'Minds are not changed merely through acquiring data or information. Rather, it is solely through the slow and steady building of personal relationships that one discovers the fundamental truth that all people everywhere have the same dreams and aspirations, that all people struggle with the same fears and anxieties.' ~ from the book No god,but god from Reza Aslan. #inspirationalquotes #quoteoftheday #qotd #reflecting #bringpeopletogether #mindset #mindsetquotes #nogodbutgod #rezaaslan #motivationalquote #meetingpeople #openeyes #spiritual #connectingpeople #holyplace #tbt #borobodur #peoplesperson
📚 Featuring my #currentreads for September that’s progressing well thus far! My #buddyread discussions with @asmakhadraoui has been enriching for ‘I Am Malala’ and now I’m moving on to Part 3! ✍🏼 The #bigbookbuddyread discussions for ‘The Book Thief’ has been fun and great too 💭 so many thoughts on this amazing story that I cannot wait to share when I post a full review on it, after we’re done with our discussions on the book! 🤓📖 On another note, it has been an exhausting week back in school for a final term! 👩🏻‍🏫 I’ve been having discussions with my students in class which are truly enriching albeit challenging at times! 🗣 I’m looking forward to the weekend to continue with Reza Aslan’s book and start on Cherian George’s collection of essays. I’ve heard and read so much about it! 🇸🇬 (How has your week been? Do share your thoughts and/or reading progress so far! 🤓📚) #currentlyreading #bookstack #bookpile #bookish #bookspines #readwhatyouown #iammalala #thebookthief #nogodbutgod #books #bookstagram #readinglife #bookworm #singaporereads #goodreads #igreads #sgreads #whatareyoureadingsg #bookcommunity #bookcollector #bibliophile #reading #fiction #nonfiction #memoir #pagesofelly
sept.13. 2018 All Praise is due to God!!!! My Yearly reflection says life is too short to complain or regret. So much death and despair surrounds us. A beautiful young lady by the name of @kyrzayda_ fought hard for her life battling stomach cancer every single day since Nov 2017. I’ve followed her for years and I’ll never forget the day she announced. It all happened so fast. She allowed us all to watch her ups and downs and I thought of her every single day. I thought of her struggle every single DAY and I’m in awe of the gracious spirit she carried while seemingly being attacked for. No. Damn. Reason. My Faith reminds me that this reality is a fading one. I’ve gone through many of my own struggles this past year- NOTHING in comparison, but she taught me more than I realized. * I don’t want a single thing. Not one. single. thing! I am so thankful for my life and all I want is to love and continue to love and love some more. I am a LOVER and I vow not to allow ANYone or any circumstance take me away from that truth. I want to grow and continue to grow and grow some more. I hope my loved ones have felt/feel my sincere love and appreciation for them. That’s all I want, to laugh and SING (lol) and enjoy the people I love. (Cue Stevie Wonder) By chance, I saw this video AFTER I wrote this days ago! I’m proud, because I got it! I got the message through your fight WITHOUT you having to spell it out! * Kyrzayda, you laughed and loved through one of life’s worse challenges... just want to be like you! #BirthdayElevationOverTurnup #EvenGrassGrows #AnsweredPrayers #StillVirgoNationTho #AlexaPlayEverythingisLove #ImStillaGTho #NogodButGOD #HappyBirthdayToMe #TheFrshHtl

Jami 🌹, . [This story is about Shaykh Awhad al-din Balyani (d.1287), a Persian Sufi master of Shiraz and his student] One of the students of the Shaykh was in retreat on a mountain. A snake came near him and he tried to grab hold of it. The snake bit him and his limbs began to swell. The Shaykh came to know about this and sent for his student. . He then said to him, 'Why did you grab hold of the snake, so that it bit you?' . 'Oh master,' replied the student, 'you yourself said that there is nothing but God. On seeing the snake, I saw only God. Plucking up courage, I grabbed hold of it!' . The Shaykh replied, 'When God manifests himself to you under the aspect of terrifying power, run away! Don't approach Him, otherwise the same thing will happen to you again!' . Then he sat him down and said to him, 'Hold back from acting so boldly until you know Him perfectly.' . After that he recited some invocations and blew on him. The swelling went down and the student was healed. .

Wealthy, rich in cotext , easy to read, , historical and cultural introduction of Islam in a great readable form especially for Western audience. How Islam came to be practiced as it's today. The real Joy is aslan's prose. This book can be a starting point to those who want to discover more about Islam. For every hot topic, he mentioned nearly all what renowned scholars and faqihs said. Aslan believe that Islam is still in it's period of Reformation. . . . . . . #nogodbutgod #islam #islamicliterature #islamicbooks #rezaaslan #books #bookstagram #boolsofig #bookshelf #library #mycollection #reads #bookreviews
Grateful to @muzamilhasan for recommending this one. This book really changed a lot of my perspectives regarding religious debates with detailed background of almost every religion. The most captivating sect being the sufism and ceaselessly unrelenting love for God. A masterpiece surely worth your read. Undoubtedly ultimate knowledge lies with God himself but it’s imperative to educate ourselves too. #rezaaslan #nogodbutgod #religion #knowledge

It was a very random pick to kill my time, but this book served me well. The best thing about this book is its neutrality! Unlike, books by Lezlay Hazelton, Greg or Khalid Hussaini, Reza remained crisp, unbiased and extremely focused. There are a lot of things that I would like to question. But I wouldn't undermine his efforts and audacity to challenge the twisted beliefs we live in! How the world portrays Muslim and how can we collectively make a difference. I was quitting this book after 4 pages, but what kept me driven are these lines, 'Religion is concerned not with genuine history, but with sacred history, which does not course through time like a river. Rather, sacred history is like a hallowed tree whose roots dig deep into primordial time and whose branches weave in and out of genuine history with little concern for the boundaries of space and time. Indeed, it is precisely at those moments when sacred and genuine history collide that religions are born.' I believe the same goes with the countless sects we have today! No matter how good or bad history may sound, there is no way you can skip the benefit of doubts that we play on. However, I extremely disliked his ignorance over intangibility of the spiritual world, faith and the revelation process of Quran. Not everything can be touched or seen and that's where 'Tawheed' comes in. I can strongly vouch for the spiritual connection we have with Allah... we can't wait to have some phonelines running in between. Allah is nearer to our throat and we all can feel it. *Hands Down* Anyways, summing up - this book will give you a variety of taste. Some of the facts are equivalent to chewing rock hard stones, sautéed in Green and Red Chillies combined 😜😜😜. This book will give you tremors and head shaking jerks but don't worry - aap Dozakh mein nahi jaingay ☺️☺️☺️. Parh kar raffa daffa karein aur ya kuch dil or deemagh kholein. Agar aap Phool Waley Bappa ko deikh kar TV nahi tortey to yeah book tou bohat halki hai 😅😅 I m now moving to some light, heartwarming book - will share which one soon! Happy Reading❤️ #rezaaslan #nogodbutgod #bookstagram #books #readingtime #madihaahmeds #bookreview
Got this one from @libertybooks Black Friday sale last year. . . . Its a pretty comprehensive book about the history of Islam, how and where it originated from. It paints a picture of how the region of Arabia was before the advent of Islam (because thats where Prophet Muhammad SAW was born so his prophethood impacted Makkah first), what changes that religion brought to it and ultimately, the rest of the world. Islam has truly liberated people especially women and that is something you’d understand if you know how the world functioned before Islam. Although I’m only halfway through this book but it explains everything in lucid detail from the beginning. It can be read by non-Muslims too so that they can have a clearcut idea of how Islam emerged, prospered and what its really about.

Günaydın, tünaydın, hayırlı Cumalar ❤️🍒☕️📚 Reza Aslan’ın No god but God kitabını okuyorum. Çok güzel bir kitap, çok şeyler öğrendim, şu anda Sufilerin bölümündeyim. Leyla ve mecnun’u anlatarak başlıyor Sufi bölümüne. ❤️😍❤️ I am reading Reza Aslan’s No god but God. He is one of my favorite authors, very knowledgeable, a great academic and he is very readable. I learned so much from him, I already thinking of rereading the book, so I can absorb it even better. I am on the chapter on Sufism and he starts it by retelling the tale of Leyla and Majnun....so good... #booklover #bibliophile #rezaaslan #nogodbutGod #islam #flaylaystyle #flatlayfriday #flatlayoftheday #sunumönemlidir #hayırlıcumalar #9vaga_shabbysoft9 #9vaga_food9 #tv_foodlovers #tv_retro #tv_lifestyle #tv_neatly #thehub_food #pocket_home #severekcekiyoruz #ig_ard_dream #bizbiseydiyorduk #vizorturk_dream #turkishfood #turkishfollowers #beautifulcuisines #food4thought
I came across this book yesterday at liberty books and didn’t take me more than minute to buy 2 of this writers best seller. This book explains Islam very comprehensibly and an interesting way. Must read for all those who are interested in religious history. #rezaaslan #nogodbutgod @libertybooks

💭 What is on your immediate TBR pile? I plan to wrap these three books by coming Wed. 🙈 Reading updates: Finished "I am Thunder" - 4 star, review coming up SOON. Meanwhile halfway through #TheCruelPrince by Holly Black, nothing extraordinary. The author is holding back A LOT, probably saving stuff for the sequels. 😕 On a positive note, the world building is great.
How are you and your children doing with memorising remembrances of Allah and prayers in Arabic? 🌈 Alhamdulillah, I have a experienced a breakthrough in memorising remembrances of Allah from the Fortress of a Muslim, by personalising melody in both Arabic and English. I feel strongly that it is best to avoid rhyme when making du’a to Allah. But, this year I realised this limitation does not need to hinder me from utilising rhythm and melody to aid memorisation. 🌈 In the two audio links in my latest blog post, you can access the melodies I have used to memorise a remembrance of Allah and a prayer for peace and blessing upon Muhammad. I am thinking of releasing other short remembrances I have succeeded in memorising as well insha’Allah. What do you think? Might they be of any benefit to you? 🌈 Blog post address: https://rhymerlymer.wordpress.com/2018/04/11/worship-allah-alone/ 🌈 🌈 🌈 #muslimfamily #muslimfamilyrhymes #learningallthetime #nogodbutgod #nonehastherighttobeworshippedexceptallah #fortressofamuslim #melodiclearning #rememberallah #muslimconvert #muslimmummy #creativemuslimwomen #memorisation #memorization #islamforchildren #islamforkids #worshipallahalone #onegod #believeingod #muhammadpbuh #peaceandblessings #memorablelearning #prayerandpraise #muslimhomeschool #ramadanrhymes #islamicrhymes #muslimnursery #muslimchildhood #islamicnurseryrhymes #faithingod #worshiponlygod
"This religion is science," I was staring at the open window when I finished this book and think: I still am know nothing. The first few chapters brought me to my knees hoping I knew Islam better. Opening my mouth and express my opinion was easy back then. Post-No God but God phase, I expect this moron inside me will keep her mouth shuts unless she knows something (which definitely still limited). I met young Rasullullah and His prophetic journey. Once again I feel His love for Khadijah was so overflowing that we need to stressed that point more instead of poligamy. I met Ali (OHHHH MY GOD ALI!) and his martyr sons, Hasan and Husayn. Met Aisha and her scandal and her hatred to Ali as well as her bravery. And met all four Caliphs properly this time. This book introduced me to the 12 Imams and I gained more knowlegde about Shi'ism or Syiah. Oh I *really* need to read more! I wish I read the book sooner when I met the young Ayatollah Khomeini (btw Ayatollah itu bukan namanya tapi sebutannya wkwkwk, gue kira namanya Ayatollah Khomeini, ketauan bloonnya, dulu waktu kuliah manggilnya Ayatollah, Ayatollah). I met Rumi and Attar and Sufism properly through the last few chapter. As International Relations graduates, not reading the book while I was still in uni is now listed as one of My Uni Life Greatest Regrets.

NO GOD BUT GOD: THE ORIGINS, EVOLUTION, AND FUTURE OF ISLAM by Reza Aslan (nonfiction) - - Review: Many years ago, I heard Reza Aslan speak, and I was impressed, so I asked my friend to borrow this book. Then, before I had a chance to read it, I saw Aslan in a few contexts where he was challenged by different interviewers, and he came off as defensive, bratty, and borderline anti-semitic. So I became unimpressed and shelved the book. Recently, the friend who lent it to me asked for it back, so obviously I decided I finally had to read it. This book offers an intelligent, well-researched historical re-enactment of Islam’s conception and subsequent evolution. The rest is a religious scholar picking and choosing which bits mean what and why in order to buttress the moderate version of Islam in which he believes. And because Aslan makes a strong, informed case, this is probably exactly what immoderate Islamists need to hear to help reform the religion. But it’s also why I think organized religion is stupid, so... - - Rating: 3.5/5 - - #bookreview #thecurmudgeonreviews #nogodbutgod #islam #rezaaslan #islamicreformation #books #reading #history #arabs #muslims #sunni #shia #reformation #atheism #thecurmudgeon #curmudgeon
After this mornings Quran class I went to say prayers and ended up praying zuhar next to a Christian lady from an interfaith organization today😌❣️. She was part of a group of leaders from interfaith organizations who were taking a workshop at our mosque so they're able to counter islamophobia and dispel some of the myths people believe about Islam and Muslims 🙌🏻🙌🏻. As part of that they had been praying Salah alongside us to get a feel of it ❤️ #musliminamerica #raisinglittlemuslims #interfaithdialogue #saynotoislamophobia #nogodbutallah #nogodbutgod
Thank you my dearest love @suyindesu for this wonderful book and the catch-up we had over dinner. 😍😘🤗 #rezaaslan #nogodbutgod #booktoread
As always, Reza's writing is incredibly articulate. He explores complex and philosophical notions in an accessible way turning all his books into instant page-turners - this is no exception. As with all his books, I instantly disagree with at least 50% of what he writes just because the premise is very secular and hence any anthropological justification for a movement that takes God out of the equation can never be satisfactory for someone who believes it was divinely inspired. The history of Godliness is absolutely fascinating though, and I highly recommend the book despite feeling that his pantheistic approach ultimately came across as somewhat preachy. . . . . #rezaaslan #God #history #religion #faith #spirituality #muslim #islam #christianity #Judaism #zealot #nogodbutgod #bookoftheweek

Bukhari narrated that a spell was cast on the prophet in Medina and he went around dazed. Yet, on the other hand, we are informed in the Quran that those who say that the prophet was bewitched are the wicked ones. This raises a question: Which saying should a believer follow?
