With G_d's Name, the Merciful Benefactor, the Merciful Redeemer
I have viewed the presentation on the upcoming educational offering, the Islamic Leadership Training & Development Program (ILTDP) and am hereby endorsing its effort to contribute to the community of the students of Imam W. Deen Mohammed as we move towards a more profound grasp of our religion, Al-Islam (Qur’an and the Sunnah of Muhammed) and the leadership, logic, and commentary (tafsir) of Imam W. Deen Mohammed.
I believe the ILTDP is proffering an intensive and comprehensive curriculum and it is a powerful effort in our struggle to share with humanity at large the enormous benefits of the Word of G_d, the Qur’an, and the Sunnah of Muhammed, the Prophet (peace be upon him), by way of the students of the language, logic, and commentary of the greatest thinker since Muhammed, the Prophet, Imam W. Deen Mohammed. May Allah grant our leader, Imam W. Deen Mohammed, to be on the highest of the Jannah (Paradise) along with our Prophet.

There is only one Creator, Allah (swt) and prophet Muhammad is His Messenger (pbuh) and seal of the prophets
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) said “Make learning easy for the people” which is mandate for us to reach the least among us as well as the most learned among us leaving no one out is a marvelous goal.
Realizing that nature is made to express itself through the intellect and that the environment is the shaper, this noble approach in the continuing effort for the freedom of mind of humanity realizes people are no stronger than their knowledge and that language serves as a womb to give birth to new thinking. This leadership training effort holds the promise that it will not be afraid to say no to any attempt to entomb the minds and souls of men. It is designed to accomplish this goal offering courses in areas that has a Community Leadership Component; an Islamic Sciences Component; and an Imam W. Deen Mohammed Knowledge Body Curriculum Component. This will build strong, competent leadership for the present and future times.
This will be as a new authority that will influence and make the nature of the inner being, obey it and be in agreement with the growth and nature that G-d put within all of us, and keeping in mind that the purpose of education is to bring relief and advancement to society. This unique approach looks into the nature of the Islamic sciences to discover its logic in a way that we will not ignore our mental needs while trying to develop the physical.
The effectiveness of the program will be seen when people are turned on to their five senses by way of this method to learning, knowledge, power, and equality which will restore human substance and essence to its proper place. It is structured to give education that will connect the person back with knowledge that is reflected in nature itself. This program is going to have a profound impact our community’s needs and will be of such a valuable asset until it requires the support of all of us.
Thanks for the many hours of input from the contributors that resulted in this initial effort which is a historical first for our community designed to serve our world now and in the future with national and global impact for the betterment of humanity.
