The Path of Submission - From Darkness to Light

Miftaah Circle: The Path of Submission - From Darkness to Light!

Before the advent of Islam, the society of the Arabian Peninsula had goodness within it, however, it was filled with many ills. The light of Islam that transformed these individuals from the lowest of the low, to the greatest individuals seen. The Companions and the generations that came after, Arab and non-Arab, have since become revered to us in every shape, way, and form. This Path of Submission also offers us the same opportunity as believers. We can also transform from the darkness into the light and bring out the beauty within our hearts, in the pursuit of perfection of our khuluq. What brings out this change is Islam.
