salaam – true Islam


"There was a time I used to reject those who were not of my faith. Now my heart has grown capable of taking on many forms: a pasture for gazelles, a convent for Christians, a temple for idols, a Kaaba* for the pilgrim, a table for the Torah, a book of the Koran. My religion is love - whichever the route love's caravan shall take, that path shall be the path of my faith."

*The most sacred Muslim shrine, to be found in Mecca Muhyiddin Ibn 'Arabi (1165-1240)
