“The Great East” is the act of crystallization of the criteria pertaining to all branches of the life, which is worth of living, with reference to Islam. “The Great East” is far from being committed to a particular race or a geography; on the contrary, it is desirous to realize it in the frame of time, not only in space. With the statement of the Architect of “The Great East”:

“The Great East, the adjutant of Islam… The Great East, neither a new madhhab in Islam, nor a new doorway of ijtihad… Yet just a passageway of making way for Islam with its utmost purity and originality within such an absolute and not-haggled frame that is expressed by the phrase “Ahl-i Sunnah w’al-Jamaah.”; and the act of application of this purity and originality, lost for a long time, to things and events in the verge of 21st century… And which is apparently the most valuable and costly one of the works…”
