I believe this government cannot endure, permanently, half slave and half free. I do not expect the Union to be dissolved; I do not expect the house to fall; but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing, or all the other.
Either Islam will remain or Jahliyyah; Islam cannot accept or agree to a situation which is half-Islam and half-Jahliyyah. Islam says that truth is one and cannot be divided; if it is not the truth, it is a falsehood. The mixing and co-existency of truth and falsehood is impossible.
