Coming from a Christian background I found it interesting Mr. Nasr's statement about how Islam was a religion of proper practice rather than a religion of proper belief. I am sorry to say that I am more unfamiliar with the Quran than I would care admit so was interested if there would be others out there who could help me understand this point. It would also be interesting for me to understand whether this works in a dialectical manner, that is between belief and practice, or if these two points work in a more hierarchical manner? It seems that by clarifying this, the split could then be understood as either more in parallel with what Mr. Nasr noticed in Christian denominations or perhaps something altogether different.
