It is both a truism and a cliché that children are the future. Where that future will be shaped is in the classroom. Teach Your Children Well looks at the long term implications of... More > reintroducing the teaching of religion in the public school system, and the granting of exceptions to the general curriculum for religious reason In Canada, with the Province of Québec leading the way, a secular public school education is being sacrificed to accommodate a religion which considers schooling where its revealed scriptures are not given precedence as blasphemous. Can two incompatible value systems be accommodated within the public school system and the inevitable clash between reason and unreason avoided? Will the politics of accommodation lead to peaceful co-existence, or simply allow Islam to recruit in a place that was previously off limits?< Less

If you are going to read one book on Islam, you have to read this one! In mostly short, easy-to-read, to-the-point essays, I touch upon everything you need to know about the resurgent would-be... More > dominant religion and what it means for lesser and non-believers. 61:9 It is He Who sent His Messenger forth with the guidance and the religion of truth, to make it triumph over every religion .... 3:85 Whoever seeks a religion other than Islam, it will never be accepted from him, and in the Hereafter he will be one of the losers. Narrated 'Abdullah bin Masud: The Prophet recited Suratan-Najm at Mecca and prostrated while reciting it and those who were with him did the same except an old man who took a handful of small stones or earth and lifted it to his forehead and said, "This is sufficient for me." Later on, I saw him killed as a non-believer. Bukhari 19.173< Less
Getting to Know Allah - Legacy Edition By Bernard Payeur

"111:1-5 Perish the hands of Abu Lahab, and may he perish too; neither his wealth nor what he has earned will avail him anything. He will roast in a flaming fire, and his wife will be a carrier... More > of fire-wood, she shall have a rope of fibre around her neck." The phrase "In the Name of Allah, the Compassionate, the Merciful" launches 112 of the 114 chapters of the Koran. If compassionate is defined as being aware of the suffering of an other and wishing to relieve it, and merciful as being unconditionally kind and forgiving, then these are not the qualities we would associate with the Author of verses about roasting a man over an open fire, with his wife, tethered like an animal, supplying the firewood fueling the flame that is burning her husband. Does it matter that Abu Lahab and his wife did not hide their disdain for the Prophet Muhammad and his new religion? It matters to Allah, and what matters to Allah is what Getting to Know Allah is all about.< Less
From Merchant to Messenger By Bernard Payeur

The Koran is very much the story of one man’s struggle to get his Meccan kin, the Quraysh, and neighbours to abandon their smorgasbord of gods and goddesses and to worship only Allah after... More > being informed by the archangel Gabriel that this is how Allah wanted it! Gabriel also informed the forty-something Muhammad that he had been personally chosen by God to be His last and greatest Messenger to mankind making him, in effect, absolute ruler of humanity, beginning with the Arabs. The verses pertaining to this period comprise what is called the 84 Meccan surahs (out of 114)or chapters of the Koran. The Prophet’s appeals for absolute power were almost always laced with threats of a horrible punishment from His Mentor if they did not do as they were told. These threats would lead to possibly the first linking of Islam with terrorism. 50:45 We know better what they say and you are not a tyrant terrorizing them. So, remind, by the Qur’an, him who fears My Warning.< Less

The Islamic Hereafter is all about pleasure and pain – hedonistic pleasures and agonizing pain. While Muslim children are expected to have read the entire Koran by the age of seven, The... More > Islamic Hereafter is not for children whose parents are not into persuasion through terror. If Allah’s revelations about the appalling indescribable pain and cruelty unbelievers can expect on Judgement Day, and later when He confines them all in His Hell, are not enough to cause them to experience unforgettable bone-chilling nightmares, His Messenger’s ghastly visions of a claustrophobic zombie-like existence underground surely will.< Less

I wanted to know about the world she had left behind. I wanted to hear about the lions, the tigers, the tropical rain forest, the endless summers... She laughed. Her country was not like that at... More > all. It was dirt roads, arid dusty fields, no wildlife to speak of and, as far as the tropical forest was concerned, there was almost none left. She talked about her family. Her father and mother remained in Africa. She hinted at a relationship which seems to have been her reason for coming to Canada; and that was to escape a marriage in the Islamic tradition, which she once described as "god-sanctioned rape." Twelve years ago a young black women from Africa who preferred prostituting herself on the cold streets of Montreal rather than enter into an arranged marriage got me interested in the Koran. She opened my eyes. It is my hope that Women and the Koran will do the same for you. Women and the Koran is mostly an excerpt from Pain Pleasures and Prejudice, a comprehensive review of the Koran.< Less

Shared Prophets brings together in one place all the relevant revelations about the biblical heroes, and the odd villain, of both the Old (Hebrew Bible) and the New Testament, whom Allah invited to... More > strut their stuff on His stage, the Koran. ---- Like most non-Muslims who are familiar with the Christian Bible but not the Koran I assumed it was like the Bible with stories from the past with God taking center-stage, occurring at a specific time and place, containing morality lessons and instruction from God about how to get along and how He should be worshipped. I never expected the Koran to be so different. Not only different in the way it presented its message but how different the message was. Both the Bible and the Koran claim the same authorship – God – nonetheless, the two books are poles apart.< Less
