About reading this blog
When repeating facts about islam, its doctrines, its sources, its followers, etc., I (and I guess not a few other commentators) have been misread. In such cases I have been taken to be defending the fact, whereas I have only been exposing it.
In order to reduce such possible misunderstandings, I have adopted the following presentation standard.
When I quote or paraphrase a muslim belief, I will use an italic font.
allah is merciful
This means that this is a muslim belief, it does not mean I believe it to be true.
Any comments about such beliefs will be in normal font.
