The Primal Happiness Show

This week's show is with Mamoon Yusaf is a Thought Leader, Peace Activist, and Transformational Coach of the Muslim community.

He is the star of the popular TV shows, ‘The Quran Coach’ and ‘Taqwa Transformation’, where he changes people’s lives through his powerful message of the Truth of the Inside-Out paradigm.

He’s the creator of the Quran For Busy People blog & podcast which has a current subscription base of over 10,000 people, from all parts of the world. His wildly popular training programs include: Instant Ihsan; Meet Him & Marry Him; Quran For Busy People; Effortless Transformation; and many more.

Mamoon currently lives in Barcelona, Spain and is working on in his upcoming book, provisionally titled ‘Timeless Wisdom’ and loves travelling all over the world to speak and hang out with clients and friends.
 
In this show we explored why there are so many Muslim terrorists if, as Mamoon asserts, Islam is a religion of peace. We got into lots of things in this episode including the real reason that people commit acts of terrorism, the context of the verses in the Quran that terrorist use to justify their acts, and why describing terrorists as Islamic terrorists is allowing Isis to win.

What you’ll learn from this episode:

  • Mamoom said that the word 'If' is in the show title only because we don't understand what Islam is really about. It is a religion of peace. Islam means submission or surrender – however, it was derived from the root word “salam”. From this root word, you can also derive the words peace and safety.
  • Terrorists are cherry picking the verses that justify why they're killing people. Those verses don't make sense in context of the parts of the Quran or the Quran as a whole.
  • Terrorists have 'disease in their hearts', a state of mental dis-ease. They're doing what they're doing because they are at war with themselves, the world and God. This seems to me to be true for anyone who is behaving in ways that look horrible.
  • How can we help change things for the better? By being at peace with ourselves and the world. And by understanding that describing terrorism as Islamic terrorism we are allowing Isis - and their warped definition of Islam - win.
