Click here for previous session   UNDERSTANDING AND APPROACHING GOD We are all bound to the throne of the Supreme Being by a flexible chain that restrains without enslaving us. The most wonderful aspect of the universal scheme of things is the action of free beings under divine guidance. —Joseph de Maistre, Considerations on France   While monotheistic faiths share a fundamental belief in one God, their understanding of His attributes differs greatly. Many of these differences, like individual strands of a spider web, may appear separate and divergent when viewed too closely.   However, these individual threads knit together a larger design, the full significance of which is…

I became Muslim because of Jesus (PBUH)

I was born with an unshakable inquisitiveness that caused me to question everything, but there was one thing I never questioned, and that was the existence and power of God. My mother sometimes reminds me that as a young child my response to her requests for me to clean…
