"The function of religion means that faith is a lamp in our lives which illuminates the path for people. It is also a factor which pushes people towards this path. Religion has two fundamentals. The first one is connected to reason, a path of clarification through which religion clarifies to people the road their lives take and where they will return. The second fundamental is the creation of a motive within people to encourage them to act in conformity with the insight their intellect provides them with. Intellect addresses the heart, the soul and the ego which illustrate the motive for action and progress. It intellectually reveals to people their path in all aspects of their lives" - Habib Ali Al Jufri
