7. "_ (Omar ibn el Khattab) lorsque j'ai entendu le Prophète, que la grâce de Dieu lui soit assurée, nous dire: "Aujourd'hui j'ai parachevé mon bienfait à votre égard", certe oui, j'ai pleuré. Ce même jour d'Arafat, le Prophète m'a demandé la raison de mes pleurs, j'ai répondu: " Ce qui me fait pleurer, c'est que, jusqu'à présent, nous étions dans un accroissement constant dans notre religion, mais si, à présent, elle est achevée, il faut dire qu'il n' y a pas de choses qui atteignent leur plénitude sans que, par la suite, elles ne s'amoindrissent!" Et le Prophète m'ayant écouté a répondu après un long moment: "Certes, Omar, tu as dis vrai!"

8. "Selon Ibn Khaldoun, il ne faut jamais oublier l'importance du climat. Le visage soucieux et l'allure renfrognée du Fassi, s"expliqueraient par le climat rugueux qu'ils endurent avec cet hiver givré de glace et de ce vent mordant qui souffle du nord. Je me demande pourtant si le climat a une telle importance pour déterminer la place de le séduction dans une culture donnée. A fès, il y a un mot pour désigner celui _ ou celle _ qui sourit sans raison. On dit qu'il "Farnass". C'est ce qu'on dit de quelqu'un qui a la lèvre supérieure qui fuit quelque peu et découvre les dents de devant. Petite, je m'entendais dire sans cesse: " Seul l'âne farnass". Serrer les lèvres 'avait donc rien à voir avec le froid! Cette attitude traduisait plutôt un certain un certain recroquevillement de l'être, une certaine absence de générosité au niveau du sentiment. A Fès, même un sourire doit être calculé, doit avoir un prix, une signification bien précise dans un réseau de comportements déterminés...."

10. "Why take the time to convince me? If I disagree you could simply kill me, take Fadwa, and do whatever you like." Ibn Malik raised an eyebrow. "True. But I prefer reason and agreement. Allies are much more useful than bodies."

11. "Ibn Mas'ud said, "When 'Umar died nine-tenth of all knowledge vanished with him." The people were shocked and said, "How can this be when among us now are still many of the great companions?" Ibn Mas'ud replied,"I am not speaking of the knowledge of fiqh and the science of judgements, I'm speaking about the knowledge of Allah." This struggle of isolation, hunger, sleeplessness, weeping, fear and endless service to men was for this end. The journey is only for knowledge of Allah and the whole of it lies in detachment from everything that passes away. First from what is displeasing to Allah, then from one's self-illusion and desires, and then from all men and all otherness until there is only isolation and extreme nearness to Allah."

12. "It is a meaningful thing for a scientist of the stature of Ibn Sina, certainly one of the best scientific minds in the whole history of mankind, to often resort to prayer to seek God's help in solving his philosophical and scientific problems. And it is also perfectly understandable why the purification of the soul is considered an integral part of the methodology of knowledge."

14. "Nobody ever wanted to go to war, but if a war came your way, it might as well be the right war, about the most important things in the world, and you might as well, if you were going to fight it, be called "Rushdie," and stand where your father had placed you, in the tradition of the grand Aristotelian, Averroës, Abul Walid Muhammad ibn Ahmad ibn Rushd."
Author: Salman Rushdie
15. "There's one other thing I'd like to remind you of, my dear. There've been many times when you've sworn to me that after all that life has dealt you, it was no longer possible for you to believe in anything. I replied that both life and my studies had led me to the same conclusion. I asked you, 'What is a person permitted, once he's realized that truth is unattainable and consequently doesn't exist for him?' Do you remember your answer?""I do, ibn Sabbah. I said something like this: 'If a person realized that everything people call happiness, love and joy was just a miscalculation based on a false premise, he'd feel a horrible emptiness inside. The only thing that could rouse him from his paralysis would be to gamble with his own face and the face of others. The person capable of that would be permitted anything."

16. "Satu kekuatan kursus tamadun Islam di IPT Barat - jika kita ketepikan sikap prejudis dan perkiraan strategiknya - ialah kesungguhan ilmiahnya.... Setiap pelajar diwajibkan membaca keseluruhan terjemahan al-Qur'an, berpuluh-puluh hadits pilihan daripada pelbagai kitab-kitab hadits, terjemahan sirah Ibn Ishaq, serta terjemahan karya-karya agung Islam yang lain. Setiap pelajar diwajibkan membaca hampir 50 mukasurat setiap hari dan diwajibkan menulis kertas kerja serta ujian yang meletihkan. Kita juga diberikan peta dunia lama yang kosong di mana pelajar diwajibkan menanda nama bandar, sungai, laut, teluk, gunung, dan daerah, negara yang kini sudah tiada lagi atau sudah berubah nama!!! Ini perlu kerana apabila pelajar membaca karya-karya terdahulu, mereka boleh memastikan tempat dan kawasan yang dimaksudkan itu dengan tepat dan lebih bermakna."

17. "Saya tetap menghormati beliau (Fazlur Rahman) sebagai salah seorang ilmuwan ulong zaman ini, khasnya dari tradisi falsafah ala Ibn Sina. Saya juga menyanjunginya sebagai seorang yang baik dan berdedikasi dalam perjuangannya walaupun saya tidak bersependapat dengannya. Sikap ini saya dapat secara praktis dari memerhatikan Prof Syed Muhammad Naquib al-Attas sejak 1988 hingga sekarang."

18. "Di antara pertikaian antarmazhab yang mengakibatkan pergolakan dan kekacauan adalah pertikaian antara mazhab Ahlus Sunnah dan Rafidhah pada tahun 655H. Pertikaian ini dimenangkan Ahli Sunnah sehingga bertambahlah kebencian kaum Rafidhah terhadap kalangan Ahlus Sunnah. Wazir Ibn al-‘Alqami yang menganut mazhab Rafidhah menekan kaum Muslim Ahlus Sunnah dan meminta Hulagu Khan, pemimpin Tartar menyerang wilayah Islam. Permintaan ini dipenuhi Hulagu Khan yang berhasil menduduki Baghdad, menjatuhkan khalifah dan menghapus sistem kekhalifahan dan membantai penduduk tanpa pandang bulu sehingga kota itu banjir darah."
