AL-IHSAN, HOW THE TERM DERIVED
Al-ihsan means excellence, beautification and perfection. The name derived from the Quranic and Prophet’s usages. The Holy Quran repeatedly insists to be excellent in our dealings with the creator and His creations. As far as a Muslim concerned (the one who submits his will to his Creator), all his actions to be qualified as a rewardable obedience, it should be observed with a sincere intention and excellence. It is not only our five articles of Islam and six articles of Faith to be performed with strict balance and steadfastness, but all our inside and outside movement from our birth until our parting from the world should correspond with the mindedness and consciousness of our Creator.
Secondly, our interaction with our fellow human beings should reflect the sublime character and features of our Creator. From an Islamic perspective, all humans are vice grants of Allah, our Lord. We are told to take that ultimate responsibility on the day of Covenant. To fulfil that divinely commanded responsibility on Earth, one should resemble His lofty features including His mercy, benevolence, compassion, kindness, genericity and so on towards our fellow creations. This perpetual consciousness with our Lord and beautiful companionship with our fellow creations should accompany with excellence, beautification and perfection, in other words, with IHSAN. With this sublime purpose in mind, our peers reflectively named our organisation AL-IHSAN.
