Bismillah hir Rahman nir Raheem
In the name of God, the Infinitely Good, the Merciful
This is my first entry as a member of the Word Press community. Like many Muslims, I am a refugee. I am a refugee from Xanga, an online blogging community that seems to be dominated by teenage Asian girls.
What I want to do here his express the objectives of my blog. I want to bring myself and others closer to Allah. I want to comment on the news of the day with intelligence, compassion, and wit. Sometimes I might write a line or two of poetry to express my creative side. Occasionally I like to comment on music though my only qualifications to do so are that I enjoy music and I have some training in literary analysis. I don’t take myself too seriously. In my line of work, teaching, I think to do so is rather stupid.
Let’s learn from each other, respect each other, and have some fun.
