National President's Letter to SIO Members

National President's Letter to SIO Members
Dear Brother!!!!

Assalamu Alaikum!!!,

The Holy Month of Ramadan has started. This month is indeed a 30 days Campaign of ‘Self Development’. One important feature of the ongoing term of SIO is ‘Self Development’. This month is a Golden opportunity for all of us to promote our personality from all dimensions and march towards the ideal one. Here are some important points for your reminder.
In the companionship of Quran:  The most distinguishing feature of Ramadan is the ‘Relevance of Quran’ in this month. All of us should try to spend most of our time in the companionship of Quran. Its recitation, memorizing and thorough understanding should be primarily focused. Make Quran an ‘Everyday Guide’.

Strong Relationship with Allah: Not only Farz (Obligatory) Prayers… but do perform more and more prayers to seek the close and firm attachment with Allah.

Specially don’t miss a Tahajjud Prayer for a single day (you can easily devote some time for
     Tahajjud before Sahar).
  Try to search Lailatul Qadr. Perform different individual or collective Ibadahs in these nights.
 Memorize and perform some Azkar and  Duas regularly.
  Repenting (tauba & Astaghfar) should also be a regular act in this month.
  It is preferable that every member should perform Aitikaf at least once in organizational life.
     Encourage and make favorable atmosphere for our cadre for Aitikaf at unit level.  

  Good Habits for a Powerful Personality: The process of Personality Reformation requires promotion of good habits. Habits cannot be developed without ‘Continuous Struggle’. Ramadan is best opportunity to promote good habits and avoid bad ones. Identify your good / bad habit which you should develop/ avoid (e.g. anger, sleep, sexual desires, misuse of tongue, carelessness about Fajar Prayer, Passiveness etc)

Cooperative spirit for Society: Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) had called Ramadan as ‘Shahrul Mavasat’ (Month of Sympathy and Help). Apart from ‘Attachment with Allah’, Ramadan also requires ‘Strong Attachment with Society’. Through our Infaq, Zakat and other physical contribution, we should try to help poor, needy and deprived people of the society. Remember this Social approach is as important as ‘Talluq Billah’.    

Role of Da’ee as well: Spread the message of Quran and Ramadan to as many students and youth as you can. Ramadan blessings should not be confined to our individual affairs.

Avoid Excessive Eating, Sleep and Shopping: Lastly, the biggest obstacle in getting benefitted from Ramadan is excessive Eating, Sleep and Shopping. Unfortunately they have become the most important features of Ramadan especially among the youth community. Beware of them.

Discover a ‘New Self’ within you. May Allah make this Ramadan a Milestone in our life….

Our Journey

Your Pearls of Wisdom

Success breeds success

There was a farmer who grew superior quality, award-winning corn in his farm. Each year, he entered his corn in the state fair where it won honors & prizes.

One year a newspaper reporter interviewed him and learned something interesting about how he grew his corn. The reporter discovered that the farmer shared his seed corn with his neighbors.

"How can you afford to share your best seed corn with your neighbors when they are entering corn in competition with
yours each year?" The reporter asked. "Why brother"

'' The farmer replied, "Didn't you know? The wind picks up pollen grains from the ripening corn and swirls it from field to field.

If my neighbors grow inferior, sub-standard & poor quality corn, cross-pollination will steadily degrade the quality of my corn. If I have to grow good corn, I must help my neighbors to grow good corns."

The farmer gave a superb insight into the connectedness of life. His corn cannot improve unless his neighbors' corn also improves. So it is in the other dimensions and areas of life!
Those who choose to be in harmony must help their neighbors and colleagues to be at peace.

Those who choose to live well must help others live well. The value of a life is measured by the lives it touches...

Success does not happen in isolation; it is most often a participatory and collective process. So share the good practices, ideas and new knowledge with your family, friends, team members and neighbors & all.
