Quotes: Islam

I have always held the religion of Muhammad in high estimation because of its wonderful vitality. It is the only religion which appears to me to possess that assimilating capacity to the changing phase of existence which can make itself appeal to every age. I have studied him - the wonderful man and in my opinion for from being an anti-Christ, he must be called the Saviour of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it the much needed peace and happiness.

George Bernard Shaw, The Genuine Islam, Vol. I, No 8
America needs to understand Islam, because this is the one religion that erases from it's society the race problem...I have never before seen sincere and true brotherhood practiced by all colours together, irrespective of their colour.

Malik El-Shabbazz (Malcolm X), letter from Hajj
I have very carefully studied Islam and the life of its Prophet (PBUH). I have done so both as a student of history and as a critic. And I have come to conclusion that Muhammad (PBUH) was indeed a great man and a deliverer and benefactor of mankind which was till then writhing under the most agonising pain.

George Bernard Shaw
