Roger Du Pasquier

A Swiss Journalist and Thinker

  • The religion of happiness and tranquility

    “I used to ask myself: why do Muslims feel overwhelming happiness in their lives despite their poverty and backwardness?! And why do the Swedes feel miserable and distressed despite their ease in living, prosperity and progress?! Even in my country, Switzerland, I used to feel the same as I felt in Sweden, although it is also a prosperous country and the standard of living there is high!! Faced with all that, I found that I needed to study eastern religions, and I began to study Hinduism, but not convinced of it very much, I started to study Islam. What attracted me to Islam was that it does not conflict with other religions, rather it accommodates all of them; because it is the seal of all the religions. My realization of this fact began broadening with the widening of my readings, until it was firmly fixed in my mind.”
