Blind Faith

Sir Abdullah Archibald Hamilton Bart
"Since arriving at an age of discretion, the beauty and the simple purity of Islam have always appealed to me. I could never, though born and brought up as a Christian, believe in the dogmatic aspect of the Church, and have always placed reason and commonsense above blind faith."
Sir Abdullah Archibald Hamilton Bart
