My last post was about the attributes God loves. But does God love everyone regardless of what they do? In part 2 of the conversation, I will address the attributes God does not love. I would keep my opinion to myself as I will be quoting from the Qur’an itself- considered the literal word of God by Muslims. Before we delve into who, or what, God does not love, it is critically important to keep a few things in mind,... Read more

God is all loving. Most monotheists, including Muslims believe in that. One of the ‘99 names of God’ in the Qur’an is Al Wadood, or ‘All Loving’. Does God love everyone? If not, then how do we know who He loves and what attributes , or actions, does He love? A small sample of passages from the Bible is also shared at the end of this article. The politically correct answer is that God loves everyone. But as we will... Read more

The independence of our nation on this July 4th is a stark reminder of the foundations our nation was built upon. It is certainly a day to rejoice. It is also a reminder of all the sacrifices the founders of the country made to ensure we live in a free society. It is also a good time to review the pledge of allegiance and reflect upon the state of the society we currently live in. America is at a crossroad... Read more

The Qur’an is the literal word of God. It is the holiest book for Muslims. Most of the Muslims have read the Qur’an in Arabic- without understanding much of it. However most Muslims, and this may be something that may be a surprise to you. have not read the Qur’an in their native language cover to cover, even once in their lifetime. There are many reasons for this. One of the big reasons is that we consider Qur’an to be... Read more

"So peace (Salam) is on me the day I was born, the day that I die, and the day that I shall be raised up to life (again)"! And their saying: Surely we have killed the Messiah (Christ), Isa (Jesus) son of Marium (Mary), the messenger of Allah (God); and they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but it appeared to them so (like Isa) and most surely those who differ therein are only in a doubt about it; they have no knowledge respecting it, but only follow a conjecture, and they killed him not for sure. Nay, Allah raised him up unto Himself; and Allah is Exalted in Power, Wise. Read more

Pope Francis made a historic visit to Iraq this weekend. It was the first ever by a pope to the country, amid rising concerns for Covid-19 and safety. He also met with Ayatollah Sistani-considered one of the top religious leaders of Shia Muslims around the world. This was a great example of Christian-Muslim dialogue, an aspect that was almost completely ignored by mainstream America media. Pope Francis has always been a proponent of building peace and harmony between people of... Read more

President Biden’s inauguration called for healing of a nation. He laid down his priorities, including fighting the Covid-19 pandemic. Regardless of where you are on the political spectrum, you have to be concerned about how deeply divided we have become as a nation. This threat to the “one nation under God”, is more dangerous than the dangers posed by the once-in-a-lifetime pandemic caused by Covid-19. Make no mistake, the pandemic that has victimized nearly 25 million Americans and taken the... Read more

How many times we see a piece of news or information on social media that turns out to be totally false or baseless? How often do we feel compelled to share it on our social media platform without confirming it first? Are we not responsible for spreading fake news? With the fact-checking in vogue nowadays, the Qur’an called for it some 1400 years ago, as mentioned below. Be truthful. How many times have you forwarded a facebook or Whatsapp message... Read more
