I am but a human like you

Henry Serouya

French Orientalist

I am but a human like you

“Muhammad is a true historical figure. Without him Islam would not have been able to extend and increase. He never hesitated to repeat that he was a human like others, doomed to death, and that he asked forgiveness from God Almighty. Before his death, he wanted to cleanse his conscience of any slip-up he might have committed. He stood on the pulpit and announced: ‘O Muslims, if I had hit anyone, this is my back for him to take revenge, or if I unlawfully took anyone’s money, then my money is his.’ “

God is True

“If you study science deep enough and long enough, it will force you to believe in God.”

A Religion for the Entire Human Race

A Religion for the Entire Human Race

“The two Verses: [Indeed, the religion in the sight of Allah is Islam] (al-Imran- 19) and [And We have not sent you (O Muhammad) except as a giver of glad tidings and a warner to all mankind, but most of men know not.] (Saba’- 28).These two great verses left a dramatic impact on me because they contain evidence of this global nature which characterizes Islam, as well as what distinguishes it from other legislative systems and its clear statement of the reality of Prophet Jesus. Is there then any stronger and truer teachings than the liberal teachings that direct us to respect everything brought by all the messengers and prophets?! There is no doubt that Islam is the religion of truth, honesty and clear evidence. “

A great difference between them

Nasri Salhab

Lebanese Author

A great difference between them

“There is no religion like Islam, where honoring the prophets and messengers who preceded the Arab Prophet is concerned. Islam obliges its believers to honor these prophets and messengers and believe in them. Moreover, there is no religion like Islam where respecting other heavenly revealed religions that preceded it is concerned.”

The masjid is a university

Stanly Lane-Pool

British Scientist

The masjid is a university

“Mosques were - and some of them still are –the universities of Islam. They were swarmed with students who were completely filled with a desire for knowledge. They came to listen to the lectures of scholars on the sciences of religion, law, philosophy, medicine and sports. The scholars themselves came from all over the Arab speaking world, and they welcomed all students, whatever their nationalities were.”

The religion of dignity and honour

The religion of dignity and honour

“Islam is a religion of safety, equality, freedom, fraternity, dignity and pride. This is clearly evident in its laws, principles and conduct. Fasting in Islam is not like fasting in other religions, because the problem of the person is not to just suppress the desires of his body, as monks do, until the body of one of them becomes like a moving skeleton. Islam disciplines the bodily desires and does not repress them. Fasting in Islam entails making the soul accustomed to maintaining patience and jihad against the sinful and forbidden desires, to observe God in secret and in public, and to taste deprivation and hunger, so as to become sympathetic towards the disadvantaged. Fasting is also a chance to give the body a break from satiety for this break is good for people where their health, soul and mind is concerned, and for the society to grow closer in its cooperation and unity. “

Of the signs of prophet-hood

American Correspondent

Of the signs of prophet-hood

“How could Muhammad, the illiterate man who grew up in an environment of ignorance, know the miracles of the universe described by the Qur’an, and which modern science is still to this day seeking to discover?! It must then be that these words are God Almighty’s.”

The Religion of this world and the Hereafter

Bernard Shaw

English Writer

The Religion of this world and the Hereafter

“A learned man naturally inclines to Islam because it is the only religion that considers matters of both this world and the Hereafter.”

Justice and fairness

William Montgomery Watt

British Orientalist

Justice and fairness

“His readiness to undergo persecution for his beliefs, the high moral character of the men who believed in him and looked up to him as a leader, and the greatness of his ultimate achievement - all indicate his fundamental integrity. To suppose Muhammad was an impostor raises more problems than it solves. Moreover, none of the great figures of history are so poorly appreciated in the West as is Muhammad.”

Worship is a Comprehensive Concept

“The Prophet (peace be upon him) said: ‘If the Last Hour comes while one of you has a palm seedling in his hand which he can plant before it (the hour) falls, let him plant it.’” (Narrated by Musnad Ahmad) “They said, ‘O Messenger of Allah, when one of us fulfills his carnal desire will he have some reward for that?’ He (peace be upon him) said, ‘Do you not see that if he were to act upon it [his desire] in an unlawful manner then he would be deserving of punishment? Likewise, if he were to act upon it in a lawful manner then he will be deserving of a reward.’” (Narrated by Muslim)
