    We have no high-school biology teachers in Mankato, MN, who practice Islam. I’m quite sure.

    However, we have a fair number of Somali youth who are feeling a bit disenchanted with the school system as it is. I think that if they saw at least a bit of their reflection in the teaching staff, more would take school seriously.

    Have you considered teaching in southern Minnesota?

    Thanks for the comment Asad. Glad you enjoyed the series on that book. I’m working on my Masters as well. Graduate school is a different animal than undergrad. Good luck!

    Mashallah very noble thoughts. Inshallah you will succeed in your endeavours. It will be good for kids to have a Muslim Biology teacher, especially so they may be enlightened on theories like Intelligent Design rather than be droned with Evolution hoaxes. Plus, readin your site tells me you follow a middle path which is essential to reach out to the new generation.

    May Allah help you. Best Wihes,

      My friends laughed and said about your web blog, I believe it is quite successfully done! Perfect job.

    Honestly, the way u introduced urself, I admit, I really fail to grasp why u had to mention that u are a muslim , while other details are so bleak. I think , people would like to know more about you(like me), the person u are….

    Hi Suni,
    I realize that my About page does not tell a lot about me. I prefer to let my posts speak for me. By reading my posts, visitors to the site learn about my interests, my opinions, and my dreams.
    As for mentioning that I am a Muslim, I think I view that differently from how you do. I am very proud of the fact that I am a Muslim, a worshipper of Allah and a follower of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. Also, many of my posts reference Islam and I say that I am Muslim to give those posts a context.

Could you list of every one of your shared pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    Clemmie, after trying out a couple different themes, now I use Titan. There are a bunch of different themes on wordpress. A different theme can dramatically change the layout of your site. Try a couple until you find one that suits you.
