Hitting the Nail on the Head: Dr Pasha on Islam [Quote - 242]

Dec 19, 2010

For those who really care to know what Islam is, here are some details:

  • Islam is moderation. In everything you do.

  • Islam is living in peace and amity with your neighbors. And with everyone else.

  • It is building bridges among faiths, races, nationalities, cultures and colors.

  • Islam is bringing all sorts of people together and saying something nice to and about everyone.

  • Islam is concern for the old and compassion for the young. And it is absolute and unconditional respect for women. And it is caring for the poor, the needy and the homeless.

  • And Islam is due regard for the rule of law; and for public order; and for public morality and accountability.

  • At the same time, Islam is also striving for liberty, justice, fairness and equality for all.

  • And Islam is speaking the truth, even when it may not be popular or convenient.

  • And Islam is encouraging good things and discouraging bad things.

  • And it is working to stop people from hurting or abusing other people.

  • And Islam is bringing joy, hope and comfort to those in despair.

  • And it is working to make life better for everyone in this world, friend or foe.

  • And Islam is about being the best that you can be to your own family – and to your friends.

  • And, more than anything else, Islam is loving and fearing God in heaven and loving and serving God's creation right here on earth.

  • And for those of us living in the West, as much as for anyone else living anywhere else in the world, Islam is, and always ought to be, an equal and visible and vocal partner, if not a leader, in the democratic process in the West and throughout the world at all levels.
