InterfaithRamadan 2013

As the world gets smaller, open communication and meaningful dialogue between diverse communities and individuals becomes even more important. Social media, for all its perceived flaws, can be an incredible tool for cooperative, constructive and positive interaction between people of different religious traditions and humanistic beliefs. 

With that in mind, this upcoming month-long Interfaith Ramadan blog project will explore the Holy Month, not only from a Muslim viewpoint, but also from Christian, Jewish, cultural, and socio-political perspectives.

  1. Jazakallahu Khayrun, May Allah protect you and grant you the highest of Jannah (alfirdows)


  2. May Allah bless you and all your efforts....

  3. May Allah bless you if he chooses to put you on the right path no one besides the almighty could move you. I have heard your interview on radio 5 with your father and prayed my faith could be as strong as yours may Allah keep you on the right path.

  4. I have just heard your interview on the radio may Allah bless you.

  5. Assalaam 3alaykum wa rahmatuLlaahi wa barakaatuh

  6. Assalaam 3alaykum wa rahmatuLlaahi wa barakaatuh

  7. Assalam alaikum,

    I read an article about you on, and I have to say Im very happy for you. Praise to Allah for guiding you towards the right path. Be sure to help spread the message of Islam so that many more people can be enlightened just as you have. I wish you all the best.

  8. I'm sorry, I just don't understand why you would suddenly feel like Islam was the right path for you. I will be the first to admit my ignorance, and I'm trying to understand! But why? I'm so confused about Islam and from an outside perspective it seems to be a religion that is at war with itself with polar views on the interpretation of the Quaraan?
