Moderate Islam quotes by Louis Farrakhan
#1. 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. #Quote by Louis Farrakhan
Moderate Islam quotes by Laura Thalassa
#2. But not everything is normal. After all, there's no indictation that religion exits here. Granted, I've only been at camp for a day, so maybe I just need to be patient. However, so far there have been no calls for prayer and no public sermons. I haven't seen anything that indicates which god - if any - these people believe in. The only signs of religion that I have seen are the few religious items that people wear on themselves. Other than that, it's as though God doesn't exist. #Quote by Laura Thalassa
Moderate Islam quotes by Walid Jumblatt
#3. The Islamic State is a threat to both the moderate Islam headed by Mr. Saad al-Hariri and, of course, for Hezbollah. There is a convergence, an anxiety of a common enemy ... which is good. #Quote by Walid Jumblatt
Moderate Islam quotes by Geraldo Rivera
#4. Reject racial or religious hate. Embrace moderate Islam. #Quote by Geraldo Rivera
Moderate Islam quotes by Lewis Carroll
#5. I thought you did,' said the Mouse. `--I proceed. "Edwin and Morcar, the earls of Mercia and Northumbria, declared for him: and even Stigand, the patriotic archbishop of Canterbury, found it advisable--"'

`Found WHAT?' said the Duck.

`Found IT,' the Mouse replied rather crossly: `of course you know what "it" means.'

`I know what "it" means well enough, when I find a thing,' said the Duck: `it 's generally a frog or a worm. The question is, what did the archbishop find?'

The Mouse did not notice this question, but hurriedly went on, `"--found it advisable to go with Edgar Atheling to meet William and offer him the crown. William's conduct at first was moderate. But the insolence of his Normans--" How are you getting on now, my dear?' it continued, turning to Alice as it spoke. #Quote by Lewis Carroll
Moderate Islam quotes by Abraham Lincoln
#6. That everyone may receive at least a moderate education appears to be an objective of vital importance. #Quote by Abraham Lincoln
Moderate Islam quotes by G. Willow Wilson
#7. The 'Islam vs. the West' dialogue ceased to be about real people a long time ago. #Quote by G. Willow Wilson
Moderate Islam quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
#8. Infuriatingly stupid analysts - especially people who called themselves Arabists, yet who seemed to know next to nothing about the reality of the Islamic world - wrote reams of commentary [after 9/11]. Their articles were all about Islam saving Aristotle and the zero, which medieval Muslim scholars had done more than eight hundred years ago; about Islam being a religion of peace and tolerance, not the slightest bit violent. These were fairy tales, nothing to do with the real world I knew. #Quote by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Moderate Islam quotes by Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas
#9. Islam is a religion based upon knowledge, and a denial of the possibility and objectivity of knowledge would involve the destruction of the fundamental basis upon which not only the religion, but all the sciences are rooted. #Quote by Syed Muhammad Naquib Al-Attas
Moderate Islam quotes by Oriana Fallaci
#10. 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. #Quote by Oriana Fallaci
Moderate Islam quotes by Ishtiaq Husain Qureshi
#11. Theocracy in the West is a kingdom of God where authority vests in specially ordained priests who exercise it on behalf of God. This is not the conception of Islam. Islam has no priesthood and, therefore no special agents of God to administer the law which expresses His will. #Quote by Ishtiaq Husain Qureshi
Moderate Islam quotes by Zakir Naik
#12. People who change their religion should face the death penalty. #Quote by Zakir Naik
Moderate Islam quotes by Muhammad Asad
#13. History proves beyond any possibility of doubt that no religion has ever given a stimulus to scientific progress comparable to that of Islam. The encouragement which learning and scientific research received from Islamic theology resulted in the splendid cultural achievements in the days of the Umayyads and Abbasids and the Arab rule in Sicily and Spain. I do not mention this in order that we might boast of those glorious memories at a time when the Islamic world has forsaken its own traditions and reverted to spiritual blindness and intellectual poverty. We have no right, in our present misery, to boast of past glories. But we must realize that it was the negligence of the Muslims and not any deficiency in the teachings of Islam that caused our present decay.

Islam has never been a barrier to progress and science. It appreciates the intellectual activities of man to such a degree as to place him above the angels. No other religion ever went so far in asserting the dominance of reason and, consequently, of learning, above all other manifestations of human life. #Quote by Muhammad Asad
Moderate Islam quotes by Hermann Hesse
#14. It is wrong to say that schoolmasters lack heart and are dried-up, soulless pedants! No, by no means. When a child's talent which he has sought to kindle suddenly bursts forth, when the boy puts aside his wooden sword, slingshot, bow-and-arrow and other childish games, when he begins to forge ahead, when the seriousness of the work begins to transform the rough-neck into a delicate, serious and an almost ascetic creature, when his face takes on an intelligent, deeper and more purposeful expression - then a teacher's heart laughs with happiness and pride. It is his duty and responsibility to control the raw energies and desires of his charges and replace them with calmer, more moderate ideals. What would many happy citizens and trustworthy officials have become but unruly, stormy innovators and dreamers of useless dreams, if not for the effort of their schools? In young beings there is something wild, ungovernable, uncultured which first has to be tamed. It is like a dangerous flame that has to be controlled or it will destroy. Natural man is unpredictable, opaque, dangerous, like a torrent cascading out of uncharted mountains. At the start, his soul is a jungle without paths or order. And, like a jungle, it must first be cleared and its growth thwarted. Thus it is the school's task to subdue and control man with force and make him a useful member of society, to kindle those qualities in him whose development will bring him to triumphant completion. #Quote by Hermann Hesse
Moderate Islam quotes by Umar
#15. We are a people whom Allah gave might and glory to through Islam, so we will never seek glory through anything else. #Quote by Umar
Moderate Islam quotes by Feisal Abdul Rauf
#16. Fanaticism and terrorism have no place in Islam. #Quote by Feisal Abdul Rauf
Moderate Islam quotes by Stephen Kinzer
#17. Ataturk approved of the mevlevi dervish approach to God as being 'an expression of Turkish genius' that reclaimed Islam from what he saw as hide-bound, backward Arab tradition. #Quote by Stephen Kinzer
Moderate Islam quotes by Stephen Poplin
#18. One of the distinctions that religious scholars make about various religions is the monotheistic and polytheistic world views. It seems to me that if one were to describe to a Hindu the myriad of divine beings in Christianity (and by relationship Judaism and Islam), such as angels, archangels, cherubim, seraphim, putti, Satan and his crew, Mother Mary, Jesus the son of God – who threw out demons; not to mention the saints and martyrs, who can be contacted and prayed to as divine guides, etc., I dare say this Hindu would consider the Christians polytheistic like himself. If we then include holy relics, the cunning snake and the talking fiery bush, then we are moving towards animism. Monotheism in this light is actually referring to One ruling (and jealous) god over many lesser "gods," deities, angels and souls, which is describing a polytheistic hierarchy and not monotheism.
My conclusion: there is no monotheism.
It may be heretical to say, but perhaps the Western religions have more in common with Hinduism and with the Roman or Scandinavian pantheons than they care to admit. #Quote by Stephen Poplin
Moderate Islam quotes by Anonymous
#19. If anyone seeks a religion other than Islam [submission to God], it will not be accepted from him; he will be among the losers in the Hereafter. #Quote by Anonymous
Moderate Islam quotes by Imam Junayd Al-Baghdadi
#20. The Prophet's character was termed tremendous because his concern was for God alone. #Quote by Imam Junayd Al-Baghdadi
Moderate Islam quotes by Sarah Macdonald
#21. I've learned much from the land of many gods and many ways to worship. From Buddhism the power to begin to manage my mind, from Jainism the desire to make peace in all aspects of life, while Islam has taught me to desire goodness and to let go of that which cannot be controlled. I thank Judaism for teaching me the power of transcendence in rituals and the Sufis for affirming my ability to find answers within and reconnecting me with the power of music. Here's to the Parsis for teaching me that nature must be touched lightly, and the Sikhs for the importance of spiritual strength ... And most of all, I thank Hinduism for showing me that there are millions of paths to the divine. #Quote by Sarah Macdonald
Moderate Islam quotes by Na'ima B. Robert
#22. Islam isn't like that - something you can use just to get what you want. It's a genuine spiritual commitment, a way of life... #Quote by Na'ima B. Robert
Moderate Islam quotes by Christopher Hitchens
#23. You notice how liberals keep saying, 'If only Islam would have a Reformation' - it can't have one. It says it can't. It's extremely dangerous in that way. #Quote by Christopher Hitchens
Moderate Islam quotes by Mostafa Al-Badawi
#24. Shaykha Sultana al-Zubaydiyya

Shaykha Sultana al-Zubaydiyya, famous scholar and saint, was the dauther of 'Ali al-Zubaydi, a man belonging to the martial Zubaydi clan of the tribe of Bani Haritha, itself an offshoot of the major tribe of Kinda, one of the most ancient and best known tribes of Southern Yemen.

[...] she became known as the Rabi'a of Hadramawt.

[...] Shaykha Sultana became so engrossed in her spiritual pursuits that she never found it in herself to marry and beget children as was expected of her. Instead, she visited all the great men of the valley, sitting at the back of the mosques where the gatherings were held, and listening intently until she became well known and greatly respected by them.

Mostafa al-Badawi, A blessed Valley, Volume One, Wadi Hadramawt & the Alawi Tradition, Chapter 10, S. 95-97 #Quote by Mostafa Al-Badawi
Moderate Islam quotes by Hillary Rodham Clinton
#25. The nomination of Richard Nixon cemented the ascendance of a conservative over a moderate ideology within the Republican Party, a dominance that has only grown more pronounced over the years as the party has continued its move to the right and moderates have dwindled in numbers and influence. I sometimes think that I didn't leave the Republican Party as much as it left me. I #Quote by Hillary Rodham Clinton
Moderate Islam quotes by Reza Aslan
#26. When I was in the US, I felt that the discourse there surrounding Muslims as the other, problematising Muslims and Islam as the other was very similar to what we find in Australia, which is that the image of Islam is a constructed image in the West. We are starting from a point of view that Islam and Muslims - well Islam is a violent, misogynistic, hateful religion and that is where the debate always starts from - that presumption underlies the discourse. #Quote by Reza Aslan
Moderate Islam quotes by David Rock
#27. Without this ability to stand outside your experience, without self-awareness, you would have little ability to moderate and direct your behavior moment to moment. Such real-time, goal-directed modulation of behavior is the key to acting as a mature adult. You need this capacity to free yourself from the automatic flow of experience, and to choose where to direct your attention. Without a director you are a mere automaton, driven by greed, fear, or habit. #Quote by David Rock
Moderate Islam quotes by Fazlur Rahman
#28. All evil, all injustice, all harm that one does to someone else - in sum, all deviation from man's normative nature - in a much more fundamental way and in a far more ultimate sense one does to oneself, and not just metaphorically but literally. #Quote by Fazlur Rahman
Moderate Islam quotes by Mark Sisson
#29. Instead, choose decaf for your second cup of the day, engage in good sleeping habits, moderate insulin production in your diet, exercise Primally and boost energy naturally with cold water plunges, deep breathing sequences, napping or quick exercise breaks after long periods of inactivity. #Quote by Mark Sisson
Moderate Islam quotes by Michel Houellebecq
#30. The fact is, most people live their lives without worrying too much about these supposedly philosophical questions. They think about them only when they're facing some kind of tragedy – a serious illness, the death of a loved one. At least, that's how it is in the West; in the rest of the world people die and kill in the name of these very questions, they wage bloody wars over them, and they have since the dawn of time. These metaphysical questions are exactly what men fight over, not market shares or who gets to hunt where. Even in the West, atheism has no solid basis. When I talk to people about God, I always start by lending them a book on astronomy … #Quote by Michel Houellebecq
Moderate Islam quotes by Ali Sina
#31. In Islam religion and politics cannot be separated. Unlike other religions, Islam is political by its very nature. #Quote by Ali Sina
Moderate Islam quotes by Idries Shah
#32. Saying of the Prophet
Nobody has eaten better food than that won by his own labour. #Quote by Idries Shah
Moderate Islam quotes by Alija Izetbegovic
#33. We have no rational evidence that there exits another world, but we have a clear feeling that man does not exist only to produce and to consume. #Quote by Alija Izetbegovic
Moderate Islam quotes by Pope Francis
#34. In this work (peace building), the role of religion is fundamental. It is not possible to build bridges between people while forgetting God, ... But the converse is also true: it is not possible to establish true links with God while ignoring other people. Hence it is important to intensify dialogue among the various religions, and I am thinking particularly of dialogue with Islam. #Quote by Pope Francis
Moderate Islam quotes by Ivan Krastev
#35. The United States and Russia probably do not have common aims and dreams, but they have common worries: Both Washington and Moscow are concerned about the rise of China and are threatened by the rise of radical Islam. #Quote by Ivan Krastev
Moderate Islam quotes by Jane Austen
#36. How earnestly did she then wish that her former opinions had been more reasonable, more moderate! #Quote by Jane Austen
Moderate Islam quotes by Epictetus
#37. Remember that you must behave as at a banquet. Is anything brought round to you? Put out your hand, and take a moderate share. Does it pass you? Do not stop it. Is it not come yet? Do not yearn in desire towards it, but wait till it reaches you. So with regard to children , wife, office, riches; and you will some time or other be worthy to feast with the gods. And if you do not so much as take the things which are set before you, but are able even to forego them, then you will not only be worthy to feast with the gods, but to rule with them also. For, by thus doing, Diogenes and Heraclitus, and others like them, deservedly became divine, and were so recognized. #Quote by Epictetus
Moderate Islam quotes by Guillaume Faye
#38. Whether we like it or not, Islam has entered its third phase of conquest, towards the 'Universal Caliphate'. The first two phases happened in the Seventh to the Eleventh centuries, as well as in the Sixteenth to the Eighteenth centuries. It is a question of a groundswell that the governments of Islamic countries, which are pro-Western out of temporary calculation, cannot disguise for long. Islam's principal weapon is its demographic vigour, in the face of Western countries that are experiencing depopulation. This confrontation will cover the planet and will usually take the form of civil war, with episodes of classic war. #Quote by Guillaume Faye
