I am not inspired by the presented ... "images" and "portraitures" ... I have to "know" my Inspirer, thoroughly well, to be inspired !
Because, the meanings of the word "Inspirer" ... in my lexicon is ... Muhammad, the last Prophet of God. Peace and Blessings of Allah be Upon him.
For he, by his Actions, has re-defined the "Native" human Values ... "Influenced" human Perception of Reality, to an extent, that all Muslim Thinking and Actions ... are Reflection, of his Thinking and Actions.
Within this benchmark ... I have been inspired variously, by many persons in the sundry disciplines of life ... and ... many continue to inspire me ...
Thus ... I have primarily been inspired by my teachers ... my Father and Mother, my wife and children ... as a child, inspired by Qari Muhammad Yusuf Dehlavi, God Bless him ... he "taught" me how to understand the Koran ...
I have also been by Time, Circumstance and Experiences ... my professors, Dr. Mazhar Ali Khan, D.Litt. Cantab., Dr. Mumtaz Ali, Ph.D., Professor Hasan Askari ... authors, P.G. Wodehouse, Shafiq ur Rehman and Shaukat Thanvi ... et.al..
The List is endless ... for I continue to Learn, right up to this moment ... and will do so ... till the last breath of my life ... This Inspiration is from Muhammad ... making it mandatory upon Muslims to seek knowledge throughout Life.
