Reviving the Islamic Spirit (RIS) Conference 2009


I went to RIS 2009. These are some interesting quotes that I jotted down from the convention. Do note that some of them are not direct quotes.

Condemning everybody else but ourselves is a waste of time. - Dr. Yusuf Islam

"Credit card is a tool to buy things you don't need, with money you don't have, at a price you can't afford, and to impress people you don't even like." - Imam Yassir Fazaga

The mistake we make is that we judge the whole for what a small group did. - Shaykh Hamza Yusuf

Do not sell your religion to please other people. - Professor Tariq Ramadan

"Despair is not from the Muslim vocabulary." - Dr. Abdal Hakim Jackson

Indulge yourselves in multiple fields, but specialize in one. - Dr. Tareq Suwaidan

The founders of the largest population of Muslims in the world (Indonesia) were not millions in number. They were only nine. - Habib Ali Aljifri

Islam is perfect but Muslims are not. Just because the patient is sick doesn't mean the medicine is bad. - Imam Zaid Shakir
