When we look at the state of Muslims we are often led to seek out political, social or cultural explanations of why the Ummah is in such a state of disarray. We seldom look at the problem from another angle: How sacred is Islam to Muslims? How sacred is the Prophet to Muslim? God’s Book, the Qur’an? Perhpas if we were to re-examine just how sacred Islam is to us, we’ll see more clearly where the solutions lay.
