We can plan, but Allah is the best of planners
It was a privilege and an honor to be invited to the home of who will have to be one of the most influential Daa’es of our time.
Tenfold Directors, Mohammad Quadan and Bassem Saddik, arrived outside the apartment block of Dr Zakir in a suburb on the fringe of Kuala Lumpur in January this year. Ushered by his staff up to the top floor apartment, they were anxiously waiting to meet the man who has inspired millions across the globe through his knowledge in comparative religion and his sincere love and devotion to want the best for others.
As the door of Dr Zakir’s apartment opens, they were greeted with a huge warm and welcoming smile, he asked them to come inside and greeted one them as though he had known them for a very long time.
A humble man, in his humble apartment then starts to serve his guests himself, showing his true hospitable character. He has traveled the globe, he is a key speaker that will pack out an entire stadium of people just to hear him speak, he has met and had audiences with notable Presidents and Prime Ministers, yet still served sweets and poured juice and water for his guests.
After a few moments of getting to know one another better, Mohammad and Bassem presented Dr Zakir with the Tenfold products and explained how it has impacted individuals and organisations across the globe. They described the task they had ahead of them to scale the organisation and received some priceless advice from a man who grew a global organisation to have over 500 full-time staff and over 5,000 active volunteers ma shaa Allah!
Dr Zakir was extremely impressed with the innovative approach Tenfold has take and the level of quality and professionalism their branding and products portray. He said that in the Muslim world we need to have products like this, such a high standard to be used for Da’wah and spreading the message if Islam, presenting it in the best and most beautiful way possible.
They discussed the importance of not only making these resources available for those that want to learn, but ensuring the source of knowledge is authentic and ensuring that any Islamic learning or educational products made available should adhere to most sound teachings of the Prophet Muhammad Peace and Blessings be upon Him.
Dr Zakir was so impressed with the Tenfold My Prayer and My Belief products and concept that he requested a large batch for his own organisation in order to distribute to those who require it.
Tenfold is humbled to be able to collaborate with Dr Zakir Naik and his team moving forward inshaAllah.
May Allah bless Dr Zakir Naik and his family for all they have done. Ameen!
