Obeying the shari’ah is not being a “good boy”. Obeying the shari’ah is seeing that the social nexus is one which is in conformity with that which has been determined by the Rasul, salla Llahu ´alayhi wa sallam, in Madinah and by his sahaba and confirmed by and expanded by the khulafa ar-rashidun. These are our duties, and this is what now is placed on You and You are the people who must do it. Yo…u must remember. You cannot escape back into a private world of Your own project. The private project has to be subjected to the ruhani project of re-establishing legal transactions in every aspect in dunya which in itself will provide you with a correct moral behaviour of man among other men, a man in relation to women, and the women among other women and women in relation to men. This will come by that and not the other way around. You cannot be “good”, morally good, in a society where the transactions are morally bad. It is not possible. This is our duty. This is our responsability. It has fallen to your hand and on your shoulder. We ask Allah to give you strength. We ask Allah to open this land to the teaching of the people of Madinah so it is re-established all over Africa.
