Al-Kindi on Truth

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“We should not be ashamed to acknowledge truth from whatever source it comes to us, even if it is brought to us by former generations and foreign peoples. For him who seeks the truth there is nothing of higher value than truth itself.”

- Abu Yusef Yaqoub ibn Ishaq Al-Kindi

Note: Al-Kindi (801- 873 CE) is the father of Islamic Philosophy. He was also a scientist, a gifted mathematician, astronomer, physician, geographer, and musician. A Renaissance man in the Middle Ages.
