7 Academic Access with Shoaib Malik Episodes Worth Watching

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I have recently went on a binge of Shoaib Malik‘s series “Academic Access” (sometimes converting them into mp3’s and listening to them while driving, working out or doing other tasks). While I have not listened to every episode, I’ve listened to quite a few. The episodes are generally good, but, like with everything else, there are hits and misses and so there were some episodes that I considered to be much better than others. What I’d like to share here are 7 episodes that I found to be worth the listen. Continue Reading

On the New LGBTQ Law

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

In a certain way, this new law to impose *cough* I mean protect LGBTQ from discrimination actually makes sense. You see, LGBTQ is a *deen* people, it is a way of life. It is a religion. And because the US constitution has been interpreted as saying that freedom of religion implies there is no difference between following Christianity and Satanism, so too it follows that there is no difference between following Christianity and Postmodernism (a polytheistic religion under which LGBTQ is just one form.)

How to Respond to the “Muslims are Obsessed with Sex” Argument

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

I’m sure you’ve all encountered this argument before. Recently, the British government made the accusation that the hijab sexualises and objectifies young women (this was made in objection to Islamic schools mandating hijab at the age of nine). This argument seems to be pervasive in Western literature, and many ex-Muslims also make similar claims.

Beliefs That Do Not Make Sense: Salvation in Protestant Christianity

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Why can’t I be saved with neither faith nor good works? Continue Reading
