"If, now, we turn from its historic background to its doctrine and to
its possibility of development in the future, we will find the same
potential universality. Take the central principle of 'Allah O Akbar.'
Here we find on one side divinity, on the other side infinity. For
what is the greater -- time, space, the starry heavens, intelligence,
knowledge? -- wherever existence goes there His greatness extends.
Greaterness here, to anyone who understands the implications of the
Arabic language, does not mean 'greaterness' as literally translated
into English. It means that everything else is within the womb of the
greater -- everything else is maintained and sustained by Divine
Power, including the furthest spaces of imagination." -Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah, Aga Khan III' foreword to 'Muhammad: A Mercy
to All Nations' by Al-Hajj Qassim Ali Jairazbhoy (London, United Kingdom)
