The world’s most influential people, know the one key characteristic to help them reach their goals and effect change. They are highly motivated and their connection with their Lord is unbreakable.

One of the important factors in the development and behaviours of the societies of the world today is the impact of role models. Allah informs us about this factor, when highlighting the real role model for all of mankind. That Prophet Muhammad is our guide, mentor, leader, role model in all aspects of life, he is the greatest man to ever walk on this earth.

“Indeed, in the messenger of Allah you have an excellent role model for whoever has hope in Allah and the Last Day, and remembers Allah often.” [33:21].

Now more than ever, role models are affecting the lives of all people around the world. Due to mediums like social media people are influenced very easily. However, these ‘role models’ are devoid of any real substance, character and achievement. Much of what they promote is a actually a fake life style. But to be morally upright, to be successful in this world and successful in the next is real victory.

We are need of studying the lives of our heroes, we need people whom we can emulate and our youth can copy their footsteps. When people become living examples of the teachings of the Qur’an, this motivates many others, and turns their dreams into realities.

For this reason, Islamic Courses Online has brought to you a rare collection of the most pious and high achieving Muslims in a digestible and easy mode. In this way, we serve the cause of increasing the Muslims’ conviction to their faith. The efforts and sacrifices of these people for the sake of Allah’s religion will show us who we are and what we really are capable of when we have strong belief in Allah.
