Spiritual values

Dale Carnegie

American Author

Spiritual values

“I am tremendously interested in what religion does for me, just as I am interested in what electricity and good food and water do for me. They help me to lead a richer, fuller, happier life; however, religion does far more than that. It brings me spiritual values and gives me, as William James puts it, ‘a new zest for life … a life which is full, an easier, richer, and more satisfying life.’ It gives me faith, hope, and courage. It banishes tensions, anxieties, fears, and worries. It gives purpose to my life and direction. It vastly improves my happiness. It gives me abounding health. It helps me to create for myself ‘an oasis of peace amidst the whirling sands of life.’”

Onwards towards God

Marx Planck

Founder of the Quantam Theory

Onwards towards God

“There is a steady, ongoing, never-slackening fight against skepticism and dogmatism, against unbelief and superstition, which religion and science together wage. The directing watchword in this struggle runs from the remotest past to the distant future: ‘Onwards towards God!’ ”

Islam is peace and safety

Naseem Sousa

An Iraqi-Jewish Lecturer

Islam is peace and safety

“Under the banner of Islam Jews found safety and justice which protect them from the evils of persecution and abuse. Many centuries have passed for them while they live in well-being and wealth.”

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 best of systems

Herbert George Wells

British Author and Writer

The best of systems

“Islam prevailed because it was the best social and political order that the times could offer. It prevailed because everywhere it found politically apathetic peoples; robbed, oppressed, bullied, uneducated and unorganized, and it found selfish and unsound governments which were out of touch with any of its people at all. It was the broadest, freshest and cleanest political idea that had yet come into actual activity in the world, and it offered better terms than any other to the masses of mankind.”

God has no partner

Thomas Carlyle

Scottish Author and Historian

God has no partner

“There is no god but the One God, alone with no partner. He is the Truth, and everything else is falsehood. He created and blessed us. Islam is to submit ourselves to God, to yield and totally surrender to Him and to put our trust in Him. Power, all power, lies in following His Wisdom, and to be satisfied with what He has ordained, whatever it may be in this world and in the Hereafter. Whatever God causes to happen to us, even if it was a violent death, we must receive it with a delighted face and a satisfied soul, and know that it is good and that there is no good in anything except in what happened. It is absurd that man makes his tiny brain a balance of the world and its conditions. Rather, he has to believe that the universe has a fair law that controls it, though absent from his perception, and that goodness is the basis of the universe, and righteousness is the essence of existence... He should know that and believe and follow it in calmness and piety.”

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.”

Miracles of the universe

Deborah Potter

American Journalist

Miracles of the universe

“How could Muhammad, an unlettered man who grew up in an environment of ignorance, know the miracles of the universe described by the Qur’an which modern science is still to this day seeking to discover?! These words then must be the words of Almighty Allah.”

The eternal project

Murad Wilfried Hofmann

German Ambassador

The eternal project

“Islam is the alternative life with an eternal project that never wears off or has an end to its validity. If someone sees it as old, it is also modern and futuristic, not limited by either time or place, for Islam is not an intellectual wave or a fashion, and it can wait... Do not rule out the fact that the East will return to lead the world culturally, for the saying: ‘light comes from the East’ is still a true one.”

Be deep

Dale Carnegie

American Writer

Be deep

“The Philosopher, Francis Beacon, was right when he said: ‘It is true that a little philosophy inclines man’s mind to atheism; but a deep study of philosophy brings man’s mind to religion.’”
