Mahatma Gandhi:
My faith is that the progress of
Islam does not depend on the
use of sword by its believers,
but the result of the supreme
sacrifice of HUSAYN,
the great saint.
Dr. Rajendra Prasad:
The sacrifice of Imam
HUSAYN is not limited to one
country, or nation, but it is the
hereditary state of the
brotherhood of all mankind.
No one will feel secured
on the Resurrection Day
except those who feared
God in this world .

People are slaves to the world ,
and as long as they live

they are loyal to religious

religious people are scarce .

Quran takes the responsibility of man
prosperity alone. I hope it will not be too

Gandhi (1869-1948):
By learning Quran, every body will
achieve revelation secrets and religion
knowledge. In Quran we don’t see
anything which allows using obligation to

obligation in religion.”

If you don't believe in
any religion and don't

Day , at least be free in

Those who worship God for the hope
of gaining , they're not real
worshippers , they're merchants .
Those who worship God out of fear (
of punishment ) , they're slaves . And
those who worship God to be grateful
towards their creator , they are
the free people , and their worship is
a real one .

In order to keep alive justice

submitting to the wrongful, especially when the
