"Speaking of the distrust

of anything that might be described as 'romantic' or 'picturesque' which is so common in our time, Frithjof Schuon remarks that 'the "romantic" worlds are precisely those in which God is still probable; when people want to get rid of Heaven it is logical to start by creating an atmosphere in which spiritual things appear out of place; in order to declare successfully that God is unreal they have to construct around man a false reality, a reality that is inevitably inhuman because only the inhuman can exclude God. What is involved is a falsification of the imagination and so its destruction ...' 
[footnote: Understanding Islam, Frithjof Schuon (London: Allen & Unwin, 1963), p. 37. ]

-pg. 210 of Islam and the Destiny of Man by Charles Le Gai Eaton (Hasan 'Abd al-Hakim) - God have mercy on him!
