The blessings of R4BIA have been spreading rapidly around the world, and they bring with them a new spirit, fresh ideas and a novel sense of brotherhood. Conscientious human beings in more than 30 nations, who stand against all kinds of injustice and inequity, express themselves through the R4BIA sign, flag, logo and slogans. An act of mercy roves the earth in full flood, an act which is diverse in ethnicity, color, sect, and faith, but remains united around the same sign.
Lately this blessing is accompanied by a tune. People are humming along a melody that seems to travel everywhere. It is fast turning into a wave of music flourishing of its own accord – like the R4BIA movement - and growing on everyone that hears it.
The lyrics of the tune belong to the great Egyptian scholar and thinker Professor Sayyid Qutb. He was locked behind bars between 1954-65 in the most horrific jail in Egypt, Tora Prison, where Muslim Brotherhood leaders are held today.
