“Islam in the culture of the Moslems, simply means peace. Peace with man, peace with all living things, which ultimately leads to peace with Allah. We believe deeply in the universal principles of the cosmological order and how every action has a reaction.

These principles also taught us how to treat others and how to create a hospitable environment for guests at our Caliphates.”
