‘Moderate’ Islam

“It is only when we realise that ‘moderate’ Islam is an extreme interpretation that we understand the fanaticism that we see in its proponents. Much more interestingly, we should aspire to be radical in the sense of going to the roots of things and fundamentalists in the sense of returning to fundamentals rather than peripheral matters.”

– Imam Hajj Abdassamad Clarke
