On Islam and American Democracy
Commentary of Imam W. Deen Mohammad
Edited by Ronald B Shaheed
"We could not have this beautiful form of government we have, if the Qur'an had not come. there was no government like we have in these United States before the Qur'an. The Christians were not able to establish a government like this before the Qur'an. It was the Qur'an that guided the Founding Fathers to conceive what was in their own book, the Bible; and they used the Qur'an to arrive at the logic, supporting this philosophycalled, American democracy."
