Thats a great news.
General concept we have of Turkish people is limited to ultra secularistrs, Religion Hating extreme Liberals whose women wear bikinis in public on beaches, etc. lol , just like their other European cousins, but at heart they are good people. I have worked with some Turkish people and they are good people, gentle at heart and not too political. also very good looking people as well.
Its good to know this brother has a strong belief in faith. Faith is the key to success both in this world and here-after.
US's current Election is also between Extreme Religious Right wing, represent by Mike Huchabee who is using FAITH just like Bush did in his campaigns and Secularists, Liberals like Hilary Clinton, Obama, Ron Paul etc.
Religion plays a key role in USA. US is built upon Religious roots...Eventhough they don't have an official Religion, but Most Americans are Religious people in their way... and level of belief.
I would even say, American in general are more Faith driven than Pakistanis... Pakistanis are ALOT more Liberal when following the religion than Americans are, when it comes to following their own faiths.
Whethers its elections, or general life, or whatever, they follow their faith to the core. Attend religious services, and practice their faith in everyday life. Don't lie, don't steal, don't take bribe/RISHWAAT, etc. They are not perfect, but they are doing a much better job than most around the world, in terms of following the religion.... That's why they are the Most successful people in this world.
God only knows, what will happen in here-after. But if you have strong faith in God, God will have mercy on you, both in this world, and here after..
May Allah have mercy on us all, Ameen.
