Whoa, how long have you been back blogging?

And still a Laker's fan?

It's interesting how people make the irrational assumption that orthodoxy or even a faith of any kind automatically entails a certain bigotry. I've always found that this is quite the opposite. More often than not, history can attest to the positive effect that religion has had on tolerance and the unification of different races and cultures. It pushed the west out of the dark ages. It created a lasting rich empire from a few nomadic tribes in the deserts of Arabia. It extended the beacon of civilization to natives in the New World. Now, a serious orthodox faith might bring some normalcy to people rattled by desperate circumstances. If people acknowledged some of these benefits, our approach towards interacting with the Muslim world, or each other for that matter, would be a great deal more constructive.

Respectable Hajj Pilgrims

As'Salâm Alaikum Wa'Rahmatullâhi Wa'Barakâtuh

By the grace of Almighty Allah you shall soon be traveling for performing Hajj. Surely you shall take care of the sacredness of Harmain Shareefain (Makkah Al Mukarama and Madina Al Munawara). In this regard we request you to remove Musical Ring Tones from your mobile (Cellular) phones before departure and during Hajj try to keep your mobile phones on Vibrators/Silent. By this you shall be avoiding any disturbance to your worship as well as to the worships of other pilgrims and furthermore the sacredness of Harmain Shareefain shall not be harmed. We hope that you shall put heed to this request and shall convey this message to other pilgrims as well. May Allah Subhanawatallah accept your Hajj. Ameen

Was’Salâm Alaikum
