All Mystics Value All Paths.

"Every single human being was a unique and unrepeatable revelation of one of God's hidden attributes, and the only God one will ever know is the Divine Name inscribed on our innermost self.  This vision of a personal Lord was conditioned by the faith tradition into which a person was born.  Thus the mystic must see all faiths as equally valid, and is at home in a synagogue, mosque, temple or church, for, as God says in the Quran: "Wheresoever ye turn, there is the face of Allah."

                Muid ad-Din ibn al-Arabi (d, 1240)
