8/9/09 Quote from Reza Shah-Kazemi

"If the concept of unity dominates the mind, it is the principle of compassion that governs the heart in Islam. Compassion is to oneness what radiance is to the sun: It is through compassion that the oneness of God most brilliantly shines forth and reveals its fundamental nature. Since compassion stems from oneness, it not only radiates, it also integrates; it exerts a merciful attraction upon all outward multiplicity: "My Mercy encompasses all things" (Quran: chapter 7, verse 156)."

PS: Thank you Dr Zaineb for bringing this to my attention.
