Sufi Muslims Reformers Heretics

Why are Sufis Islam’s Most Deviant Heretics?

Parenting: Why Nonsense is So Important

A child brings many blessings, but one that isn’t really talked about that much is how a child enables us to be child-like again.

Two Scribes in Islam

Flicking Angels

I was about 8 years old when I first learned about the Islamic belief in two angels on our shoulders who make note of all our thoughts and acts.

Israel, The Good Enemy

By Mudar Zahran Israel’s relationship to the Palestinians has always been globally approached with standardized heavy criticism made to Israel.  The main charges waved in Israel’s face have always been “the Disapropriate use of force” and “discrimination.” Israel’s critics, either willingly or out of ignorance, choose to overlook the way many Arab countries mistreat Palestinians.

Muslim Refugee Women

Among Refugees, Mothers and Children Must Always Come First

In the plight of people, especially refugees, we must always, always do what we can to protect women and children first. This is without question and without compromise.
