Unity. Faith. Discipline.

The picture above might show us the universalist nature of the world we are now living in. On the left is a French-Swiss philosopher who preferred to dress like an Ottoman citizen, defended the teachings of Prophet Muhammad and became the father of modern political thought – Jean-Jacques Rousseau. In the middle is a Muslim leader whose taste for elegant European clothes was as widely known as his strict adherence to the parliamentary methods of democracy, and he founded the largest Muslim state of the twentieth century – Quaid-i-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah. On the right is an American who known to her contemporaries as a mystic among political scientists, and helped invent the discipline of management science – Mary Parker Follett.

These people are not the figments of romantic imagination. Along with other members of their school of thought they have shaped the world we live in. This world is Marghdeen, if only we learn to see what they desired to show us.
