"Ultimately, society does not change overnight, and the night is always replaced with a new day; the Muslim who strives to change the world should see every morning as a new opportunity and understand that every generation will die and be replaced by another. Gradual, structural, global change requires multi-generational sincerity, wisdom, strategy, knowledge, implementation, and perseverance, leaving the results to the One who knows all things." Suleiman Hani
