Muhammad Asad (formerly Leopold Weiss) (1900–1992)

Muhammad Asad (formerly Leopold Weiss) (1900–1992), an Austrian Jew who converted to Islam, spoke of Islam thus:

"Islam appears to me like a perfect work of architecture. All its parts are harmoniously conceived to complement and support each other; nothing is superfluous and nothing lacking; and the result is a structure of absolute balance and solid composure."
