3 April

I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.

Edward Everett Hale, born on 3 April 1822, Sun in Aries, Moon in Virgo, American writer (d. 1909)

Muhammad Abdul Aleem Siddique was an Islamic scholar and teacher who was born on 3 April 1892 (15 Ramadhan 1310), in Meerut, India. “As far as the common evils and accepted moral principles were concerned, no religion could have any difference, and in the spirit of tolerance and sympathy and the desire to establish peace, all of them were as one. The task of the religious leaders was to let the followers of each and every religion know the teachings of other religions, so that a spirit of fellowship could work together to spread the accepted moral principles and to fight the common evils.”
