City of Brass

Out of India

I’ve returned from my two-week trip to India and I’d like to thank Aamer for doing such an amazing job as guest blogger in my absence! This isn’t Aamer’s first time at City of Brass; he has also written two posts on Hajj: one about technology and the other likening Hajj to a near-death experience (in a good sense). Also, during Ramadans past he has written about Zakat and fasting. If you enjoyed Aamer’s writing and want more of it, I enthusiastically suggest you check out his own blog, Notes from the Heart.

India was a visceral experience as always, and one of these days I will try to write something down about my observations there during my repeated travels there. But I’m back and there’s plenty going on right here at home in America to write about!

Abrahamic Convergence - inspiration, forgiveness, and tragedy
This week is a truly portentous one for Muslims, Jews, and Catholics. In one week, we have Yom Kippur, the Day of Arafat and Eid ul Adha, and Pope Francis' first visit to the United States. I like the term "Abrahamic Convergence" for this sort ...
