Nashwan's religious beliefs predominately follow the Abrahamic faiths. He considers himself a Muslim, and accept the belief of a single entity or creator that is responsible for the creation of the Universe. The complexities of life from the solar system to our circulatory system have led him to reason that life was in fact designed and the seeming random nature of living and nonliving systems are in fact created and controlled by this creator, God. God can be described as an all knowing, Supreme Being; One that has no beginning and no end. A God, whose purpose in creating the earth and universe is for humans to live in and to enjoy. Teachings in the various religious texts as the Quran, Bible and Torah, say that to understand the Creator and our standing in the universe we must study life "from cradle to grave". Humans that accept and understand this reality are asked to show their thanks and appreciation to God in return for this gift of life, by simply taking care of one another and the gifts (earth) that we have been given. This resonates clarity of purpose in his life.
