The Qur’an is the final heavenly revealed book

Bashir Shaad

Hindu missionary

The Qur’an is the final heavenly revealed book

“When I believed in monotheism I began looking for arguments and evidence to prove that the Qur’an is the book of God and that it is the last of the divine books and their seal, and I thank God as He made me able to solve this issue. The Qur’an is the only book that recognizes all of the other heavenly books, whereas they all deny each other, and this, in fact, is one of the characteristics and advantages of the Qur’an.”

The world is heading toward suicide

MarmadukePickthall

An English Thinker and Author

The world is heading toward suicide

“The West is now in great need of Islam, more than at any other time before. Islam can give life a meaning and history a sense. It can alter the West’s method of separating science from wisdom, thinking from the means, and thinking from the results. Islam never erects a wall between science and faith. On the contrary, it ties them together as an inseparable whole.. Islam can revive the hope in our western societies, which are split apart by individuality to such an extent that they are pulling the whole world towards suicide.”

Religion is life

Arnold Toynbee

British Historian

Religion is life

“Religion is one of the indispensable human faculties. It suffices to say that lacking religion pushes a human being to a state of spiritual despondency. It drives him to seek spiritual consolation from those who possess nothing of that sort.”

The religion of humanity

Martin Lings

English Thinker

The religion of humanity

“I found myself , which I had missed all my life, in Islam. I felt at that moment that I was human for the first time, because it is a religion that takes the human being back to his nature, as it is consistent with human nature.”

Belief and anxiety never meet

William James

American Philosopher

Belief and anxiety never meet

“The turning ocean waves never disturb the calmness of the deep ocean bed and do not trouble its state of peace and security. Similarly, it is difficult for one who has really deepened his faith in God to be troubled. He keeps his balance and is always ready to face whatever changes days might bring about”

A good life

Ignaz Goldziher

Hungarian Islamic Studies Scholar of Jewish descent

A good life

“If we want to be fair in relation to Islam, we should agree that in its teachings there is an effective force that pushes people towards good, and that life according to the teachings of this force can be morally impeccable. These teachings require one to show mercy to all of God’s creation, honesty in people’s relationships to each other, love and devotion, as well as to suppress the instincts of selfishness, just as it requires other virtues as well. The result of all this is that a good Muslim lives a life consistent with the most detailed requirements of morality. “

Happiness is so close to us

Tolstoy

Russian Writer

Happiness is so close to us

“We often search for happiness, while it is so close to us, just as we search for our glasses when they are already placed on our head.”

The religion and worldly matters together

Michael Hart

American Writer

The religion and worldly matters together

It is this unparalleled combination of the secular and religious influence which I feel entitles Muhammad (pbuh) to be considered to be the most influential single figure in human history.”

The status of the Qur’an and its virtues

Will Durant

American Author

The status of the Qur’an and its virtues

“The Qur’an has continued to be preserved in the memory of Muslims for fourteen centuries, provoking their imagination, forming their morality, and sharpening the wits of hundreds of millions of people. The Qur’an resurrects in the souls the easiest of faiths since it is the least ambiguous and it is the furthest from adhering to nonsensical ceremonies and rituals. It is a faith that is free of paganism and clergy. The Qur’an has uplifted the moral and cultural level of Muslims and established the rules of social order and unity in them, and evoked them to follow the rules of health. It also freed their minds of the many myths and illusions, as well as of injustice and cruelty. It also improved the conditions of slaves, and put dignity and pride in the hearts of the submissive.”

Reason and logic

Harun Mustafa Lyon

Britich Linguist

Reason and logic

“One of the traits of Islam is that it is based on mental aptitude. It does not call its followers to kill their divine intellectual abilities. Islam also loves research and inquiry. It calls its followers to study, search and consider before believing. Islam supports the wise saying: ‘prove the soundness of everything, then adhere to the good.’ This is not surprising since wisdom is the quest of a believer and, wherever he finds it, he is the most deserving to have it. Islam is the religion of reason and logic. We find, therefore, that the first word revealed to Prophet Muhammad was ‘read’. We also find that the motto of Islam is the call to ponder and reflect before believing. Islam is the truth and its weapon is knowledge, and its arch-enemy is ignorance. “
