I Am Muslim

Hi All,

Start the day with a very late wake up..i arrived at my lab at about 10.15..huhu(tak punctual langsung kan)anyway....

Would love to tell u all that curently im reading this book "I Am Muslim" by Dina Zaman.
Dont worry..its not a book by an extremist or freethinker.its a real life journey by this lady of finding her way to know Islam in every aspect of life.Here is her blog discussing and sharing interesting topics about her perspectives of life and religion.

Read this..some people who commented on this book..
"Dina Zaman's articles about being a Muslim in Malaysia today capture the multifaceted aspects of difference and alterity in normative religious life better than many academic studies on the subject." Quote from Dr. Farish A. Noor, Political Scientist and Historian of Political Islam, Zentrum Moderner Orient, Berlin"Her writings have attempted to demystify Islam and shown the religion for what it is - a religion for all times that somehow over the past few years has been made complicated and in the process completely misunderstood." Quote from Dr. Adeeba Kamarulzaman, President of the Malaysian AIDS Council and Chairman of the Malaysian AIDS Foundation"

well..i suggest you can try to read this and try to look in a different way.I will tell u more once i read more pages(of kos la kan)
