The BEST Religion

The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan of the Nation of Islam teaches a profound lesson about THE BEST RELIGION:
The Honorable Elijah Muhammad said, “Brother, the best religion is, ‘Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.’ When you look at all of the teachings of Jesus, you can boil it down to this basic principal, ‘Do unto others.’”

And when we look at the essence of all religions we find this “Golden Rule” to be the common thread:


African Traditional Proverb • One going to take a pointed stick to pinch a baby bird should first try it on himself to feel how it hurts.


Baha’i Faith • Blessed is he who preferreth his brother before himself.


Buddhism • Hurt not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful.


Christianity • Do unto others as you would have them so unto you.


Confucianism • Tse-kung asked, Is there one word that can serve as a principle of conduct for life? Confucius replied, It is the word ‘shu’ — reciprocity. Do not impose on others what you yourself do not desire.


Hinduism • Do naught to others which, if done to thee, would cause thee pain: this is the sum of duty.


Islam • No one of you is a believer until he desires for his brother that which he desires for himself.


Jainism • In happiness and suffering, in joy and grief, we should regard all creatures as we regard our own self.


Judaism • What is hateful to you, do not do to your fellow man. That is the entire Law, all the rest is commentary.


Shintoism • Be charitable to all beings, love is the representative of God.


Sikhism • Don’t create enmity with anyone as God is within everyone.


Taoism • Regard your neighbor’s gain as your gain and your neighbor’s loss as your loss.


Zoroastrianism • Whatever thou dost not approve for thyself, do not approve for anyone else. When thou hast acted in this manner, thou art righteous.
