An American Muslim’s prayer: Forget love, let’s just be civil (COMMENTARY) - The Washington Post. Love is a nice sentiment. Real love, though, is work. I can have love in my heart, but to love someone is to know that person. It means having compassion and empathy, and being engaged. You and the person you love have to commit to each other. But I do not know you enough to love you, and I do not want to have to get to know you that well. It is too much work. I do appreciate the idea. I know it is... Continue reading

Ben Carson’s Islamophobia Isn’t Just Hateful. It Doesn’t Make Any Sense. | ThinkProgress. Carson is seemingly unaware as to the actual purpose of taqiya. According to Hussein Rashid, a professor of religious studies at Hofstra University who sits on the editorial board of the Islamic Monthly, the practice does allow Muslims leeway to obscure their beliefs — but only when faced with the threat of persecution or death.

An Open Letter to Pope Francis by Dr. Hussein Rashid. As you speak about the travails of the world, I fear that too many write their own hope and aspirations on to you.

The truths that we follow are eternal. The process of justice is ongoing. The performance of mercy does not end. Continue reading
