It is only recently that many courageous scholars and public servants began to tell what the real Islam was. Guru Nanak wrote hundreds of hymns in the Sikh scripture on who is a good Muslim. I am glad to see the recent book by Mike Ghouse. Mike began nearly 15 years ago to set the stage right. He started with a radio show on the world’s religions. I remember my frequent participation there and answering Mike’s piercing questions. Then he contributed hundreds of columns in leading newspapers and magazines. Now, he came up with his book that elucidates the purpose of religion in general and the role of Islam in particular as a member of the community of faiths. I recommend this book to the Muslim community and their neighbors who are the followers of other religions. In facts, the adherents of other religions might consider Mike’s approach in spreading the sacred words of the founders of their beliefs.
Book will be out for Christmas
The publication is delayed further – the editorial staff was correcting the grammar in the 100 plus translated verses, and I am redoing them all again in the following format. I wanted to produce the translations as translated.
Islam in a nutshell
Rabbi Hillel was asked to explain the essence of religion; he said, “What is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor. That is the whole Torah; the rest is the explanation of this-go and study it!”
I would say, the following about Islam, “If you can learn to respect the otherness of the other, and accept the God-given uniqueness of each one of us (49:13), that is the whole truth about Islam and the rest is the explanation of this – go and study it.”
Given the prevalent anti-Muslim attitudes, I have proudly asserted my Muslimness in the book, and bring Americans together and firm up the process of acceptance of Muslims as fellow Americans.
Sean Hannity of Fox News will be our catalyst in releasing the book, that means a massive reach out to the right-leaning men and women. Instead of running away from them, we must positively engage with them. This book would be a bridge for Muslims.
I hope it is your vision to see an America where each one of us is comfortable with our faith, race, ethnicity, and culture, and our children and grandchildren can live without worries about the conflicts with fellow Americans. If that is your dream as well, you may find the pleasure in supporting the Center for Pluralism.
