Liberal Islam by Zeeshan Hasan
"Luke, you're going to find that many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view."
So what exactly is 'Muslim liberalism'? Well, religion is very personal, and everyone has a different answer. I spent a few years thinking about this sort of thing while studying for my Master of Theological Studies degree at Harvard Divinity School. I finished the degree in 1996; my subsequent essays are on this site.
These articles were originally written for various newspapers and magazines, so I haven't added footnotes. A rough bibliography can be found in my reading lists on the history of Middle-Eastern religions and liberal Islam.
I also once wrote a story about running the Boston Marathon back in 1998.
These days I mainly write about global warming and the dangers of catastrophic climate change.
