The Muslim Nation today is experiencing a blessed awakening in all aspects of its affairs; one that has been aroused by the efforts of the Muslim youth.
However, the astute observer of this awakening will find that there are many problems that hinder its progress; problems that have prompted some scholars,
callers to Islam, and students of knowledge to lay down some guidelines that the youth of this blessed awakening should adhere to and follow.
Without a doubt, the enemies from without � the Jews, Christians, and others � have tried to put a stop to this awakening, simply because they fear the results of its success and because they know that, if it strengthens, spreads, and succeeds in achieving its aims, it will signal the end of their dominance.
However the astute observe will find that there are many problems that hinder its progress, problems that have caused some of the scholars to lay down some guidelines that the youth of this blessed awakening should adhere to and follow. It should also be noted that if the Islamic guidelines are not strictly adhered to, and the youth are left to be driven by their emotions alone, then surely this awakening will result in destroying more than it will build!
