Thomas Arnold


  • A religion with no place for caprice
  • “On the contrary, one of the reasons for the warm welcome which Muhammad received in Medina would seem to be that the adoption of Islam appeared to the more thoughtful of its citizens as a remedy for the disorders from which their society was suffering, due to its orderly discipline of life and its bringing the unruly passions of men under the discipline of laws enunciated by an authority superior to individual caprice.”

  • Believers are brothers
  • “The Islamic Ideal of the brotherhood of all believers is one of the factors that attracted people strongly towards this faith.”
