About the Book
"It is important in this present day that the children of Adam clearly understand the true meaning of Islam. We must know the value of its purity, of its peacefulness, its unity, its sincerity, its honesty, and the value of its conscience and justice and truth..."
"Islam is equality, peacefulness, and unity. Islam is inner patience, contentment, trust in God, and praise of God. One who understands this and puts it into practice will be a true believer...."
"Allah has asked mankind to accept this, to find freedom, and to raise the flag of unity on the tree of love."
—M. R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen
"Read this book...as Rumi tells us to read: Feel the presence inside the language, the healing and the compassion and the tremendous courtesy"
—Coleman Barks, Poet, Translator, Author of The Essential Rumi
"I hope that many people read the warm, loving words of Bawa Muhaiyaddeen and understand that indeed the words islam and salam"—peace—belong to the same root and that a true understanding of the inner dimensions of Islam will help them to find peace for themselves..."
—Annemarie Schimmell, Professor of Indo-Muslim Culture, Harvard University
"At a time when Islam is being identified so much in the West with war and conflict, it is urgent that the message of this book be heard...for it relates Islam to the peace and serenity which has always been at the heart of its message."
—Dr. Seyyed Hossein Nasr, Professor of Islamic Studies, George Washington University
"...A rich work, full of incredible insights on the present state of the world."
—Victor Danner, Professor of Religious Studies, Indiana University
