“Clearly, if all of the world followed his view that we are all children of the same God, that we need to be able to melt our faith and our politics and our social work into a unit, the world would be a much healthier place.”

“…when people really get to meet the folks who are a part of the Hizmet Movement and see their genuine sense of love and respect, then, over time they come to realize that this is not something as a put-on, it’s really who you are, and you are living a legitimate way of expressing your faith and your Islam.”

“I do believe that the Hizmet Movement is working towards creating connections and lowering barriers, and I commend everyone for that.”

“I’m impressed that the Movement goes all over world to try and provide education where education standards are not very high. That is a very courageous and a very selfless thing to do. I commend the movement for that.”
