What is Islam?

Islam is a beautiful system (like all other faiths) devised to restore sanity and common sense in a society through simple basics like being truthful, trustworthy, imbibing a sense security in fellow beings, stand up for justice, practice non-judgementalism, believe in dialogue to resolve the conflicts,  jettison arrogance and adopt humility and kindness as their life style.

These are the principles of building cohesive societies where no human has to live in apprehension or fear of the other,  indeed that is the foundation of Islam and a few Muslim have forgotten it. We have to restore it now for building a cohesive world, where no one has to live in apprehension or fear of the other.  You live your life, and let other live theirs. 

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) laid that foundation, and those seven principles made him an Amin, an individual who lives his life per those principles.  Unfortunately, a few have made Islam to be a political system, which it is not. Indeed, sadly all religions have become political systems of you or me, rather than spiritual system of we are in this together.

Preparing a talk on the subject.
