“Do not praise your own faith exclusively,
so that you disbelieve all the rest.
If you do this, you will miss much good
~ nay, you will miss the whole truth of the matter.
God the omniscient and omnipresent
cannot be confined to any one creed for he says
“Wheresoever ye turn, there is the face of Allah.”
Everybody praises what he knows.
His god is his own creature
and in praising it,
he praises himself,
which he would not do
if he were just.
His dislike is based on ignorance.”
XIII AD Sufi philosopher Ibn Arabi
