The Origin of Islam and Its Universal Truth

Abstract

The speaker emphasized* the dual nature of creation and the secular/spiritual complementarity of the human self and soul (or spirit). The essence of life is one supreme cosmic light from which everything emanates and returns to. The human quest is to unify with this eternal truth by way of self/soul unison. Ethics, morality and service to others are essential for a balanced and fulfilled life. Traditional African way of life contains many lessons for our present day global harsh worldly emphasis.

*This discourse was delivered at a conference at the University of South Africa
