Governing yourself and your Family - According what Allah has revealed
Taken from the author's introduction:
The subject matter of this work has preoccupied and continues to preoccupy the minds of our nations memebers; yet in spite of this preoccupation, many people lack a correct understanding regarding it. Because the issues that fall under the subject matter of this work are so important, I decided to write this work, through which I hope to make plain the way to live and act according to what Allah has revealed.
Contrary to what some may think, this work is relevant not just to leaders, but to every individual as well. Each and every human being is a leader and chief of sorts, for just as a ruler is responsible for the welfare of his state and citizens, each one of us is responsible for his flock - the members of his family, and more importantly his own self...
Today we as a nation are afflicted with widespread ignorance. The nations of the world gather against us, just as fellow eaters gather upon their dish. They use every tool at their disposal against us - their wealth, their strength, their technical advancement, their strategy, their deception, and their disbelief. We are in such a state of peril that is is senseless to imagine that a single group among us can put a stop to their constant onslaught.
Our hearts must unite; we must cooperate; we must have correct knowledge; we must work productively; we must be patient; we must make sacrifices; we must give; we must fight our own desires; and we must be sincere.
