Let us remember the historic role of "The University" in the study, interpretation, and transmission of the great humanistic traditions of the world. Our search for global peace in an inter-connected, crowded world with rising expectations, needs to understand and internalise these many lessons more than at any time in the past. Washington 2001]

In Islam the Faithful believe in Divine justice and are convinced that the solution of the great problem of predestination and free will is to be found in the compromise that God knows what man is going to do, but that man is free to do it or not.

Quote - 229

with a Muslim majority in some 44 countries and nearly a quarter of the globe's population, it should be evident that our world cannot be made up of identical people, sharing identical goals, motivations or interpretations of the Faith.
