The Thinking Muslim is not in reference to any particular person, rather, it is an attribute and a quality of an individual. It is a Muslim who not only thinks deeply about his own faith but also about the society in which he/she resides. This quality necessitates this Muslim to think beyond the self and observe the world and identify ways to make it a better place to live. The Thinking Muslim is passionate not only about the fundamentals of his/her faith but also social justice.
You are the best nation produced [as an example] for mankind. You enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah. (Qur’an 3:110)
I started this blog to share things which I find interesting and fascinating about Islam, which I hope will lead to a stronger spiritual and social development. I hope the readers find the articles on this blog just as intriguing as I found them while penning them down.
I ask Allah to bless me in this endeavor and make it beneficial for myself and others in this life and the afterlife.
I am an American raised Muslim and a student of Islamic sciences who:
- Has a B.S. degree in Information Technology
- Has a B.A. degree in Islamic Studies
- Working full time for a Muslim based non-profit organization in the U.S.
This blog is sort of like my personal space to share ideas with the world and discuss things of interest to me related to Islam and current affairs. Hope you like it!
