When I started this, I thought that I would write a lot about Islam and being Muslim on it.
However, when I think of stuff I want to blog, it's not usually related to those matters and I was wondering why.
I came to the conclusion that because, at the moment, this isn't a very personal blog (I don't blog about family, work e.t.c.), anything Islamic would be related to world events.
At the moment I can't relate to those events. I can't understand why Sunni are killing Shia and vice versa in Iraq, how grown men can think it is at all acceptable to kidnap a woman and excute her just for her profession, how (admittedly very few) British Muslims can hold banners saying they want another 7/7 and just the constant lies told about our religion by people who really haven't got a clue. You can give me the reasons behind these things but I don't understand them.
Most of all I can't relate these perceptions of Islam to my daily practice of the religion. Maybe it's because, Alhamdulilah I have a comfortable life but these things make no sense to me as a Muslim.
I tried to find a better site for the third link, but all I could find on Google were a ton of anti-islamic sites praising her. I rest my case.
