As he pleaded for his life, “I can’t breathe”, another innocent African American life was lost. The murder of George Floyd at the hands of four police officers is yet another unfortunate loss of a precious life, symptomatic of a widespread disease, as lethal as the Covid-19 pandemic. The disease is called racism and police brutality against African Americans and other minorities. “I can’t breathe” is a call for action. “I can’t breathe” is a plea to awaken our conscience…. Read more

We have been hearing people , including the extreme right wing, blaming God again- this time for the pandemic caused by Covid-19 virus as a punishment from God for all our sins and evil that exists in today’s world. These opinions are not limited to any single religion. I simply don’t think this is the case, and I will explain why. I think we were all blind sided by the Corona virus pandemic. As of writing this post, over a… Read more

Let me start by stating that Original sin is a Christian doctrine, not a Muslim or Jewish belief. However the debate has existed whether it was Adam or Eve who disobeyed God in the Garden of Eden and fell from grace. The Biblical narrative generally puts the blame on Eve, and the Qur’an clearly states it was Adam, as explained below. The focus of my interfaith work has been on highlighting the commonalities between Abrahamic faiths and Scriptures, but the… Read more

Like everyone around, I am still in shock and disbelief after hearing the news of the tragic death of NBA megastar Kobe Bryant. It has not sunk in yet. After all, he was more than a Lakers and an NBA star and his legend only grew after he retired from NBA about 4 years ago. It is also a stark reminder that we really don’t know what lies ahead of us despite planning hard for times to come. I have… Read more

After wishing our Christian cousins Merry Christmas, its time to reach out to our Jewish cousins to wish them a Happy Hanukkah (also spelled and pronounced Chanukah) to commemorate the rededication of the 2nd temple to the service of One true God. Jews around the nation and the world are celebrating the 8-day festival also known as Chanukah in the memory of the recapture of the 2nd temple from the King Antiochus IV, after he had taken over Jerusalem. The… Read more

Many Christians wonder if Muslims celebrate Christmas. Many Muslims wonder if they should celebrate Christmas. Still others wonder if they should wish their Christians friends, neighbors and colleagues Merry Christmas. Does wishing Merry Christmas mean one is endorsing the salvation doctrine, or against islamic teachings? Whether you like him or not, the recently impeached President Trump has openly declared he wants to bring “Merry Christmas” back into the holiday greetings. In the rising areligious, politically correct America, people have been… Read more

As I write this blog post in total darkness, without the internet and cell phone, my mind started to wander thousands of miles away to Kashmir, where millions others are also without cell phone, internet and basic necessities but for widely different reasons and under vastly different conditions. Far from a Hindu-Muslim or India-Pakistan conflict, there are widespread abuses of all religious minorities including Christians, as reported in this post. You see we have the power outage caused by PG&E,… Read more

Muslim Ummah remains divided across the world. Wars are raging between many Muslim countries, and sectarian violence and/or hate speeches are the norm in many other. The efforts to divide are orchestrated and well-funded. The truth is that much of the division based on our religion is against our religion and against the commandments of the Qur’an and Sunnah, the two sources we gave a lot of lip service to, as I will explain here. There are numerous socio-political reasons… Read more

A major Aramco oil field in Abqaiq, Saudi Arabia was hit by drones on Saturday sending shock waves throughout the world, causing oil prices to go up sharply and prompting world leaders to react. Fortunately, there were no human casualties during the oil field attacks The reaction was in sharp contrast to the world’s reaction to the ongoing attacks in Yemen causing human casualties. To be fair, the civil war (widely considered a proxy war between Iran and Saudi Arabia)… Read more
