"This thing hit me like a ton of bricks. It always has. Except that I did not for some reason really pay any serious attention to it. Or connect with it.

If something -- anything -- is from Allah, the maker and master of the world, it has to make sense. At least to the extent our poor powers to comprehend can cope with it.

So, if it is from Allah, chances are it will make sense. Even with all the limitations that surround our life.

Is that why Allah uses the expression Bayyinah and plural Bayyinaat in relation to the things he presents and points to? Meaning Clear Signs and Plain Evidence?

Just ask yourself this: How can it be otherwise?

If it is from Allah, it has got to make sense. How different this is from the way much of the rest of the world understands these things!

That is why the conclusion is inescapable, Islam is from Allah, the maker and master of the world." (Dr. Pasha)

"Islam is getting out of one’s comfort zone and taking a good look at the world around.

It is pushing the envelope of one’s ideas and beliefs and critically examining the foundations in which those beliefs and ideas are rooted.

That is what the Qur’an came to teach people. And that is what Islam is." (Dr. Pasha)

“Here is what I expect everyone would know about Islam: The foundation of Islam is “Thinking,” “Reasoning” and “Asking Questions.”

Now, how many religions teach those things as the foundation of their faith, I do not know. But please don’t tell the Muslims I said any of this.” (Dr. Pasha)
