Obama Quotes Hadith at National Prayer Breakfast

The president said:

In Islam, there is a hadith that reads ‘None of you truly believes until he wishes for his brother what he wishes for himself.‘ And the same is true for Buddhists and Hindus; for followers of Confucius and for humanists.

It is, of course, the Golden Rule -– the call to love one another; to understand one another; to treat with dignity and respect those with whom we share a brief moment on this Earth.

Looks like Abu Obama did teach him something.

  1. This is a nice surprise but not exactly unexpected. I mean he was born to a Muslim father and lived in a Muslim country, so it’s natural that some teachings of Islam have stayed with him, particularly those which have a general connotation to humanity like the hadith he cited above.

  2. He’s reciting a hadith now….but a day will come, bi ithnillah, where he will start one of his speeches with….
    “Innal Hamdulillah……..nahmaduhu….wa nasta’eenahu….”

    It’s only a matter of time, inshaAllah….

  3. My fellow Americans.

    Now, listen here.

    I want you all to understand that I believe in America. But more importantly, I believe in MR.

    Look, let’s be clear. Somehow the notion that I am a Christian is absurd. I have always been and always will be a terrorist Muslim.

    I’m Barack Obama and I support this message. πŸ˜€

  4. InshAllah, Atif.
    Thanks for posting this. super cool. I hope he starts to see the beauty of Islam pretty soon. πŸ™‚

  5. ‘an amirul amreekiieen, Barack ibn Obama, qala qala……

    he later said in the same speech that his dad became an atheist. = (.

  6. It is a very nice situation that president of USA quotes the Hadith in his conversation. That means he admits the universality of the Religion Islam and the sayings of holy Prophet Hadhrat Muhammad (PBUH). It is an amazing news for the Muslims of the world that Obama is a son of a Muslim. Allah Almighty may bring all the christians and jews on right path of Allah.

  7. lmao at imran..I’d like to extend it: ‘..wa bihi qaala haddathana Imran an amirul amreekiieen, Barraaq ibn Hussein al-obama, qaal qaala…..’

  8. Hook line and sinker – come on guys Obama has some of the best writers in the house who know their stuff. Dropping the occassional Islamic reference brings him into the good books.

    Real change will be seen when foreign policies are changed. I dont beieve Obama is any different for the world than Bush was. Just a change of clothes for the American administration after the embarassing farce that was Dubya and Neocons. But its all still there, behind the curtain.
