The true principles of Islam – Los verdaderos valores del Islam

When we think how few men of real religion there are,
how small the number of defenders and champions of the truth —
when one sees ignorant persons imagining that the principle of Islam
is hardness, severity, extravagance and barbarity —
it is time to repeat these words:
"Patience is beautiful, and God is the source of all succour." (Qur’an, XII:18)

— The Emir Abd al-Qadir al-Jaza’iri (1860)



Cuando uno piensa cuán pocos son los hombres de la verdadera religión, lo reducido del número de defensores y campeones de la verdad – cuando uno ve personas ignorantes que se imaginan que los valores del Islam son la dureza, la severidad, la extravagancia y la barbarie, es el momento de repetir estas palabras: "La paciencia es hermosa, y Dios es la fuente de todo socorro" (Corán, XII, 18)

— El emir Abd al-Qadir al Jaza’iri (1860)
