So we are exiles from humanity’s current inhumanity, and from the desolating winds of atheistic post-normativity; we are not exiles from our good-hearted neighbours or their best traditions and motives; as the hadith says,
‘Wisdom is the lost riding-beast of the believer; wherever he finds it, he has the most right to it.’
~ Abdal Hakim Murad, Travelling Home: Essays on Islam in Europe, page 206.
Murad believes modern Britain to be no longer a land of the ahl al-kitab, but of the ahl al-kidhab, the People of Denial, who call all faith a falsehood. See p. 194.
