Conversations with History at Berkeley

Conversations host Harry Kreisler welcomes Oxford University Professor Tariq Ramadan for a discussion of his new book, "What I Believe."

Reflecting on the formative experiences of his life, Professor Ramadan traces the influence of his family, his education in Western philosophy and Islamic studies, and the impact of his different careers including high school principal, philosopher, and Islamic scholar.


He explains what it means to be a religious reformer and characterizes his work as a bridge builder between the Islamic world and the West. Articulating his commitment to universal principles and resistance to inequality, Ramadan analyzes the tensions facing Muslims in an era of globalization as they strive to be fully engaged as citizens committed to Western values.


Professor Ramadan also discusses his perspective on women's rights and the controversy over the building of a mosque near the World Trade Center.

Want to change the world? Build your mind

Tariq Ramadan’s 7 Cs of Seeking Knowledge

Students, be careful!

The Prophet (peace be upon him) was asking "O Allah, we are asking you useful knowledge”.

By meaning this you have to understand that knowledge is but a means. Never worship knowledge.

Use knowledge as a means towards Allah, but don’t start by worshiping knowledge per se. If you are doing this you are going to be used or misled. You know what the Chinese proverb says? “When the wise man is pointing out to the moon, the crazy guy is looking at the finger”; the foolish is looking at the finger.

Worship Allah and use your knowledge in order to worship better. But don’t be obsessed with your non-stop desire to gain knowledge and the idea that if someone has knowledge you are going to respect him not as a means towards Allah but as someone you start to hold as sacred or worshiping. This is wrong.

Scholars are at the Service of Their Communities

The scholars of this community are at the service of their community. Why?

Because they are showing the path towards Allah. We are all here to worship not to serve ourselves or to be served by the community...

Western Muslims: From Integration to Contribution

Tariq Ramadan: EU Muslims or Muslims in Europe?

I was asked to speak about a certain topic. Do we have to speak about being European Muslims or being Muslims in Europe?

And I think it’s not by accident, 15 years ago when I first wrote a book to be a European Muslim I got some reactions from my fellow Muslims saying: “No you have to say being a Muslim in Europe”.

I say “No I’m European by culture, and I’m a Muslim by religion so I’m a European Muslim”. So it’s not to be a Muslim somewhere else. This is home for me, and this is home for you, and this is home for us... http://www.onislam.net/english/reading-islam/living-islam/islam-day-to-day/society/455551-tariq-ramadan-eu-muslims-or-muslims-in-europe.html -

Living Islam in Non-Muslim Countries

Tariq Ramadan: How to Empower Yourself

Part of Dr. Tariq Ramadan's talk at the ISNA 2011 Convention, session titled "Loving God, Loving Neighbor, Living in Harmony"

... very often my conclusion is that not only there is a lack of knowledge or there is a lack of education, but there is something which is deep down; which is a crisis.

It’s a religious crisis but if you take it from all these dimensions you would say it’s a psychological crisis. And the psychological crisis is either we are victims or we are not liked, and even in our discourse we are not at the level which is expected, and we keep on repeating this: “We should be better. We should do more”, and at the end if you keep on repeating this- this is coming from basic psychology- if you keep on repeating that you are not able to do something or anything, at the end you will believe that you are not able.

So you end up with a victim mentality, where you are criticizing the others because they are saying things about you. And hence you are creating and nurturing your own passivity and your own helplessness. This is the point that we have to tackle and come back to the starting point when it comes to our young Muslims, but not only the youth, I can see this in leaders. I can see this in the discourse that we have with some scholars who keep on repeating “Look, it’s not working. We are not succeeding. There is a problem”.

Spiritual Empowerment

So let me come to how do we solve this psychological crisis and where does it start. And this is where it’s very important for all of us, and it’s a personal commitment here to come to the understanding of our religion and to ask at the end of the day what are the main objectives of our religion helping us to get this empowerment; individual and collective empowerment, which is needed today, and which was always needed in the Islamic civilization in our history...

How to Be a Muslim in America? (Tariq Ramadan)

Your spirituality, your heart, yourself; don’t forget yourself into the society, and don’t forget the society because you care about your own self. So it’s always a balance. And then give. You are what you give, and you are what you are in the same time. This is the very meaning of being a Muslim: {those who believe and do good deeds.} (Al-Baqarah 2; 25). This is the balance.

It’s not going to easy, you’ll have people if you are here to please them you’ll never be at peace with your own self, because life is not to please the people. Life is about His satisfaction, and you know that when you please God you will be respected by the people. This is the very meaning of being with God.

And then the second thing which is also important is whatever are the critiques and the people rejecting you, at the end you’ll find that within this society many people are starting to listen. Many Americans know something is wrong in the whole discussion. So they are listening to Muslims, they are listening to us, they want to know...

An Article by Dr. Ramadan on Parenthood in Islam

It is important for Muslims to have a discussion about fatherhood while keeping in mind the ever-fragile state of Muslim families.

We need to re-assess the language we use and the ontological assumptions we make when we speak about the role of the father because often, the problem doesn’t just lie with the crisis but the way we deal with it.

Muslims naturally feel inclined to place the mother at the centre of the process of raising children, unwittingly ignoring the father’s role. Islamic tradition does stress the role of the mother. For example, when asked who a Muslim should love most, the Prophet Muhammad said:

“Your mother, your mother, your mother and then your father.” (Al-Bukhari, Muslim)

It is also said that paradise lies at the feet of the mother. As a result, we tend to focus on the father as an individual, not as someone who should and can play a central role within his family.

When we assess issues from an Islamic perspective, we categorize everything according to “rights” and “duties”. We speak of the rights of the man, the rights of the woman, the duties of the man, the duties of the woman. This mentality is dangerous. It reduces issues to black and white, right and wrong absolutes. This approach is more prevalent than we realize. We must take from all the human sciences that can deal with family problems.

Another problem in our approach is the idealism. We speak about an idealized past and idealized families which have nothing to do with reality, whether it be now or the history of our ancestors. Muslims must realize we may be Muslims but we live in Western societies and therefore, face the same problems as other families... http://www.onislam.net/english/reading-islam/living-islam/islam-day-to-day/family/455908-fatherhood-in-islam.html -

An Article by Dr. Ramadan on Spirituality

There is a need to rediscover and reclaim spirituality that permeates Eastern cultures, and that lies at the heart of the Jewish, Christian and Islamic traditions, a consideration that today's social and political uprisings can ill afford to neglect.

For there can be no viable democracy, no pluralism in any society without the well-being of individuals, the citizens and the religious communities.

Western Muslims Beyond Integration

when I am saying Western Muslims or Western Islam, European Islam or European Muslims, I’m not speaking about another Islam which is not the very Islam that we know. I’m talking about something else which has to be understood here. When it comes to our religion as Muslims, there’s only one Islam as to the set of universal principles that we believe in.

It is quite clear, and any ordinary Muslim should know that: one Islam is the creed we call six pillars of faith which are universally agreed by all the Muslims, whatever is your tradition- Sunni, Salafi, Sufi, or Shiite...  We all do not have a problem with this. The pillars of our religion, our faith are the same six pillars, what is called al-‘Aqidah (creed)...

This means that ‘yes, one Islam, but from the very beginning many cultures as well. So when we speak about European Islam, we say European or Canadian Islam, American Islam, Western Islam, we say Western as to the culture and Islamic as to principles; one Islam and many Islamic cultures...

I Have a Question, I Know the Answer, I’m at Peace

by definition human beings are in need, always in need of something. It could be physical and it could be intellectual or spiritual, we need answers to our questions ‘Why’...

Purpose of Life

And this is why Sir Eliot while he was writing his book on the history of religions was saying: “The religious question and quest is part of the intellectual structure of human being.” You have it in yourself. You need to answer this question. There will be no peace if you don’t get an answer.

And not to answer is to answer because if you are avoiding the question like Pascal is saying you are diverting, distracting your mind from your death because the scope is that one day you are going to die. This is the reality and you have to face the why questions. So you can avoid it by having this kind of intellectual distraction, but at the end of the day this question will come back...

The Last Day

It’s a very important question for us today: The very meaning of freedom. So there is this topic where we don’t agree or we agree superficially: To be free is to do whatever you want...

Even contemporary psychologists, the bestseller, Emotional Intelligence, it is saying:  “Master your emotions. If not, you are going to be trapped by emotions.” So this is where you come with discipline and this is something which is important for all of us. All the philosophers and spiritual thinkers are telling us “You will never experience freedom if you don’t get a sense of what discipline is.”...

Toward a Better Future for Western Muslims

Tariq Ramadan on the Future of Islamic Education

And we are in the West surrounded by people who are working on education, coming with new theories, trying their best to come with better theories, and we are sometimes neglecting all this in the name of the fact that we have the right principles! But to have the right principles and not the right methodologies is wrong, because there is no way of understanding the principles if we don’t know how to implement them in a specific context.

So, this is why to be a good Muslim is to have two types of knowledge: The principles and the context, the environment, where and with whom you are living, what you are to achieve here in the name of the principles, and knowing the context within which you are living...

Toward a Better Future for Western Muslims

Tariq Ramadan on the 21st. Century Muslim

what we need is really to think about how we transmit the spiritual message of our religion.

How in our societies we spread this peace and confidence and trust because as the starting point of everything is confidence and confidence is what?

Confidence is not only not to be scared by the people. First, of course for a spiritual mind, for a spiritual message, confidence is to trust Him, al-Tawakkul ala Allah, to know that if you can’t do it, He can do it.

And at the end of the day you have to do whatever you can, then what you can’t He can. This is confidence, this is Tawakul. It’s something which is I can do it but more than that...

Women in Islam

Tariq Ramadan on Islamic Feminism (Watch)

And this is why on my side I’m pushing something I call Islamic feminism understood as:

Go back to the Islamic sources, understand the Islamic principles, and act with these principles against any kind of discrimination done in the name of very narrow minded reading of the sources or the cultural understanding. So I think that all this perception that for example you don’t have to be in the same room with men all this is exaggeration and very superficial understanding of the deep meaning of what it means to be a Muslim woman.

Not only is this happening in Europe or in the United States, it’s also happening in Morocco, Indonesia and Islamic-majority countries with something which is a very assertive presence based on two things: I want to remain a Muslim woman but I want to decide for myself. So this is what we have to push for...

Toward a Better Future for Western Muslims

How Are Muslim Women Perceived in the West?

Toward a Better Future for Western Muslims

Image of Islam in Western Societies (Interview)

Transcript of part of an interview conducted by Dr. Tariq Ramadan with sister Myriam Francois-Cerrah, media representative of the Oxford University Islamic Society, UK, in the weekly TV program “Islam and Life.”

In the interview, sister Myriam, http://www.onislam.net/english/reading-islam/my-journey-to-islam/contemporary-stories/452274-british-actress-inspired-by-prophets-life.html - herself a convert to Islam , reflects on the general negative perception of female Muslims in the West and compares that to the reality on the ground, in answering the central question of the episode:

What is the Image of Muhammad (peace be upon him) in Mainstream Western Society?

Myriam Francois: I think the “ http://www.inspiredbymuhammad.com/ - Inspired by Muhammad ” campaign is to remind people that when Muslims are out there doing good, average Muslims are out there working in homeless charities, helping the elderly or be smiling helping them to cross the road, they are all doing it because that’s the model that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) taught us.

And that’s what the objective is, to model that good behavior in everyday lives but as you said there is obviously a need to a kind of broader campaign. And we said that “Inspired by Muhammad” is just a campaign by one element. We hope that Muslims will take it upon themselves to go out there and reflect that good behavior, and to remember that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) in his life had to deal with far worse persecution than we are going through today, and in fact did not react in anything of semblance to what we see on our television screens...

The Quest for Meaning

Renowned philosopher and scholar Tariq Ramadan asks:

How can different religious traditions move beyond tolerant co-existence to mutual respect and enrichment?

RSA event 15th Sep 2010; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D_2gnZhDWug&feature=relmfu# - 18:00

How different are different religions and traditions of thought?
How can we see past our differences and discover what we have in common?

Philosopher and Islamic scholar Tariq Ramadan visits the RSA to interrogate the religious and secular concepts that frame current debates around faith and reason, emotions and spirituality, tradition and modernity, freedom, equality, universality, and civilization.

Acknowledging the greatest flashpoints, Ramadan attempts to bridge paths to a common ground between differing religious and intellectual traditions.

Tariq Ramadan: Following Muhammad’s Footsteps

Spirituality and Knowledge Are Two Main Keys

Writing was a reform process for me, because for almost 25 years when I was asked about the main principle of Islam, I used to stress that Islam is all about justice, God commands justice. And while I was writing I said, look it is wrong. I found out that justice is a means for a higher objective, and I found that the very essence and objective of Islam is peace.

In Islam there is the word salam, which is also one of the names of God “As-Salam” one of the names of Paradise “Dar As-Salam”, that is something we have to get in our hearts and in our roles, peace in life and peace within the society.

The Prophet, peace be upon him, used to say to people, “Spread peace among you.”  When you greet someone in Arabic you don’t say, have a nice day, you say “peace be with you,” which is the essence of this religion. Peace is not only something that we get, it is an ongoing objective...

While I was writing an introduction about Islam, I found the best introduction to Islam is the Prophet’s life, because he was getting the revelation and he was trying to implement it in his daily life. Even when his own wife, Aishah, was asked about him she said “His character, his way of living, was the Quran.” So, if one wants to understand the Quran, one has to look at his life...

Tariq Ramadan: Speaking Truth and Building Power

United For Change 3rd Annual Conference: "United We Stand: One Nation, One Destiny" (2011)

One of the popular phrases found in activist circles is "speaking truth to power." The importance of doing so is alluded to in the prophetic hadith, "The best Jihad is a word of truth in the face of a tyrannical ruler." However, to really bring an Islamic voice to bear on the issues of the day we are going to have to build power.

In this lecture, Tariq Ramadan, one of this generation's towering intellectuals, addresses these twin issues. Why must we continue to speak truth to power, and what are the means by which we can build our own moral, spiritual and intellectual power?

Finally, what are some of the avenues open to us to join our strength with other communities to help create a moral counterweight to an increasingly amoral politics?

International Muslim charity organizations in today's world

How important is the role of international Muslim charity organizations in today's world?

This is the main question of this TV episode presented by Dr. Tariq Ramadan

Muslims regard charitable giving as an important religious duty in their lives; many religious scholars place giving to charity alongside praying to God. This constitutes one of five Islam's pillars called zakah, an Arabic word for "purification". According to one estimate, citizens of Muslim countries give 10 percent of their income to charitable causes. However the Muslim charitable deeds lack a visible presence in the world.

After the Month of Ramadan: Fasting and Adversity

Ramadan has ended. Around the world, nearly one-and-a-half billion people fasted with discipline and devotion. In so doing, they breathed new life into the experience of the world’s religious and spiritual traditions: mastering hunger, bodily appetites and even their human impulses to release the noblest energy of their being.

Theirs is the aspiration to the divine, to generosity, to the compassion that begins with resistance to self and with giving to neighbours. It has been a month of discipline that teaches us the deepest meaning of dignity and liberty for humankind, among humankind.

Fasting is, first and foremost, an exercise for identifying and managing adversity in all its forms. With faith, in full conscience, fasting calls women and men to an extra degree of self-awareness. Instead of looking outside of ourselves and counting potential enemies, fasting summons us to turn our glance inward, and to take the measure of our greatest challenge: the self, the ego, in our own eyes and as others see us. The aim is to gain mastery over ourselves, to become aware of our illusions, to become the agents of our actions — and not the object of our own pretensions or someone else’s gaze. The philosophy of fasting calls upon us to know ourselves, to master ourselves, and to discipline ourselves the better to free ourselves. To fast is to identify our dependencies, and free ourselves from them. That is adversity number one.

We must master our egoism, and through this mastery, step outside ourselves and educate ourselves in giving. Fasting requires that we rediscover all that is alive around us, and reconcile ourselves with our environment. Fasting with our bodies enables us to see more clearly with our hearts: the Quran reminds us that hearts become blind, not eyes. A blind heart sees nothing but self and its illusions; it cannot contemplate nature, the living creatures around it, and those like it. There can be no faith, and no fast, without solidarity. We must step beyond ourselves, and become a corporal presence, a gift of the heart, and an endowment of being. Human nature sets taking care of self, and consumption above all; the faster’s spiritual aspiration is to become attentive to others and to give without cease. That is adversity number two.

Between the prison of ego and solidarity with others, we must seek—in dialogue with the Divine — a balance. The greatest challenge confronting humankind is that of being and remaining within the harmony of that median way of which the Quran speaks: to confirm ourselves as a spiritual community of the true Middle Path. Our task is to nourish spiritual longings that respect the laws of nature: fasting by day reminds us of each one’s right to break the fast by night. Emancipation from the self cannot be achieved if the individual’s dignity is not respected. It follows that poverty, injustice, oppression and torture, which by their very nature forbid the experience of a free and noble fast, are scandals upon our conscience that we must combat, and can never accept. The search for the Divine obliges us never to compromise basic human rights. That is adversity number three...

Tinkering with Religion in the Garage

Dr. Ramadan gave this talk at the RIS 2010 Annual conference in Canada

Modern societies have become fundamentalist in their secularism and have effectively banned religion from the public square.

Religion has been relegated to the status of a personal hobby, to be practiced behind closed doors. Does public morality suffer as a result?

Is religious morality inherently divisive and disruptive as many believe?

Cambridge Union Debate: Religion Has No Place in the 21st. Century!

Dr. Ramadan participated in a debate last month at Cambridge, UK, titled "This house believes religion has no place in the 21st. century"

Dr. Ramadan's talk starts at minute 42:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHHqrtYJu1c&feature=player_embedded - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AHHqrtYJu1c&feature=player_embedded

(96 minutes)

Last week, I participated in a fascinating debate at Cambridge University, featuring professor Richard Dawkins, an evolutionary biologist and fierce defender of atheism, and Dr Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury. Our subject: the incompatibility of religion with modern society and the challenges of the 21st century.

Professor Dawkins and his camp asserted that religion is more dangerous than beneficial; that it is inherently ’evil’. For him, the thesis of a Creator of the universe is little more than a (bad) idea, a totally non-demonstrable aberration. His approach was aggressive, cutting-edge, quite dogmatic — religion is dangerous; we should thus be critical of its wild claims and hope that it simply vanishes.

For someone who poses as a rational humanist, it was a curious posture: We should “eliminate” our adversary and seek its destruction in the name of “scientific” facts that alone are true and alone deserve respect. Could dogmatism be the child of rationalism as well as of religion?

The Issue of Women

The issue of women has always been a priority in my commitment. I have kept questioning traditional interpretations and inviting Muslims to honest lucidity and critical reflection over the situation of women in Muslim majority societies and in communities settled in the West. The point was not to respond to Western criticisms by adopting a defensive (or altogether apologetic) attitude but to answer the requirement of intellectual probity and consistency. I have repeated this many times: Islam has no problem with women, but Muslims do clearly appear to have serious problems with them, and the reasons and sometimes the (questionable) justifications for this must be sought from within.

First, there is a double phenomenon at the source of all the theological and social constructions that have been established a posteriori. The issue of women is among those most widely affected by literalist readings of the Quran and of Prophetic traditions. Neglecting the fact that the Revelation took place in a given context and that its transmission over a period of twenty-three years determines an orientation as to divine pedagogy, literalist readings freeze the text out of its context, of its internal progression, and of the ends of the global message. They proceed by “reduction” and sometimes manage to justify interpretations that clearly contradict the overall message in its historical evolution or the model of behaviour set by the Prophet of Islam. Beyond unjustified practices (such as physical violence as already mentioned), reformist and literalist interpretations differ in their very conception of women, and of their identity and autonomy. Literalist interpretations integrate the patriarchal context of the time without any critical distance and associate women’s presence and role to their relation to men, while the reformist approach reaches out beyond the historical context to extract fundamental objectives as to women’s identity and their status as autonomous beings. Women should thus become subjects and master their own fates.

The study of the writings and commentaries of early ‘ulama (scholars), from Tabari to Abu Hamid al-Ghazali, clearly shows that they were greatly influenced by their cultural environment. One can often observe that they unwittingly proceed by “projection” on the Texts, their substance and their objectives. A contemporary faqih (Muslim jurist) or commentator must therefore perform a twofold dialectical analysis: the scriptural sources must first be read in light of their context, and then later commentaries must be read in light of the sociocultural contexts of the scholars who produced them. This process of deconstruction is difficult, but it makes it possible to critique the historical and cultural coating that has been projected onto primary sources. Thus, discourse about women has been widely influenced by patriarchal cultures, so that some cultural practices that were not “Islamic” have come to be justified. Female excision, forced marriages, honour crimes, for instance, are not Islamic even though certain scholars may have attempted to provide religious justification for them. This critical work is a long way from being completed, and awareness must be raised among Muslims and their fellow citizens about those confusions that lead to the original message being betrayed. This is why I cooperated with the Muslim organisation SPIOR from Rotterdam in launching a European campaign against forced marriages in May 2008: the point is to speak out and state forcefully that such practices (like excision, honour crimes, and others) are against Islam.

Moreover, the psychological dimension in the debate over women should not be downplayed. The relationship to the West is a complex one: before, during, then after colonisation, the issue of women has been central to power relations and political as well as theological and cultural debates. This has fostered a kind of reflex reaction in the contemporary Muslim psyche: the less Western the discourse about women, the more it is perceived as Islamic, and conversely, the more Islamic it is, the more it should be restrictive and oppose Western permissiveness whose objective is supposed to be to undermine religion and morals. Such an attitude has often prevented Muslim scholars and intellectuals from undertaking an autonomous, rigorous critique from within, stemming from a concern for reconciling Muslims with their own message and its ends. The point is not to be naive about relations of domination but indeed to get rid of the fear and alienation that keep thought static in order to stand apart from the others and refuse their control. Refusing “Western” domination by betraying one’s own religious message is an even more dangerous form of alienation since, in the process of resisting, one’s critical capacity, concern for consistency, and creative energy are lost. One ends up being defined only through the others,through their negative mirror: here, psychology wins out over liberation.

It is therefore important to carry out in-depth critical work and encourage women to become involved and acquire the religious learning necessary to develop new feminine readings. Women must be present in the religious community’s decision circles, in organisations, in mosque managing bodies, and other places. Things should be shaken up so that women can recover their proper place, but women themselves must also get organised: they will achieve nothing if they retain a victim mind-set. It is obvious today that wherever women have had access to schooling, have received Islamic education, or have become involved at the community or social level, they perform better than men: they achieve better results, they are more committed, more rigorous, and more earnest. Facts and figures speak for themselves. This process must go on and offer women full access to civil society and to employment with demands that should be taken for granted: similar training, similar qualification mean getting the same salary, and job discrimination (because a woman is too young and will probably have a child,or because she is too old and does not fit with the youthful “image”) must be rejected and fought against. Whether or not one calls it feminist (I do not mind), this commitment for women’s legitimate rights can and must take place from within.

Ramadan Month of Fasting, Month of Meaning

Most of the classical religious teachings regarding the month of Ramadan insist on the rules being respected as well as the deep spiritual dimension of this month of fasting, privations, worship and meditation. While thinking about it more closely, one realises that this month marries apparently contradictory requirements which, nevertheless, together constitute the universe of faith.

To ponder over these different dimensions is the responsibility of each conscience, each woman, each man and each community of faith, wherever they are. We can never emphasise enough the importance of this “return to oneself” required during this period of fast.

Ramadan is a month of abrupt changes; this is true here more than anywhere else. At the heart of our consumer society, where we are used to easy access to goods and possessions and where we are driven by the marked individualism of our daily lives, this month requires from everyone that we come back to the centre and the meaning of our life... http://www.tariqramadan.com/spip.php?article12917 -

We

We must learn to say 'we' again. Just as I can say 'I' and still belong to myself, we must be able to say 'we' whilst acknowledging our common sense of belonging. Some would like us to sit down at a table and discuss the best way of saying 'we' and of respecting 'one another'. And yet it is quite possible that the method itself is what is preventing us from getting the results we want.

Theories and debates about 'the sense of belonging' actually make it impossible for us to feel that we belong. We are talking about a feeling: we come to feel that we belong because we live that feeling, because we experience it. The common law protects us, but it is common causes that allow us to respect and love one another (by acting together 'for' some cause and not just 'against' a threat). A common commitment to respect for human dignity and saving the planet, or to the struggle against poverty, discrimination, every type of racism, and to promote the arts, the sciences, sports and culture, responsibility and creativity: these are the best ways of developing a real conviviality that is both lived and effective.

We become subjects who can say 'I' when we have discovered the meaning of our personal projects: we become 'we', a community or a society when we can decide upon a common collective project. In most circumstances, it is not dialogue between human subjects that changes the way they see others; it is the awareness that they are on the same path, the same road and have the same aspirations. When our consciousness acknowledges that we are travelling the same road, it has already half-opened the door to the heart: we always have a little love for those who share our hopes. 'We' exist by the sides of roads that lead to the same goals.

Dr Tariq Ramadan gives this talk about the First Revelation of the Quran ( http://quran.com/96 - Chapter 96 ).

Qari Muhammad Jebril (of Egypt) beautifully recites the first five verses of this chapter at the London Central mosque.
