My name is John, and this site is Sabiqun.

Sabiqun means vanguard, or the forefront of a political or intellectual movement. It can also mean the front of the army. Both of these meanings are used to interpret the meaning of the quote from the Koran that Sabiqun comes from.

“The vanguard (of Islam) – the first of those who forsook (their homes) and of Those who gave them aid and (also) Those who follow them in good deeds. – Well pleased is Allah them. As they are with Him. For them hath He prepared Gardens under which rivers flow. To dwell therein for ever. That is the Supreme Felicity.”
