Knowledge, or Ilm, written in Arabic script. By British graffiti artist Mohammed Ali and British Photographer Peter Sanders.

Remedy for ignorance   
According to a tradition, the Prophet of Islam once remarked: "The remedy for ignorance is asking questions." If the ignorant man does not inquire; his ignorance will stay with him. But if he has a questioning mind, some knowledgeable person will answer him, and he will no longer remain ignorant. 

There is a saying in Arabic to the same effect: To know that you do not know is half the knowledge itself. If an ignorant person is not aware of his ignorance, he will continue to remain in the same state. But when he becomes aware of his ignorance, he sets about seeking for knowledge. 

He will try to turn his ignorance into knowledge. In this way his awareness of his ignorance will become the stepping stone leading towards full and comprehensive knowledge.

How did the US Founding Fathers view Islam?   
MANY MUSLIMS feel unwelcome in the United States in the aftermath of September 11, according to newspaper reports. Anecdotal evidence suggests that substantial numbers of Americans view their Muslim neighbors as an alien presence outside the limits of American life and history. While other minorities-African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans-were living within the boundaries of the present United States from the earliest days of the nation, Muslims are perceived to have had no part in the American experience.

A number of Americans may be surprised to learn that there may have been hundreds, perhaps thousands, of Muslims in the United States in 1776-imported as slaves from areas of Africa where Islam flourished. Although there is no evidence that the Founders were aware of the religious convictions of their bondsmen, it is clear that the Founding Fathers thought about the relationship of Islam to the new nation and were prepared to make a place for it in the republic.

In his seminal Letter on Toleration (1689), John Locke insisted that Muslims and all others who believed in God be tolerated in England. Campaigning for religious freedom in Virginia, Jefferson followed Locke, his idol, in demanding recognition of the religious rights of the "Mahamdan," the Jew and the "pagan." Supporting Jefferson was his old ally, Richard Henry Lee, who had made a motion in Congress on June 7, 1776, that the American colonies declare independence. "True freedom," Lee asserted, "embraces the Mahomitan and the Gentoo (Hindu) as well as the Christian religion."

CNN Special: Unwelcome The Muslims Next Door  
"Unwelcome: The Muslims Next Door," which debuted March 28, 2011 on CNN is a provocative, engaging, and at times disturbing look at examining who and what we are as a country.


Making eunuchs out of men

Diogenes the Cynic was a Greek philosopher and one of the founders of Cynic philosophy. Also known as Diogenes of Sinope he was born in Sinope (modern-day Sinop, Turkey) around 412 BCE. Diogenes was a very playful philosopher who had great wit when challenging the values and beliefs of his fellow citizens in ancient Athens. He lived in poverty and had contempt for all forms of luxury.

Following is an example of his cynicism:

A contemporary of Diogenes asked him, "Why is it that pupils leave you to go to other teachers, but rarely do they leave them to come to you?"

Diogenes replied, "Because one can make eunuchs out of men, but no one can make a man out of eunuchs".
