The statement by UNESCO Laureate and VC CUICI, USA reads in parts:”The fear of God, Allah keeps the heart of a believer awake and enables him to distinguish right from wrong. The fear of God is the only virtue that brings honor to a believer, man or woman in Islam”.
“Islam teaches us to love one another; love our neighbours. ‘Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God and he who loves is of God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love. ‘Quran 7:57’, God has this level of love for all creations”.
