Title : Personality Development in Islam and its Effects on Nations and Civilizations
By Sheikh Salman b. Fahd al-Oudah
The individual is the basic element from which all principles and beliefs are brought forth, and upon which all nations and civilizations are built. If a nation is successful in developing its people as strong and complete individuals, then, with Allah's help, it will be able to realize a glorious future for itself. It will also be able to promote and defend its religion and its beliefs. If, on the other hand, a nation fails to develop its individual members, or if its people are deficient in carrying out some of the activities of life, then that nation is doomed to weakness, destruction, and obscurity.
