#1. Muhammad preached his farewell sermon to the Muslim community. He reminded them to deal justly with one another, to treat women kindly, and to abandon the blood feuds and vendettas inspired by the spirit of jahiliyyah. Muslim must never fight against Muslim. - Author: Karen Armstrong

Muslim Community quotes by Barack Obama
#3. I'm a Muslim, we come from a Muslim community and we are very critical of western or American foreign policy. So if I've got the right and if other Muslims have got the right to criticize ... likewise everyone else has also got the right to criticize everything else. - Author: Maajid Nawaz

Any enemy of America is our enemy. We will work to find, stop, arrest, turn in, and condemn anyone in our community who aspires to radicalize our religion and harm our country'? - Author: Brigitte Gabriel
Muslim Community quotes by Brigitte Gabriel
#7. It's been our experience that any time a Muslim community anywhere seeks to expand or establish a mosque or some other kind of institution, there will be some type of opposition, when you scratch the surface, often there is a tremendous level of bigotry and stereotyping in the opposition. - Author: Ibrahim Hooper
Muslim Community quotes by Ibrahim Hooper

Muslim Community quotes by Sam Harris

Muslim Community quotes by Ridley Scott
#10. I was the person, I think, who first said the evening of September 11 that we shouldn't hold this against the Arab community, the Muslim community. We should focus on the individuals and that groups that were involved and not participate in group blame. - Author: Rudy Giuliani
Muslim Community quotes by Rudy Giuliani
#11. The Muslim community should not be treated as a problematic community, but treated as a community that is willing to play its role in the mainstream. - Author: Iqbal Sacranie
Muslim Community quotes by Iqbal Sacranie
#12. Srebrenica was officially 'protected' not just by UN mandate but by a 400-strong peacekeeping contingent of armed Dutch soldiers. But when Mladic's men arrived the Dutch battalion laid down its arms and offered no resistance whatsoever as Serbian troops combed the Muslim community, systematically separating men and boys from the rest. The next day, after Mladic had given his 'word of honor as an officer' that the men would not be harmed, his soldiers marched the Muslim males, including boys as young as thirteen, out into the fields around Srebrenica. In the course of the next four days nearly all of them - 7,400 - were killed. The Dutch soldiers returned safely home to Holland. - Author: Tony Judt
Muslim Community quotes by Tony Judt
#13. We who don't want radical Islam to spread must compete with the agents of radical Islam. I want to see what would happen if Christians, feminists and Enlightenment thinkers were to start proselytizing in the Muslim community. - Author: Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Muslim Community quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
#14. If the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris had nothing to do with Islam as President Francois Hollande suggested, why did he invite Muslim community leaders to meet him the day after the tragedy? - Author: Amir Taheri
Muslim Community quotes by Amir Taheri
#15. Unlike the United Kingdom or the Commonwealth, the umma, or Muslim community, has no symbolic leader, let alone a formal one. - Author: Ayaan Hirsi Ali
Muslim Community quotes by Ayaan Hirsi Ali
#16. If we are true small 'l' liberals, it's our job to seek out feminist Muslims, ex-Muslims, liberal Muslims, dissenting voices within Muslim communities, gay Muslims - we should promote those voices and in doing so, we demonstrate Islam is not a monolith, Muslims are not homogenous, and that Muslims are truly internally diverse. - Author: Maajid Nawaz
Muslim Community quotes by Maajid Nawaz
#17. I think people, especially in the Muslim community, are rightly cautious any time you hear, 'Oh, there's going to be a Muslim character.' - Author: G. Willow Wilson
Muslim Community quotes by G. Willow Wilson
#18. The terrorists who committed the 2003 Istanbul attacks were locals, that is, Turks. And when filmmaker Theo van Gogh was murdered in the Netherlands last year, the murderer and his supporters were also part of the Muslim community. - Author: Otto Schily
Muslim Community quotes by Otto Schily
#19. I think there has been a lack of full cooperation from too many people in the Muslim community. - Author: Peter T. King
Muslim Community quotes by Peter T. King
#20. Muslim organisations tend to have a low level of organisation. The communities in Europe are quite diverse. - Author: Gijs De Vries
Muslim Community quotes by Gijs De Vries
#21. We only have one penal code in the United States, and it applies in every single state, every city, no matter who is there. This is part of the fear mongering, that has gripped the United States, the notion that we need to pass a law forbidding the institution of a foreign Law in the United States when it is forbidden by the constitutions is yet another example of targeting Muslim communities because they are seen as different, or exceptional in other ways. - Author: Mark Durie
Muslim Community quotes by Mark Durie
#22. Being a Muslim in America, I've noticed that there's a ton of crossover between the Muslim community and geekdom. - Author: G. Willow Wilson
Muslim Community quotes by G. Willow Wilson
#23. [L]iberals insist that children should be given the right to remain part of their particular community, but on condition that they are given a choice. But for, say, Amish children to really have a free choice of which way of life to choose, either their parents' life or that of the "English," they would have to be properly informed on all the options, educated in them, and the only way to do what would be to extract them from their embeddedness in the Amish community, in other words, to effectively render them "English." This also clearly demonstrates the limitations of the standard liberal attitude towards Muslim women wearing a veil: it is deemed acceptable if it is their free choice and not an option imposed on them by their husbands or family. However, the moment a woman wears a veil as the result of her free individual choice, the meaning of her act changes completely: it is no longer a sign of her direct substantial belongingness to the Muslim community, but an expression of her idiosyncratic individuality, of her spiritual quest and her protest against the vulgarity of the commodification of sexuality, or else a political gesture of protest against the West. A choice is always a meta-choice, a choice of the modality of choice itself: it is one thing to wear a veil because of one's immediate immersion in a tradition; it is quite another to refuse to wear a veil; and yet another to wear one not out of a sense of belonging, but as an ethico-political choice. This is why, - Author: Slavoj Zizek
Muslim Community quotes by Slavoj Zizek
#24. There have been reports of many child marriages taking place in the Malabar region in Kerala, especially among the Muslim community. However, under Muslim Personal Law, a girl can be married once she attains puberty, and hence we cannot say that such marriages are not valid. - Author: Girija Vyas
Muslim Community quotes by Girija Vyas
#25. Generosity is luck going in the opposite direction, away from you. If you're generous to someone, if you do something to help him out, you are in effect making him lucky. This is important. It's like inviting yourself into a community of good fortune. - Author: Twyla Tharp
Muslim Community quotes by Twyla Tharp
#26. The tech community is a closely knit group, which is why it's so powerful. All of these companies have an affinity for each other, even if they compete with each other. - Author: Ron Conway
Muslim Community quotes by Ron Conway
#27. I think making the songs is to put strength in the community in some way. - Author: Craig Finn
Muslim Community quotes by Craig Finn
#28. According to the oral tradition of Witches, we were once the priests and priestesses of a peasant Pagan religion. Members of this secret sect met at night beneath the full moon, for these were the "misfits" and "outcasts" who did not fit into mainstream society. Little has changed over the centuries and the Witchcraft community still embraces individuals frequently rejected in mainstream society. These include gays, lesbians, transgendered individuals, and other people with the courage to live their lives authentically in accord with who they are inside their hearts, minds, and spirits. - Author: Raven Grimassi
Muslim Community quotes by Raven Grimassi
#29. The problem is Jewish-American fiction that always ends with assimilation back into the community. - Author: Joshua Cohen
Muslim Community quotes by Joshua Cohen
#30. The fundamental character of our faith means an extensive diversity is required not only within local community, but between communities. - Author: Stanley Hauerwas
Muslim Community quotes by Stanley Hauerwas
#31. Here is an oral tradition, legends passed from mouth to mouth, a communal myth created invariably at the base of the mango tree in the evening's profound darkness, in which only the trembling voices of old men resound, because the women and children are silent, raptly listening. That is why the evening hour is so important: it is the time when the community contemplates what it is and whence it came. - Author: Ryszard Kapuscinski
Muslim Community quotes by Ryszard Kapuscinski
#32. I've taken every writing class I've had available. I took classes in high school, and I took English and writing classes in community college, but I dropped out of college. I also attended a local writing workshop two years ago. - Author: Amanda Hocking
Muslim Community quotes by Amanda Hocking
#33. It's the warmest, loveliest community I've ever set foot in. For me, it's the perfect place to live. It's the best part of America. - Author: Nicole Kidman
Muslim Community quotes by Nicole Kidman
#34. I wanted to win to feed the hungry people of my community. I didn't want to win to buy a diamond.. I didn't have no diamonds then. I didn't want to win to buy a car, I didn't want to win to bring a couple of chicks downtown to a hotel. I wanted to win to feed the poor people of the community. - Author: Mr. T
Muslim Community quotes by Mr. T
#35. One day a Muslim friend and I were out for the day together. I had forgotten that the Fast of Ramadan had just begun and suggested that we step into a restaurant for a cup of coffee. "I will spend years in jail for that cup of coffee," he said, so of course I apologized for the suggestion. Then in low tones he admitted that his fast was restricted to public view and that he did not practice it in private. "I cannot work ten hours a day without eating," he said. There was an awkward silence, and he muttered these words: "I don't think God is the enforcer of these rules." As anyone knows who has asked any Muslim, they will admit with a smile upon their faces that during the month of the Fast of Ramadan more food is sold than during any other month of the year. But its consumption takes place from dusk to dawn rather than from dawn to dusk. Legalism always breeds compliance over purpose. In - Author: Ravi Zacharias
Muslim Community quotes by Ravi Zacharias
#36. I hope my organization will not be around in 10 years, because at a national, state, and community level, we will have evolved into a society that cares about children and the need for play. - Author: Darell Hammond
Muslim Community quotes by Darell Hammond
#37. We look at the world through our own eyes, naturally. But by looking from the inside out, we see an inside-out world. This book takes the perspective of the world outside us - a world in which humans are not the measure of all things, a human race among other races ... In our estrangement from nature we have severed our sense of the community of life and lost touch with the experience of other animals ... understanding the human animal becomes easier in context, seeing our human thread woven into the living web among the strands of so many others. - Author: Carl Safina
Muslim Community quotes by Carl Safina
#38. If colleges are going to justify themselves, they are going to have to thrive at those things that require physical proximity. That includes moral and spiritual development. Very few of us cultivate our souls as hermits. We do it through small groups and relationships and in social contexts. - Author: David Brooks
Muslim Community quotes by David Brooks
#39. If we are lucky enough, as I am, to be from time to time in quite close contact with young people, they can sometimes make it easier to hang on to this notion when they function, as every person does vis-a-vis every other person they come up against, as a mirror.
Always we are being reflected in the eyes of others. Are we silly or sensible, stupid or clever, bad or good, unattractive or sexy...? We never stop being at least slightly aware of, if not actively searching for, answers to such questions, and are either deflated or elated, in extreme cases ruined or saved, by what we get. So if when you are old a beloved child happens to look at you as if he or she thinks (even if mistakenly!) that you are wise and kind: what a blessing! It's not that such a fleeting glimpse of yourself can convert you into wiseness and kindness in any enduring way; more like a good session of reflexology which, although it can cure nothing, does make you feel like a better person while it's going on and for an hour or two afterwards, and even that is well worth having.
The more frequent such shots of self-esteem are, the more valuable they become, so there is a risk - remote, but possible - of their becoming addictive. An old person who doesn't enjoy having young people in her life must be a curmudgeon, but it is extremely important that she should remember that risk and watch her step. Or he, his. - Author: Diana Athill
Muslim Community quotes by Diana Athill
#40. The strength of collective decision making and political responsibility is not only a question of recognizing other people's ability. It is also recognizing one's own limitations. - Author: Aruna Roy
Muslim Community quotes by Aruna Roy
#41. When we excuse homophobia as a matter of opinion instead of treating it as a destructive social illness, we invite fear to explode into violence ... If we are ever to scrape the black rot of prejudice from the heart of our nation, we must stop excusing those who give it expression and even excuse. The next time someone dares to say, "Just because I don't approve of homosexuality doesn't make me a bigot," we must all answer back, "Yes, it does. Not only does it make you a bigot, it makes you a criminal, a danger to me, my family, my community, my city, and my country. - Author: Harvey Fierstein
Muslim Community quotes by Harvey Fierstein
#42. One of the big mistakes they made in Europe is that the circumstances in which you most frequently read or hear the word "race" or "racism" in Europe applies to Muslims. Which is not a race. It is a religion. You can convert to this. You cannot convert your race. I could become a Muslim. I could not become a Chinese person or a black person. So they constantly use that in Europe. - Author: Fran Lebowitz
Muslim Community quotes by Fran Lebowitz
#43. Failure in training identifies weaknesses so as to prevent them in the field, because as the common saying goes in the tactical community, "We don't rise to the level of our expectations, we fall to the level of our training." We live by that code. - Author: Gary J. Byrne
Muslim Community quotes by Gary J. Byrne
#44. I am a Muslim and ... my religion makes me be against all forms of racism. It keeps me from judging any man by the color of his skin. It teaches me to judge him by his deeds . - Author: Malcolm X
Muslim Community quotes by Malcolm X
#45. Whether someone wants to learn the words to a new Lady Gaga song they heard on the radio or to verify the lyrics to 'Blinded by the Light', the LyricWiki community delivers. - Author: Gil Penchina
Muslim Community quotes by Gil Penchina
#46. In the symbiotic community of the forest, not only trees but also shrubs and grasses - and possibly all plant species - exchange information this way. However, when we step into farm fields, the vegetation becomes very quiet. Thanks to selective breeding, our cultivated plants have, for the most part, lost their ability to communicate above or below ground - you could say they are deaf and dumb - and therefore they are easy prey for insect pests.12 That is one reason why modern agriculture uses so many pesticides. Perhaps farmers can learn from the forests and breed a little more wildness back into their grain and potatoes so that they'll be more talkative in the future. Communication - Author: Peter Wohlleben
Muslim Community quotes by Peter Wohlleben
#47. I think, while it is true that the Hillary Clinton and I voted differently on the war in Iraq, what is important is that we learn the lesson of the war in Iraq. And that lesson is intrinsic to my foreign policy if elected president, is the United States cannot do it alone. We cannot be the policeman of the world. We are now spending more I believe than the next eight countries on defense. We have got to work in strong coalition with the major powers of the world and with those Muslim countries that are prepared to stand up and take on terrorism. - Author: Bernie Sanders
Muslim Community quotes by Bernie Sanders
#48. I think one of the most important investments an organization like TNC [The Nature Conservancy] can make is in helping build local capacity - supporting the growth of a global network of small community-based entities. Help people who live within critical ecosystems help themselves and their neighbors to design a better future relationship between themselves and their natural resources. - Author: Edward Norton
Muslim Community quotes by Edward Norton
#49. The victims of right-wing violence are typically immigrants, Muslims, and people of color, while the targets of environmental and animal rights activism are among "the most powerful corporations on the planet" - hence the state's relative indifference to the one and obsession with the other.

The broader pattern helps to explain one partial exception to the left/right gap in official scrutiny - namely, the domestic aspects of the "War on Terror." Al Qaeda is clearly a reactionary organization. Like much of the American far right, it is theocratic, anti-Semitic, and patriarchal. Like Timothy McVeigh, the 9/11 hijackers attacked symbols of institutional power, killing a great many innocent people to further their cause. But while the state's bias favors the right over the left, the Islamists were the wrong kind of right-wing fanatic. These right-wing terrorists were foreigners, they were Muslim, and above all they were not white. And so, in retrospect and by comparison, the state's response to the Oklahoma City bombing seems relatively restrained - short-lived, focused, selectively targeting unlawful behavior for prosecution. The government's reaction to the September 11th attacks has been something else entirely - an open-ended war fought at home and abroad, using all variety of legal, illegal, and extra-legal military, police, and intelligence tactics, arbitrarily jailing large numbers of people and spying on entire communities of immigrants, Muslims, and Middle - Author: Kristian Williams
Muslim Community quotes by Kristian Williams
#50. Urban planner and historian Lewis Mumford, though no Marxist, could see how the vast gulf between the promise of technological progress and its capitalist application was a glaring contradiction at the heart of the system: "Those machines whose output was so great that all men might be clothed; those new methods of agriculture and new agricultural implements which promised crops so big that all men might be fed - the very instruments that were to give the whole community the basis of a good life, turned out, for the vast majority of people who possessed neither capital nor land, to be nothing short of instruments of torture. - Author: Paul D'Amato
Muslim Community quotes by Paul D'Amato
#51. Every mujahadeen who comes in from outside the country finds an environment where Arabic is spoken. So in that sense, it's a tremendous come-on for the young in Islam. But I think much more important is, it just validates so much of what the Muslim world is predisposed to believe. - Author: Michael Scheuer
Muslim Community quotes by Michael Scheuer
#52. Franklin's inquisitive mind craved stimulation, consistently gravitating toward whatever community of intellects asked the most intriguing questions; his expansive temperament sought souls that resonated with his own generosity and sense of virtue. In five years in England he had found more of both than in a lifetime in America. "Of all the enviable things England has," he told Polly Stevenson, "I envy most its people. Why should that petty island, which compared to America is but like a stepping stone in a brook, scarce enough of it above water to keep one's shoes dry; why, I say, should that little island enjoy in almost every neighbourhood more sensible, virtuous and elegant minds than we can collect in ranging 100 leagues of our vast forests?" He left such people reluctantly and, he trusted, temporarily. - Author: H.W. Brands
Muslim Community quotes by H.W. Brands
#53. In the United States, cheap fossil fuel has eroded communities. We're the first people with no real practical need for each other. Everything comes from a great distance through anonymous and invisible transactions. We've taken that to be a virtue, but it's as much a curse. Americans are not very satisfied with their lives, and the loss of community is part of that. - Author: Bill McKibben
Muslim Community quotes by Bill McKibben
#54. You should understand that private faith does not force public decisions. That's how you work at compromise. I haven't given up what I believe, but I live in community - in a city, state, nation, and world - with people who don't believe what I believe. That doesn't make them defective or inferior. - Author: Jeremiah Wright
Muslim Community quotes by Jeremiah Wright
#55. What systems have you and your worship community built that are keeping you from fully entering into relationship with Jesus? - Author: Anonymous
Muslim Community quotes by Anonymous
#56. We need to understand that we as citizens and as a government in any community throughout this country have no more important obligation than to educate those who are going to replace us. - Author: Colin Powell
Muslim Community quotes by Colin Powell
#57. By the way, what's a Butterwald Duck?" I ask. "I saw supplies and a sign mentioning it in one of the other rooms at the library."

"Oh, those are for next month." She takes off her glasses and sets them on the bedside table. "For the protest we're holding to allow the ducks penned in at Butterwald Park free rein."

"Protest?" I ask.

She nods. "The Austenites are very active in the community."

I set my guitar down, leaning it against the wall. "You're terrorists?"

Sarah rolls her pretty eyes. "Don't be silly. We're . . . an organization committed to bringing awareness to social issues, through what may be seen as semi-controversial methods at times."

"Exactly." I nod. "Terrorists."

Sarah pinches my arm.

"Ow . . . violent terrorists," I tease. - Author: Emma Chase
Muslim Community quotes by Emma Chase
#58. Minimum standards to promote workers' wages, health and safety, to safeguard the community against pollution and degradation, and to ensure basic life goods for all as a basic contract for civil society was between 1945 and the mid-1970s, in fact, a rapidly evolving framework which inhibited the causes and effects of a corporate market system committed to an opposed goal. - Author: John McMurtry
Muslim Community quotes by John McMurtry
#59. The question may well be raised, however, whether we could have a community or a society based on this hypothesis of multiple realities. Might not such a society be a completely individualistic anarchy? That is not my opinion. Suppose my grudging tolerance of your separate world view became a full acceptance of you and your right to have such a view. Suppose that instead of shutting out the realities of others as absurd or dangerous or heretical or stupid, I was willing to explore and learn about those realities? Suppose you were willing to do the same. What would be the social result? I think that our society would be based not on a blind commitment to a cause or creed or view of reality, but on a common commitment to each other as rightfully separate persons, with separate realities. The natural human tendency to care for another would no longer be "I care for you because you are the same as I," but, instead, "I prize and treasure you because you are different from me. - Author: Carl R. Rogers
Muslim Community quotes by Carl R. Rogers
#60. A man ought to work. That's what he's here for. That's how he contributes to the welfare of the community. - Author: W. Somerset Maugham
Muslim Community quotes by W. Somerset Maugham
#61. We seem to forget that everything that is good for the environment is a job. Solar panels don't put themselves up. Wind turbines don't manufacture themselves. Houses don't retrofit themselves and put in their own new boilers and furnaces and better-fitting windows and doors. Advanced biofuel crops don't plant themselves. Community gardens don't tend themselves. Farmers' markets don't run themselves. Every single thing that is good for the environment is actually a job, a contract, or an entrepreneurial opportunity. - Author: Van Jones
Muslim Community quotes by Van Jones
#62. Koinonia is often translated by the word "fellowship," but that is too thin a word for many of us (especially those with memories of bad potluck dinners in the fellowship hall). Koinonia is a rich word that refers to shared life lived in intimate community. It is sharing one another's joys and burdens. It is walking together in the details of daily life. Apart from a deep experience of koinonia, our corporate worship gathering too easily devolves into a kind of individual spectator experience that we all happen to have in the same time and place week after week. - Author: Barry D. Jones
Muslim Community quotes by Barry D. Jones
#63. You don't have to live in community long to realize that lives which are blessed and instructive are still flawed. The grace of the gospel isn't only that the Word was made flesh in Jesus, but also that the eternal Word is made present in weak and wonderful people. - Author: Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove
Muslim Community quotes by Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove
