Although I majored in Religion is College, I still feel that I lack general information about many religions, most particularly Islam. I think in a way the whole "anti-terrorism" attitude of the United States has really discouraged people from teaching it, and even more, from wanting to learn about what is really a very beautiful religion. An old friend of mine (albeit one I havent spoken to in many years) has recently put me into contact with an organization who provides non-Muslims with their own copy of the Quran, and I wanted to pass it along for any of you who may be interested -

I know I will never be Muslim, but it still can't hurt to learn more about it, and be able to better understand our fellow humans on this Earth. In the future I may post about some of the facts or information I learn.

So far I have learned that the abbreviation (pbuh) following any name means "Peace be upon him." I never knew!

Peace be upon you, and have a blessed day.

  1. You are so right about the importance of knowing different religions and not just accepting common assumptions about them. Nice post.
