Conclusive Answers

“I found conclusive answers in Islam for the dilemma of the spirit and matter, and I discovered that the body has a right on us, exactly as the soul has, and that physical needs in the eyes of Islam are natural instincts that deserve gratification for a human to live strongly, productively and effectively. Islam, however, has set basic rules for gratifying these needs on a sound basis that attains satisfaction for the self and, at the same time, enables one to abide by Allah’s commands. Marriage in Islam is, for example, the only legitimate way to satisfy the sexual instinct. Prayer, fasting, worship and belief in Allah are also ways to satisfy the spiritual side of man. Thus, a balance is attained that is essential for a dignified human life.”

There is a vast difference between this and that

NajimuRamoni

Ghanian missionary

There is a vast difference between this and that

“I had no choice of comparison between the principle of the Oneness of God in the Qur’anic perception and my belief in the Christian trinity. I found that the latter principle is much lower than the Islamic principle, and due to that particular point, I began to lose confidence in the Christian religion on the grounds that faith in God is the first and most important principle in any religion. If my faith in God is wrong in the correct religious sense, this means that any other activities become vain, useless and meaningless. “

The age of anxiety

Dr. Rene Dubos

Nobel Prize-winning Scientist

The age of anxiety

“We live in an age of anxiety, and there is no doubt that scientific and technological achievements have increased man’s well-being and prosperity, but in turn it has not increased his happiness and contentment. Rather, it has increased his anxiety, despair and psychological trauma that have deprived him of beautiful meanings in this life.”

Fill the spiritual vacuum

Jeffrey Lang

American Mathematician

Fill the spiritual vacuum

“In a special moment in my life, God bestowed His Wide Knowledge and Mercy over me, after I had suffered much agony and pain, and after finding the great readiness to fill the spiritual vacuum in myself; I became a Muslim. Before Islam, I did not know in my life the meaning of love. When I read the Qur’an, however, I felt an overwhelming large outpouring of compassion and kindness. I began to feel the everlastingness of love in my heart. What led me to Islam is the love of God which cannot be resisted.”

Passion for culture

Stanly Lane-Pool

British Scientist

Passion for culture

“Never, in the history of civilization, was there a movement more impressive than the sudden passion for culture that took place all over the Muslim world. Every Muslim, from the Muslim Caliph (Muslim ruler) to the workman, all seemed as if they had suddenly been hit by a longing for knowledge and a thirst for travel. That was the best thing, in all respects, that was introduced by Islam. Seekers of knowledge rushed to such centers as Baghdad, and then later to other centers that were the cradle of arts and sciences, similar to the modern trend of European scientists who swarmed universities seeking new knowledge, but it was even more magnificent than it.”

We do not differentiate between any of them

Bashir Shaad

Indian Preacher

We do not differentiate between any of them

“The Qur’an is the only book that recognizes all the heavenly books, while all the others reject one another.”

The religion of safety

Anatoly Ondrboutc

Russian General

The religion of safety

“For the first time in my life I felt safe and secure, and that there is value to my life. I finally knew the meaning of a God who you do not see, but sees you wherever you are. He is watching over your actions and weighing them with a just balance so you will receive your right requital on the Day of Resurrection.”
