If you are one of those who are trying to change the world but wonder where to start, probably answering this question is a good idea. Go down deep inside yourself, beyond your university degree, career title, and the 2-3 letters that may exist on your business card (whether you have an MBA, PhD, MD, or even a BS)!

Surah Yasin is an invitation to all human beings to look and reflect on two miracles that Allah has placed in this universe: The Quran representing the recited words of Allah, and the universe representing the viewed signs of Allah’s power. The Surah develops its arguments in six distinct sections:
Luqman may Allah be pleased with him was one of the very few individuals who were quoted by Allah SWT in His holy book. Although he was not a prophet, he was a famous person in the Arabian literature with lots of wise words that are attributed to him. Out of all of his sayings, Allah specifically highlighted the advice that he gave to his own son.
In the 7th year after hijra, Aisha the wife of the prophet PBUH went through a very difficult experience when she was accused of being unchaste (the whole event is referred to as the Hadith of Al-Ifk); the slander was spread like wild fire in the whole Madinah community and unfortunately some Muslims fell into the traps of the Satan and carried the news around. The Surah was revealed to declare the innocence of the wife of the prophet PBUH and introduce a whole set of rules and regulations that will protect the honor of the individual and the modesty of the community.
