Newsletter August 2006


The hope of every society rests on its people. Humane values and good deeds bring peace and prosperity and corruption of these values brings decay and destruction. This is the unalterable law of God.

The theme of this newsletter is 'our Society'. In this update we present several essays on this subject and its perspective in Quran and Sunnah.

Following are the new essays, articles and opinions submitted by our members and guests:
