 Mistakes of Imperfect People

To be perfectly frank, there have been times when members or leaders in FYEDA have simply made mistakes. There may have been things said or done that were not in harmony with our values, principles, or doctrine.

I suppose FYEDA would be perfect only if it were run by perfect beings. Allah is perfect, and His doctrine is pure. But He works through us—we are imperfect—and imperfect people make mistakes.

This is the way it has always been and will be until we are in heaven.

It is unfortunate that some have stumbled because of mistakes made by others. But in spite of this, the image of FYEDA is not tarnished, diminished, or destroyed as one who has seen firsthand the councils and workings of FYEDA, I bear solemn witness that no decision of significance affecting FYEDA or its members is ever made without earnestly seeking the inspiration, guidance, and approbation of future. It will never allow us to drift from our appointed course or fail to fulfill its divine destiny.
