Constancy. It is a Quranic virtue. A mark of dedication and commitment. Many of us get involved in voluntary activism for the cause of Islam, bringing to it our passion and good intentions… but over time, we find it a challenge to keep on working and doing as regularly as we would like.

Drawing on many years of hands-on experience, Sajid examines reasons why people ‘disappear’ from voluntary activism.  He will look at anecdotal instances and take from Islamic teachings to look at potential challenges we all face. Discussing the question of why some people ‘give up’ will help us enhance our own personal commitment, whatever we do.
