Peace and greetings
I am a practicing Muslim living in the West. As a member of a religious minority, I have found that many people are not familiar with the personal aspect of this faith. For that reason, I decided to start this blog with the goal of collecting my thoughts, expressing in full what I believe, and making it available to those who wish to read it.
I hope to explore and deconstruct the mystery behind faith, question certain beliefs and cultural norms, and potentially bring about new understanding in the process. In short, I hope to make a confusing religion make a little bit more sense.
A word of caution: most of the issues I talk about are controversial or sensitive in nature. Although I do not intend to insult anyone, the nature of these topics necessitates a frank and open discussion. However, I will try my best to treat ideas that are considered sacred with the respect they deserve.
