Fitrah is a Qur’anic word that denotes the psychological core of the human being. This core, this profound sense of identity and deep innate nature, is the place where faith and trust in God repose. Deformed as it is in the cultural and familial milieu of the acculturated among us, it awaits the prompt and friendly aid of the faithful whose life focuses on the mosque.
The younger generations, put on their guard against the typhoon of bestial culture, will easily respond to the appeal. Childhood is the principal stake of the future; it should be the object of our solicitude and care so as preserve the fitrah in its freshness, despite the dry and barren winds.”
