This isn't just an Islam thing. Martin Luther is on record for saying "Reason is a whore, the greatest enemy that faith has; it never comes to the aid of spiritual things, but more frequently than not struggles against the divine Word, treating with contempt all that emanates from God.".

This is often abbreviated "Reason is the greatest enemy of faith.", and pretty much gets the same point across. So, Christians and Muslims can draw a little closer to each other and realize they're both not so different, in so much as they want people to stop thinking about their faith.

We might as well start snorting drugs while reading ramblings of crazy people.

Does the double dose of crazy cancel out (sort of -1 * -1) or make it worse (-1 + -1)? That could get ugly.
