Insha’Allah from now on I’ll try to present to you weekly (every Jum’ah) the latest interesting stuff found on other good Blogs run by Muslim brethren. Most will probably link to blogs from my Blogroll, since I visit these almost daily.
First off all I want to link you to 2 great joint efforts by Muslims around the world: MuslimMatters.org & Ijtema.net. Sometimes they express or feature views contradicting to what I’ve been taught by our elders, but most of the time they come up with great stuff.
