November 2006 4 Introduction Reform is a message and a necessity Reform has been the mission of prophets and messengers and their followers throughout history. The essence of their message is: “I only desire (your) betterm ent to the best of m y pow er; And m y success (in m y task) can only com e from Allah. In Him I trust and unto Him I turn” Qur'an, Hud - 88 When a society is founded on goodness, and it takes upon itself the responsibility for reform, the results of that reform become the main reason for its survival and growth: Nor would thy Lord be the one to destroy the towns unjustly while their people are righteous Al Qur'an, Surat Hud - 117 The existence of the process of reform at the level of society and the state indicates healthy development based on justice, consultation and social peace and harmony. Reform is an indication of social development. Absence of reform reflects absence of development, decay and corruption. When these negative values exist, they are a harbinger of God’s anger initially, and subsequently, the termination of moral and cultural effectiveness. The universal vision according to the Sunna has led to the emergence of many Islamic Movements. Collectively and successively they have exchanged information, introduced reforms, and contributed to the health and development of the Islamic Nation. Their efforts have been cumulative. Each benefited from previous experiences and achievements. Throughout history, whenever the caliphate or the central power of the Islamic nation was weakened, an intellectual or tribal movement would appear bringing partial or comprehensive reform. This was witnessed by the Omayyad, Abbasid and Ottoman states.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
