o   The main problem of the Muslims is their drifting away from Islam and

the Qur'an.

o   If the nations would become aware of Islam, they will realize that

whatever they seek exists in Islam.

o   All the havoc wrought on this country has come from persons who had no

understanding of Islam.

o   Those who have malicious view of Islam are those who have no

understanding of Islam.

o   I advise you not to part ways with Islam; do not separate your path from

that of the clergy. Do not lose this divine power, this power of the clergy which is a divine power.
