I am a Muslim, who believes in the One God, Creator of Heavens and Earth and all between. Honor your body from being intoxicated and do not take own life. Honor your parents. Be kind to fellowman. Be tolerant. Care about the environment and animals. Be peaceful. Have belief that all human beings are equal, as the Holy Qur'an states "Oh, human kind, we created you from a man and a woman and made you into nations and tribes so that you know each other. The best of you in the Eyes of God is the most righteous." It is fundamental to have justice, as it is the foundation of our life.
