U.S. President Bush told world leaders ... "Faith changed my life a long time ago."
Participating in the Peace Culture Conference held by the U.N. General Council, Bush said that faith had changed his life a long time ago and had strengthened him in the face of adversity during his time as president. In his speech at the conference, scheduled to last 2 days and intended to construct a bridge between faiths and cultures, Bush said, “My faith will also support me in the rest of my life.”
Recent reports that many people across the world are now turning to religion have received wide coverage in the media. Thanks to this return to faith, people who believe are able to exhibit more positive, constructive and powerful behavior in the face of events that might appear to be unfortunate. In the Qur’an, Allah tells His servants to turn to the religion, the only means of salvation in this world and the Hereafter:
“So set your face firmly towards the True Religion, before a Day comes from Allah which cannot be turned back.” (Surat ar-Rum, 43)
“Turn your face towards the religion in pure natural faith," (Sura Yunus, 105)
