One of the reasons why many do not participate in the Islamic projects is because they are afraid of failure. Some others do not get involved because they are not sure of the impact of their efforts. Lastly, there is a group of believers who expect instant gratification and overnight results of their efforts; when they don’t see that happening, they drop out and stop contributing their efforts to strengthen Islamic projects. What exactly should our mindset be when we get involved or start any Islamic project? Ayatollah Misbah Yazdi extracts a lesson from Karbala and explains this phenomenon.
