Dear friends and supporters, I was reading the definition of the word, “volunteerism”, it inspired me to collect a list of quotes from Holy Quran, our Prophet (PBUH), Imam’s and other famous individuals. I wanted to share this work with you, hoping that as it inspired me will make you remember and celebrate the spirit of volunteering that shapes our lives, our communities and our nation. As Imam Ali taught us, “look at what is being said, not who is saying it”. Enjoy and if inspired, volunteer at ICCNC. First thing first, a definition of the word “volunteerism”:
the policy or practice of volunteering one’s time or talents for charitable, educational, or other worthwhile activities, especially in one’s community.
