The Study Quran by Seyyed Hossein Nasr
"A good English translation of the Quran. Commentary is traditional and conservative and does not include more recent interpretations."

“The human being is not a fallen being in need of redemption but rather a forgetful being who must be reminded of God and his own nature.”
Joseph E. B. Lumbard, Submission, Faith Beauty: The Religion of Islam
tags: islam

“Public service announcement: When you post Zakir Naik videos, or suggest that someone look to Zakir Naik for information regarding Islam, especially a non-Muslim, you open the door for people to mock Islam.”
Joseph E. B. Lumbard

“Most learning is not the result of instruction. It is rather the result of unhampered participation in a meaningful setting. Most people learn best by being "with it," yet school makes them identify their personal, cognitive growth with elaborate planning and manipulation.”
Ivan Illich, Deschooling Society

“Hatred, which could destroy so much, never failed to destroy the man who hated, and this was an immutable law.”
James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

“People who prefer to believe the worst of others will breed war and religious persecutions while the world lasts.”
Dorothy L. Sayers, The Letters of Dorothy L. Sayers. Vol. 1, 1899-1936: The Making of a Detective Novelist

“When you hate somebody...
you give him chance mastering your heart.”
Toba Beta, Master of Stupidity

“Self-education is the only possible education; the rest is mere veneer laid on the surface of a child's nature.”
Charlotte Mason
