Ministry of Imam W. Deen Mohammed Reading Room
"O Allah, guide us, forgive us our faults, and grant us the blessings of faith. I bear witness there is no deity except Allah and I bear witness Muhammad is His Servant and His Messenger. Peace be upon him, his descendants, his companions, the righteous servants, all of them, and upon us in America and throughout the world. We thank Allah for this religion (Al Islam) and for taking the burdens off our minds—off our spiritual minds. We thank Allah for this religion that has made it possible for our spirit and our intellect to come together in some kind of peaceful state so that the human being will be at peace with himself and at peace with Allah.
Allah's gift to us was the Quran. He used Prophet Muhammad (SAW). Before Prophet Muhammad, the human being called himself two separate entities, one spirit, and the other human. It was because of the revelation of this Quran that human beings came to see themselves as one entity and to see the spiritual life as an aspect of the human life. They came to see the intellectual life as an aspect of the human life. They came to see the human being as one entity.
We came to know that the intellect is also a creation of G-d. And that the human intellect will find its happiness when it comes to faith, when it has faith in G-d. When it puts faith in G-d above intellect, faith above logic; when the human being comes to that state of obedience to God, then the intellect has come to the right order for getting blessings from G-d. When the intellect can accept that kind of relationship - complete service, faithful to his G-d, then the intellect and the human spirituality, the human soul embrace each other and become one as they were created to be by Almighty G-d. Then with intellect and soul working together, obeying G-d; G-d evolves them both to higher and higher achievements in this world. This is the great blessing Jesus was a sign of: that reconciliation was coming, agreement between the soul and the intellect was coming. In Prophet Muhammad it was fulfilled— agreement between soul and intellect." Imam W. Deen Mohammad
