The Noahide religion or proto-islam as it has justly and very accurately been called (Hanifiyyah in Arabic) which preceeded islam and upon which Islam was based and modelled is the path of Abraham which people may follow in order to join G-d's holy nation of priests and prophets as non-Jewish ministers whether men among them are Mahul or Areil. The religion was described by the Rambam whose sons were proponents of Jewish Sufism. The approach holds up to rational scrutiny and criticism all other existing religions and encourages replacing all methods of worship one may have inherited in order to adopt various modified Jewish traditions. While people in other categories can be considered true believers (or at least Noachite law-abiding) their ministries are neither regarded as authoritative nor legitimate and they are invited to attach themselves to this ministry instead. For people in this category, although seeking wisdom through learning with others is encouraged, only this ministry is valid.
