9 Questions You Should Ask Yourself Before Converting to Islam

Every Muslim knows several, if not dozens, who chose to convert to Islam as a young adult or even later in life. According to Pew Research, "Two-thirds (67 percent) of all converts to Islam in the U.S. came from Protestant churches, 10 percent came from Catholicism, and just five percent from other religions. Nearly one-in-seven converts to Islam (15 percent) had no religion before their conversion."

Year in Review: Sign noting Muslim volunteerism defaced

Members of a Round Rock mosque wondered if it was the workplace beheading in Oklahoma by a Muslim or terrorist activities of the Islamic State that caused someone to deface a local road sign bearing their group’s name.

Members of the mosque who belong to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community condemn the terrorist activities of ISIS and the workplace beheading of the woman in Moore, Okla., Sept. 25 by a Muslim, said Yasir Mirza, an official with the Muslim group. “We’re all appalled by that,” he said of the violent atrocities.

Forum: Faith leaders can close gap on great racial divide

The year 2014 was a divisive one. And, in my view, religion is both the problem and the solution.

At home, deep racial tensions resurfaced. In Ferguson, Missouri, a white police officer shot dead a black, unarmed teenager. Days later, a similar death occurred in Staten Island.

In the wake of the news, there were numerous demonstrations of civil unrest, and two policemen in Brooklyn were killed while sitting next to one another in their patrol car.

Belief in the Unseen is a Religious and Scientific Principle

Atheists often mock those who believe in the existence of God, saying that such an absurdity is contrary to common sense.  They say that though the existence of God cannot be conclusively disproven, neither can the existence of Santa Claus, the tooth fairy, or unicorns.  Those who are critical of theism often object on principle, presenting their ideas as diametrically opposed to the idea of belief in the unseen.  However, on closer analysis, we find that they themselves, in fundamentals, are actually in agreement with the religious principles to which they object.

An open letter to Geo TV

Dear Geo TV, I did not think I would be writing this letter to you just days after picking up the heavy coffins of over 100 innocent children in Peshawar.

And I am disappointed at your persistent refusal to own and apologise for your irresponsible — and that is putting it lightly — broadcasting.
