Q: What is the difference between spirituality and religion?
The Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan: Religion, in many cases, is organized with teachings or dogma and ritual that support it. Spirituality is that which comes from the nature of the individual. We are by nature, as the Holy Qur’an teaches, righteous. And when you act in a righteous manner and do good from within, that is not “religion,” that is the exercise of the spirituality of your being. That’s not “religion,” that is the nature of God and the nature of His Creation. Remember that Qur’an says, “This day I have perfected for you your religion, completed my favor on your and chosen for you Islam as a religion,” because we’re in a world of religion. But Islam is not a religion, it is a world; and that world comes out of the nature from God that is the nature of every human being except the rebellious devil.
