Scriptural Reasoning (SR) is a tool for inter-faith dialogue whereby people of different faiths come together to read and reflect on their scriptures. Unlike some forms of inter-faith engagement, it is not about seeking agreement but rather exploring the texts and their possible interpretations across faith boundaries, and learning to ‘disagree better’. The result is often a deeper understanding of others and ones own scriptures, as well as the development of strong bonds across faith communities. SR is now practised globally, including in places affected by religion-related tensions and conflict.
A sports piece about a Muslim woman who does things. This is a surprise to some people.
According to a United Nations panel, more than one million Uighurs and other Muslims are held in what rights groups and activists call mass detention centres in the remote western region - a charge denied by Beijing. Over one million Muslims are in concentration camps to brainwash them of their culture and religion.

Oud is a resinous heartwood from the aquilaria species, an evergreen in the Thymelaeaceae family native to South East Asia. The heartwood is harvested and used for medicinal and perfumery purposes, many of a traditional or religious nature. The resinous heartwood only occurs in certain trees as a result of a fungal infection due to wounding. Only the aquilaria trees with this infection actually have the aloeswood. Other common English names for oud are aloeswood, calambac, agarwood, gaharu, and eagleswood.
For all your oud needs. I completely dig the oud oil.

There are at least 15 Muslim candidates running for political positions in Minnesota this election season. And while there are no official statistics, many observers believe that is significantly more than in any previous election.
The irony here is that Muslims are becoming increasingly engaged in politics because of Islamophobia. The more the Islamophobia industry ramps up the rhetoric, the more Muslims become involved.
