A Ramadan Prayer for My Sikh Brothers and Sisters

In the Name of God, the Compassionate, the Infinitely Merciful 

In the wake of this horrible tragedy in Wisconsin (and also the burning of a mosque to the ground in Missouri), all I can do is offer my heartfelt condolences to the victims’ families and the entire Sikh community in Wisconsin. My heart ached in pain when I saw what this barbarian did to innocent people who peacefully gathered to do nothing more than glorify our Lord in worship.

And I also offer this prayer:

Lord God, Beloved Lord of the Heavens and the Earth

Hear my prayer, Beloved King of Kings

Send down Your mercy and grace upon the Sikhs in Wisconsin 

Shower them with Your soothing comfort to ease their pain

Protect them and every community of faith from the attacks of the wicked 

Help bring all communities of faith together in brother- and sisterhood

Stand with us as we stand with them in this moment of pain and tragedy.

In Your Most Holy Name I ask this of You, Beloved. Amen.

    Aw, this was a really good post. Spending some
    time and actual effort to generate a really good article… but what can
    I say… I put things off a whole lot and don’t seem to get anything done.

A Muslim's Mixed Feelings About "Noah"
In the Name of God: the Infinitely Compassionate and Merciful Beloved Lord I must admit: I really, really want to see "Noah." As a Muslim, I was raised with this epic story of one of God's greatest Prophets of all time: [LONG] BEFORE those [who now deny resurrec­tion] did Noah’s people call i

What "Allahu Akbar" Really Means
In the Name of God: the Infinitely Merciful and Compassionate Beloved Lord It is a very common Islamophobe claim that the phrase, "Allahu Akbar" is the "Muslim battle cry." They base this claim on the fact that many Muslim extremists yell out "Allahu Akbar" before their acts of barbarism. Indeed,

Learning to Walk with King Solomon in the New Year
In the Name of God: the Infinitely Merciful and Compassionate Beloved Lord At first blush, it may seem strange that I would want to walk with King Solomon. The picture painted of him by many is unflattering to say the least. Yet, Muslim belief about him is that he was a pious Prophet of God and a
