All praises are only for Allah Ta’ala. We praise Him, seek His Help and beseech Him to forgive us. We seek His Protection from the evils of our carnal selves and bad actions. None can lead astray whom He guides and none can guide whom He leads astray. We bear witness that none is worthy of worship except Allah Ta’ala, the One Who has no partner and Muhammed (sallallaahu alayhi wa sallam) is His slave and messenger.
In all the phases of history youth were the secret strength of their nations, the pillars of their progress, the cause of their honour and esteem, the tools of their future and the most important asset and useful capital in their possession. This is due to the fact that the youth are known for their spirit of courage, boldness and dedication, their purity of mind and intellect and their excess power and strength. These factors make them more capable to build, lead and serve a nation.
In the early period of Islam, the youth played an important role in carrying and spreading the message of Islam to all the regions of the world. They also played a great role in the leadership of armies, the conquering of cities, the hoisting of the flag of Tauhid (the Oneness of Allah Ta’ala) and carrying the torch of hidâyah (guidance). This role will always be played by the youth as long as the Muslim Ummah exists.
