Al Hamdu Lillahi Rabbul ‘Alamin

Good Morning, I have been going through your webpage site and I have found many useful information. I just wanted to thank you and praise you on all the hard work that went into your website. It has been very useful mentally, spirituality, and physically.

Please e-mail me on any new ideas or activities that may be going on in Islam. I would also like to have all of your newsletters to be sent to my working address

A few weeks ago I stumbled across the translation of the Quran by Dr. Rashad Khalifa in the U of Calgary library. Some scribbling inside the cover “don’t read this authors book; this writer is a fraud; etc.” caught and held my attention immediately. I am very happy to see God’s miracle in my own hand and wish to show it to everyone I know. I failed in my search to find a

copy in bookstores and am disappointed that the truth is not readily available around the people I know. I ended up here in my search on the internet and am happy that there is a community of submitters. Please send me the latest catalogue and include me on your mailing list for the newsletter.

To whom it may concern,

You don’t know how happy I was to come across your article. I really can’t believe it. I thought that I was the only one that felt like that. I am referring to your anti-hadith article.

I have been recently having long discussions with fellow Muslims about

the same subject. They all think that I am crazy. My problem is, the more hadith that I read the more confused I get, and the more contradictions I find. I only thing that I can believe 100% is the Quran.

There is another issue that I have really been debating. Well my problem is that I am the only one around that feels this way so they kind of gang up against me. Back to the issue. I wasn’t raised as a Hanafi or Shafii, or etc. I just can’t accept that there are 4 correct ways that we must follow. You must pick one and stay with it. To me this idea is absurd. Well I really don’t have time now to tell you my view point on the matter, but if you could kindly send me information on your point of view on the matter I would greatly appreciate it.

I have printed a good deal of information from this web site and will read it
