Actually, in its purest form, Islam is incredibly tolerant. That makes what's going on in the world really bizarre.
Steve Earle

All people hope Islam helps everything in life. Islam will make jobs. Islam will make freedom. Islam will make everything.
Ahmed Ali

All too many Muslims fail to grasp Islam, which teaches one to be lenient towards others and to understand their value systems, knowing that these are tolerated by Islam as a religion.
Abdurrahman Wahid

America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition. Instead, they overlap, and share common principles of justice and progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings.
Barack Obama

As a result of that, America desires a moderate Islam; an Islam that America can control; an Islam that America can give direction to and give orders to its leaders.
Louis Farrakhan

Because Islam in its original form was tough and hard, not weak and pliable.
Abu Bakar Bashir

Beside all this I think there was something personal, being Muslim myself who lived in the west I felt that it was my obligation my duty to tell the truth about Islam. It is a religion that has a 700 million following, yet it's so little known about it which surprised me.
Moustapha Akkad

But the West is trying to weaken Islam from outside and inside. They attack our people and invade our countries from outside, and they weaken us from within with ideas like secularism, liberalism and democracy. This is all designed to contaminate our pure Islam.
Abu Bakar Bashir

But when I reintroduced the Nation of Islam, and began to host meetings in cities and thousands and thousands of people come out.
Louis Farrakhan

Come forward as servants of Islam, organise the people economically, socially, educationally and politically and I am sure that you will be a power that will be accepted by everybody.
Muhammad Ali Jinnah

Establishing an equilibrium between the Islam of truth and Islam as an identity is one of the most difficult tasks of religious intellectuals.
Abdolkarim Soroush

Europe is no longer Europe, it is Eurabia, a colony of Islam, where the Islamic invasion does not proceed only in a physical sense, but also in a mental and cultural sense.
Oriana Fallaci

Every fundamentalist movement I've studied in Judaism, Christianity and Islam is convinced at some gut, visceral level that secular liberal society wants to wipe out religion.
Karen Armstrong

Fortunately, historians are now beginning to recognise the historic role of Islam as a liberating force for peoples oppressed by the burdens of unjust social systems.
Aly Khan

Having embraced Islam, I felt as if I were born again. I found in Islam the answers to those queries which I had failed to find in Christianity.
Jermaine Jackson

However, those who have used those words use half the sentence to fit their purpose, which, of course, I believe is to discredit me and the new Nation of Islam that has come up around me.
Louis Farrakhan

I am ready to sacrifice everything in completing the unfinished agenda of our noble jihad... until there is no bloodshed in Afghanistan and Islam becomes a way of life for our people.
Mohammed Omar

I am totally against the idea that a Muslim woman should not have the same opportunities as a Muslim man to learn, to open up, to work, help shape the future. To close Islam down to a sexist approach is totally intolerable and ridiculous. It's not Islam.
King Hussein I

I believe in the religion of Islam. I believe in Allah and peace.
Muhammad Ali

I consider it part of my responsibility as President of the United States to fight against negative stereotypes of Islam wherever they appear.
Barack Obama


Is Jummah, the day we go to the Masjid, listen to the khutbah and go back, home, to work, to school or just go back.
If you are ask what the Imam spoke about? Would you be able to tell anyone? Would you be able to carry out the topic in to your daily life. In sha Allah, we all listen and we and we leave the Masjid with a firm reminder in our hearts.
How many times you hear the Imam talk about the same subjects, and when you look around we are doing the same thing over and over.
Some examples are: stop adding extensions to your hair, stop having fake nails and nail polish on. Don’t wear perfume outside the home, stop wearing fit abayas. When is these warnings are going to mean something to us, to you? When are we going to understand the consequences of our actions?
You try to tell a sister about these issues and she takes offence to them and the first thing she will say is: “Who are you to judge me?” I am not judging you. I am doing what any Muslimah who loves her sister for the sake of Allah Tallah will do. Command that which is good, and forbid that wich is evil, bad, haram. Stop been so sensitive, if you know you are wrong just take it with a grain of salt and shut up. Walk away and read to find more information about hijab, do’s and don’ts.
I am not here to point fingers at anyone. I am here to remind you to be obedient to Allah Tallah, or at least strive to become a better Muslimah.
We should look after each other, bringing any subject to the table. With no fear of retaliation. Talk to your sister, counsel her. And avoid backbiting her. Make sure when you correct your sister do so in private, make her feel respected. You will not like someone to correct your mistakes in public, because I don’t
