This is the 31st part of this series, reading The Qur’an; A New Translation by Abdel Haleem. We’ll occasionally compare that to other translations and with tafsirs for clarification. We’re also reading each “chapter” [surah] in order of revelation [mostly] rather than the order in which they are typically printed. If you missed some of this series, you can see: my 1st post on surahs 1 & 2. my 2nd post on surahs 96, 68 & 73. my 3rd post on surahs 74, 111 & 81. my 4th post on surahs 87, 92, 89, 93, 94… Read more

For instance, if you Google the word, “faith”, you’ll see it defined in two very different contexts. 1. complete trust or confidence in someone or something. 2. strong belief… Read more

I hate that I have to explain this yet again. Hopefully this one last time will be all I ever need say about it from now on. The list of atheist organizations includes the Center for Inquiry, the American Humanist Association, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, Foundation Beyond Belief and Secular Student Alliance, among many others. Not all of them have “atheist” in their name because if you use that word, then you have to explain what you mean by that, and… Read more
