“Islam has taught us that in spite of their racial, linguistic and cultural differences, human beings share the same nature, which calls them to purity, justice, benevolence, compassion and cooperation. It is this universal human nature which – if it can safely steer away from misleading motives – guides human beings to monotheism and understanding of God’s transcendent essence.”

Serving the Family

Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him And His Progeny):
“Serving the family is considered to be expiation for major sins. It will quench the Lord’s wrath, and be considered as the nuptial gift for the ‘Houris’ [women in heaven]. It will be a cause of raised ranks, and increased, recorded good-deeds.”
(Jami’ al-Sa’adat, v.2, p.142)

Food of Body and Food of Mind; Which is More Important?

Imam Ali (the first Imam of Shia Muslims):

“I am amazed at the people who turn on the light to see what they eat when they want to dine in the dark, but do not care about food for their mind. They do not care to illuminate their intellect with the light of knowledge to be safe from making mistakes out of ignorance and wrong beliefs.”
(Safinah al-Bihar, v.2, p.84)
