with Excellence for a Brighter Future
ICNE Keynote Address
Please define
‘FUTURE’
The single, most powerful change
to transform the world is to move
from - the world is responsible for
me to, I'm responsible for the
world.
What must be done?
Start afresh to create a new generation
The Qur’anic way
 A’al Imraan 3: 190. Verily! In the creation of the heavens and the
earth, and in the alternation of night and day, there are indeed
signs for people of understanding.
 191. Those who remember Allah standing, sitting, and lying down
on their sides, AND think deeply about the creation of the
heavens and the earth, (saying): "Our Rabb! You have not created
(all) this without purpose, glory to You! Save us from the
punishment of the Fire
Key word is AND
The Qur’an promotes
science as a tool to see the
Hand of the Creator behind
the marvels of His creation.
Collect dots or connect dots -
is the difference between
information and knowledge;
mugging and understanding;
success and failure.
