“Who are you?”

Posted by nuruliman45 on March 2, 2011

I was fascinated by the answer of Imam Shahid Hasan al-Banna when asked who he was.  (He was assassinated and martyred in 1949)

Kalau ditanya kita ni siapa, mampukah jawab begini…?

When once asked by a journalist to introduce himself, Imam Shahid Hasan al-Banna said:

“I am a traveler seeking the truth, a human searching for the meaning of humanity and a citizen seeking dignity, freedom, stability and welfare under the shade of Islam. I am a free man who is aware of the purpose of his existence and who proclaims: “Truly, my prayer and my sacrifice, my living and my dying are all for Allah, the Lord of the worlds; no partner has He. This, am I commanded and I am of those who submit to His Will.” This is who I am. Who are you?”
