"Let us then study the duties of man, as the great majority interpret
them, according to the verses of the Koran and the Traditions of the
Prophet.... The healthy human body is the temple in which the flame
of the Holy Spirit burns, and thus it deserves the respect of
scrupulous cleanliness and personal hygiene. Prayer is a daily
necessity, a direct communication of the spark with the universal
flame. Reasonable fasting for a month in every year, provided a
man's health is not impaired thereby, is an essential part of the
body's discipline through which the body learns to renounce all
impure desires.... Thus far I have described those tenets of Islam
which are professed and held in common by all Muslims of any and
every sect or subsect."
