Tariq Ramadan quotes (showing 1-30 of 75)

“Saying that Islam is in heart, is similar to giving back the exam's paper completely white and saying : knowledge is in brain.”
Tariq Ramadan
“Intellect is a part of a good faith. Intellect is the light, the heart is the direction.”
Tariq Ramadan
“Humility is my table, respect is my garment, empathy is my food and curiosity is my drink. As for love, it has a thousand names and is by my side at every window.”
Tariq Ramadan, The Quest for Meaning: Developing a Philosophy of Pluralism
“Behind every great man is not a woman, she is beside him, she is with him, not behind him”
Tariq Ramadan
“If there is a smoke, there is a fire, the saying goes, That is quite true, but one should find what the fire is, and who lit it.”
Tariq Ramadan, What I Believe
“The more you look into and understand yourself, the less judgmental you become towards others.”
Tariq Ramadan
“I have learned that one should say "Peace!" to those who shout their hatred for one's being and presence or at one's passage.”
Tariq Ramadan, What I Believe
“In Ramadan, you should eat less and think more.”
Tariq Ramadan
“No one must ever let power or social, economic, or political interest turn him or her away from other human beings, from the attention they deserve and the respect they are entitled to. nothing must ever lead to a person to compromise this principle or faith in favor of a political strategy aimed at saving or protecting a community from some peril. The freely offered, sincere heart of a poor, powerless individual is worth a thousand times more in the sight of God than the assiduously courted, self-interested heart of a rich one.”
Tariq Ramadan, The Messenger: The Meanings of the Life of Muhammad
“Man is certainly free, but he is responsible for this freedom before God as before men. This responsibility is inevitably moral. In order of this morality, to be free is to protect the freedom of others and their dignities.”
Tariq Ramadan, Islam, the West and the Challenges of Modernity
“الإسلام لايقيم عالما مغلقا للمرجعية بل يعتمدعلى مجموعة من المبادئ الشمولية التي يمكن أن تتطابق مع أسس وقيم معتقدات وتقاليد دينية”
Tariq Ramadan, على خطى النبي
“لا تكن مسلما صالحا في المسجد ومسلما طالحا في المجتمع، ولكن كن مسلما صالحا في المسجد ومسلما فاعلا في المجتمع.”
Tariq Ramadan
“الوحي يفصح عن نفسه بأنه نذير خير وأمر أخلاقي شديد الحزم ينشر الإلهام الروحي بقدر ماينظم الشكل الواضح للطقوس الدينية”
Tariq Ramadan, على خطى النبي
“إن شاء الله;تعبر عن الحدود,عن شعور التواضع من جانب الذي يتصرف وهويعلم أن الله وحده بيده كل مايحدث,بما يتجاوز مابإستطاعة المرء قوله أو فعله”
Tariq Ramadan, على خطى النبي
“القراءة المتعصبة للنصوص لا علاقة لها بالنصوص البتة بل بعقلية قارئ النصوص”
Tariq Ramadan
“هذا إعتراف أن عملية وضع هذه المبادئ سابقة للإسلام وتتجاوزه,لأن الإسلام ورسالته تأكيد لجوهر معاهدةسبق للضميرالإنساني صياغتهابمعزل عن دين”
Tariq Ramadan, على خطى النبي
“I am too old to think that numbers are creating change”
Tariq Ramadan
“Acknowledged differences may create mutual respect, but hazy misunderstandings bring forth nothing but prejudice and rejection.”
Tariq Ramadan, Islam, the West and the Challenges of Modernity
“The 'fires'n that produce thick, rarely innocent, often strategic smoke should therefore be scrutinized. they should be known and identified; and when they involve dishonesty, lies, or manipulation, they they should be ignored.”
Tariq Ramadan, What I Believe
“Je suis ravi pour ces révoltes qui se font entendre un peu partout dans le monde. Une chaine s’est brisée. En revanche, je reste très vigilant car nous avons vu comment les américains étaient impliqués en Tunisie et comment ils le sont avec l’armée de l’administration de Moubarak. En réalité nous avons deux dictateurs qui sont partis mais deux systèmes restent à réformer. Nous devrions tendre vers une démocratie transparente et incorruptible. Or, qui souhaite cela aujourd’hui ? Surement pas le gouvernement américain et encore moins les européens qui n’ont cessé de cautionner et de profiter des avantages des dictateurs. Et les Etats-Unis ne voudraient pas d’une vraie démocratie « transparente ». Même si Barack Obama clame le contraire, son administration a un tout autre programme.”
Tariq Ramadan
“Je voulais vous faire sourire, et mes larmes ont coulé. Je voulais vous faire oublier, et la mort m'a rattrapé. Je voulais vous offrir ce que vous m'avez donné. On ne sait jamais n'est-ce pas ? Il se peut qu'un bien soit notre mal, et qu'un mal soit notre bien. Sait-on jamais ? Je vous offre donc ce sourire, louange à l'Unique de toutes les façons, et que la Paix vous accompagne, et Sa lumière, et Sa chaleur.”
Tariq Ramadan
“Intellectual modesty is humility as to what I know; intellectual humility is modesty as to what I do not know”
Tariq Ramadan
“أزمة روحانية

الأزمة الحقيقية بين المسلمين هي -في الأساس- أزمة روحانية. بيد أنّ الأمر لا يتعلق بكون الروحانية أكثر أو أقل، ولكن بالمكانة التي نمنحها إياها في حياتنا. بعضنا منغمس بشدة في القضايا الاجتماعية والسياسية حتى أنه ينسى قلبه ومعنى حياته، وبعضنا متقد في النواحي الوجدانية حتى أنه ينسى الإنسانية و العالم وتحدياته. أزمة الروحانية هي إذن الفهم الخاطئ لجوهرها وعملها ومكانتها. الإيمان هو إصلاح النفس والكون، والروحانية هي إبقاء النور في قلوبنا والمعنى في عقولنا مما يقربنا من الواحد الأحد، هي تصلح سلوكياتنا وتذكرنا بالموت.
أن نحيا حياة سوية هو ببساطة أن لا ننسى الموت وحتمية أن نموت على الخير، ذلك نور الروحانية.”
Tariq Ramadan
“Deeply, simply: he who cannot love cannot understand.”
Tariq Ramadan, In the Footsteps of the Prophet: Lessons from the Life of Muhammad
“One would love nonetheless to know how to be a man, how to be a woman before God, in the mirror of one's own conscience, in the looks of those who surround us. One would wish to find the strength to beautify one's thoughts and to purify one's heart. It is everyone's hope and expectation to live in serenity and to plod along in transparency: the palms of the hands patiently directed towards heaven, at the heart of all this modernity.”
Tariq Ramadan, Islam, the West and the Challenges of Modernity
“Always walking along despite the dangers and adversities, despite the injustices and horrors, trusting in God so as not to despair of men and events.”
Tariq Ramadan, Islam, the West and the Challenges of Modernity
“Duboko i jednostavno: onaj ko ne može voljeti, ne može ni razumjeti.”
Tariq Ramadan, In the Footsteps of the Prophet: Lessons from the Life of Muhammad
“المفارقة في جروحنا هي أنها تولّد آلامنا وتساعدنا على أن نكبر في آن، فلا بدّ أن نتعلم كيف نعيش معها؛ حيث إننا ما نصنع بمعاناتنا. بعض الناس تحرر أنفسها من هذه المعاناة، وبعضهم مكبّل بسلاسلها، وبعضهم غارق فيها... قل لي ماذا أنت فاعل بآلامك، أقول لك مَن تكون.”
Tariq Ramadan
“We have to watch the world, and watch ourselves, with the humility of those who know, in the very depths of their being, that learning to become human is a process that never ends.”
Tariq Ramadan, The Quest for Meaning: Developing a Philosophy of Pluralism
“It is impossible to live in autarchy, to make the testimony of faith, pray and fast and go to pilgrimage only, far from men and worrying about no one except oneself. It is worth repeating that to be with God is tantamount to being with men; to carry faith is tantamount to carrying the responsibility of a continuous social commitment. The teaching that we should extract from zakat is explicit: to posses is tantamount to having to share.”
Tariq Ramadan, Islam, the West and the Challenges of Modernity
