their sleeves and lay a helping hand to accomplish the noble mission, so all can please our lord and win his satisfaction in the hereafter. The almighty is behind my intent, Him I trust and to Him I rely.
