Advocating faith, reason, revelation and progress

My mission is to educate the public on Abrahamic godliness, known in ancient Arabic as Hanīfīyyah. Through sensemaking, I simplify sophisticated Qur’anic narratives and broad prophetic guidance along with foundational principles to show how they persuasively address contemporary social, political and psychological human needs.

"Whoever responds to the people merely based on what has been related in books that differ from their customs, habits, their era, their social/political circumstances and the contextual variables at play, misguides others and is himself misguided. He injures the faith greater than a doctor who treats patients failing to consider their different customs, habits, era, circumstances and contextual variables, merely seeking to reflect what is in the general books of medicine. Such a doctor is an imbecile and such a jurist too is an imbecile; both are the most harmful they could possibly be to the people’s faith or their bodies – may God help us!"

– Abū Bakr b. al-Qayyim, Damascene theologian and legal philosopher, d. 1350
