In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
[The holy Koran 3:104] “And from among you there should be a party who invite to good and enjoin what is right and forbid the wrong, and these it is that shall be successful.”
[The holy Koran 3:110] “You are the best of the nations raised up for (the benefit of) men; you enjoin what is right and forbid the wrong and believe in Allah.”
Progressive Muslim Organization (PMO)
Our ideology: We are not Sunni, nor Shi’ite (Shia), nor Hanafie, nor Malike, nor Shafie, nor Ahole Hadith, nor Jamati, nor Hefajoti etc. We are Muslims [Surrenderers to the Almighty Allah only and exclusively].
In Bangladesh around 85% people are Muslims. If we go back to the history of Islam in Bangladesh, from the beginning of thirteen century some very dedicated and pious Muslims preached Islam in Bangladesh extensively and with the permission of Allah (SWT) and their preaching most of our forefathers were converted into Islam. Before thirteen century, basically Bangladesh was dominated by Hindus and Buddhists.
However, still now around 15% people in Bangladesh are non-Muslims which imply that around 20 millions people (population in Bangladesh is more than 130 millions) are non-Muslims in Bangladesh. Are the messages of Allah (the messages of Holy Quran) being sent to these non-Muslims through proper and systematic ways? We believe it is not happening really.
Now Allah will not send any new prophet. Sending the Glorious Koran through the last prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and preserving the Koran as its original form by Allah Himself, sending process of prophet and revealed book has been completed.
The true and competent inheritors of prophets (peace be upon them) are the good and advanced Muslims. Therefore, various acts and deeds of true Muslims must be similar like prophets.
That is why our responsibility is to send the messages of Allah through systematic and modern ways not only to the non-Muslims of Bangladesh but also to the non-Muslims of entire world at large.
It is sure that, there is no compulsion in religion [The Quran 2:256]. Therefore, our duties and responsibilities are to send the messages of Allah through best way only and as a result, to whom Allah will please they will accept Islam.
This is the right approach which every prophets and messengers of Allah applied. To do so, we need enormous patient, willingness and rely on Allah.
If we go ahead only due to the cause of Allah, He will help us and as a result we have very good news for this life and eternal life hereafter as well; God declares:
[The Quran 10: 62-64] “Behold! verily on the friends of Allah there is no fear, nor shall they grieve; Those who believe and (constantly) guard against evil;- For them are glad tidings, in the life of the present and in the Hereafter; no change can there be in the words of Allah. This is indeed the supreme felicity.”
[The Koran 40: 51] “We will, without doubt, help our apostles and those who believe, (both) in this world’s life and on the Day (day of resurrection) when the Witnesses will stand forth.”
[The Koran 4:122] “And (as for) those who believe and do good, We will make them enter into gardens beneath which rivers flow, to abide therein for ever; (it is) a promise of Allah, true (indeed), and who is truer of word than Allah”
The main reason of sending the Majestic Quran by Allah to prophet Muhammad is to pull out humankind from utter darkness into light as Allah describes,
[The Koran 14: 1] “Alif Lam Ra. This is a Book (Quran) which We have revealed to you that you may bring forth men, by their Lord’s permission from utter darkness into light– to the way of the Mighty, the Praised One.”
On the other hand, it is very unfortunate that those people who already have received the messages of the Koran (we Muslims), most of us are far away from the true teaching of the Holy Koran. This is the key reason, why worldwide Muslims are in humiliation, prosecution, suppression, oppression etc. although we are in a huge numbers (~1.4 billions).
If we sincerely follow the showing right way of Allah (SWT) we must have withstood as the best nation in every respects because it is the promise and final declaration of Allah, [The Holy Koran 3: 110] “You are the best of peoples”
Due to this reason advanced Muslims without delaying and wasting time, they should always be busy to do righteous works and seek pleasure of God, as He encourages us,
[The Koran 3: 133] “Be quick in the race for forgiveness from your Lord, and for a Garden whose width is that (of the whole) of the heavens and of the earth, prepared for the righteous.”
Therefore to restore the glory and dignity of Islam and Muslim Ummah we must come back to the true teaching and ideology of the Glorious Koran.
Above those circumstances our aims and goals are as follows:
- Wide spreading and circulation of the teaching of the Glorious Koran to non-Muslims (first starting from Bangladesh and later gradually expanding to other countries) and trying our best to convert non-Muslims into Muslims.
- Spreading and circulating the teaching of the Glorious Koran to Muslims widely and eradicating in the name of Islam what absurdity, inaccuracy, misconception are prevailing in Muslim Ummah by using the light of the Holy Koran and awakening Muslims so that Muslims can face and tackle the modern challenges in science and technology.
We would like to earnestly urge you (especially Muslims around the world) to join in this noble endeavor (this was the main work and efforts of all prophets and messengers of Allah) to contribute to Muslims, non-Muslims and human civilization at large for getting enormous rewards from God at here and the eternal life Hereafter.
It is sure that our work is tremendous and challenging but as many days God allows us to alive here let us try our best. InsaAllah, once if we initiate God will set up more competent people to continue our noble efforts after our departure.
At last but not least, let us have a look at the eternal good news and consolation words of our Lord, Allah which will provide us a huge encouragement:
