Quotes Made at this Event

Newsweek - "

If you want my opinion...If you want a fatwa from me. I really consider it prohibited by the Islamic Law, to send a child to the Public school in this country.

That is my personal opinion. I would rather my child be illiterate.

Wallahi, as Allah is my witness, I swear to God...as Allah is my witness, I would rather my son was an illiterate, honorable street-sweeper, then that he was a Kafir, who loses his way in this world and denies his Lord.

Or falls into the worst forms of sin that he becomes so defiled by this world, that even his own parents don't recognize him.

" -Shaikh Hamza Yusuf
Newsweek - "In my moments of weakness, I read (it)" -Shaikh Hamza Yusuf
Knots - "Not like any other book you`ve ever Read" -Shaikh Hamza Yusuf
Panthay Chinese Muslim War - Note: SHY specifically recommended `Panthay Chinese Muslim War`. But that book doesn`t exist, as far as I can tell. This book covers the same subject, and seems to be the only one on the subject.
