And now a short story…

One fine day it occurred to the members of the body that they were doing all the work and the belly was having all the food. So they held a meeting, and after a long discussion, decided to strike work till the belly consented to take only its proper share of the work.

So for a day or two, the hands refused to take the food, the mouth refused to receive it, and the teeth had no work to do. But after a day or two the members began to find that they themselves were not in a very active condition: the hands could hardly move, and the mouth was all parched and dry, while the legs were unable to support the rest.

So thus they found that even the belly in its dull quiet way was doing necessary work for the whole body, and that all must work together or the body will go to pieces. Moral: Each of us has a role to play; play yours!

Genesis of New American LeadershipGenesis of New American Leadership. Featuring a foreword by Imam Omar Shaheed and afterword by Imam Plemon T. El-Amin, Genesis of New American Leadership: Building the Community Life is one of the most powerful books from the American Muslim perspective since The Autobiography of Malcolm X!…It is the text from which organizations in the Association of Imam W. Deen  Mohammed adapted their mission statements.  A 33-year examination of how millions of American Muslims moved from theocratic autocracy toward true Islamic democracy and the lessons for today’s leaders. Provocative, yet pragmatic, universal yet specific and one of the most intriguing books ever written by an American author on leadership. For Muslims this book is about the genesis of a new responsibility and for the non-Muslim, it is about the genesis of a new understanding and acceptance.  FPLLC Qalam Books Division, English, hardcover, dust jacket, reference text: 336p.

“Education is the greatest tool for advancing the society.” We do want to advance our society, don’t we? Are you a part of a society or are you just a part of a Masjid?”―Imam W. Deen Mohammed (ra)
