"Love is the affinity which links and
draws together the elements of the world... Love, in fact, is the agent
of universal synthesis."
Since the aftermath of September
11, a dark cloud of distrust has appeared in the great American nation
which has suddenly, it seems, turned on itself in its own perpetual
conflict. As a result, many are being harmed, and many are harmed—on
both ends—as victims and victimizers at home and abroad.
Often, it takes more than dialogue to heal the distrust—it takes actions. Actions count for a lot, but rarely when they don’t work, as time tells, we have to go to a higher place—that of the light of wisdom itself. Wisdom heals the psyche like the comfort and security of a light turned on in the dreaded darkness. Wisdom is the light of many a great civilization—and it is at this level, we would like to introduce to you the light of America and Islam.
The light we find in America, is the same that we find in Islam. This means the Islamic principles of Brotherhood, i.e., the Human Family are the same as the American Founding principles. It is known that Thomas Jefferson had a copy of the Quran in his own library. Could the American forefathers have had a clear understanding of Islam to have brought it forward into the founding principles of America herself? We say yes, for when compared side by side, they fit perfectly.
So, it is at this level, the
light of wisdom, we endeavor to heal the psyche of a whole nation—that
it return to its founding pattern of peace, brotherhood, freedom and
unity in diversity—that it may, through its Constitutionally declared
intent of “a more perfect union” attain “the last stage of Human
perfection.” Those were the words of George Washington—as only a
Founding Father could wish for the nation.
We invite all Muslims and fellow
Americans to share the wisdom of America and Islam—no longer as enemies,
but one of the same in the delight of discovery with each other.
