In a Nutshell

“To Allah belongs the east and the west.
He guides whom He wills to a straight path.”

[Qur’an 2:142 ]

“There is a cult of ignorance in the United States, and there has always been. The strain of anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that “my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.”

Fear

My fear is over.
It already happened.
Get over it.
Wake up.
Conquer the vampire within.

May Allah make it easy for all of us.

You can use it to hang yourself, or escape.
The choice is always yours.

Wake Up!

Learning to unlearn is no easy task. I should know – I was born into a Christian family and embraced Islam. But like everything else in life, beginning is always half done. The greatest truths are the simplest.

Are you courageous enough to let me burst your bubble?

If yes, then please watch the following clip.
