Aboul Fotouh


"For us,

Islam is a way of life

adhered to by one-fifth of the world's population.

Sharia is a means whereby

justice is implemented, life is nurtured,

the common welfare is provided for,

and liberty and property are safeguarded."

This quote is from a paper written by Egyptian Presidental candidate Aboul Fotouh.  He is considered a voice for moderate Islam.  My husband went to hear him speak on Tuesday.  Late on Thursday, his car was hijacked and he was beaten.  He remains hospitalized.  Please learn about him and pray for his full recovery.  I believe we need people like him in the ummah, in Egypt and in the world.
