This is a 'personal', 'non-commercial' web-site for educational purposes only. I, Joseph Islam, the author, accept no responsibility for third party reliance on any views, expressed or implied in any of my work or commentary which may appear anywhere on this web-site, or on any other web-site with or without my knowledge. My purpose, God willing, is simply to pass on 'some' of my work to the wider public with a view to facilitate in the main, a better understanding of the Quran's message and to empower readers to conduct their own analysis and verification.

In particular, this site remains primarily a cue for fellow 'believers' not to accept blindly the religion and interpretations of our forefathers but to subject our 'inherited' beliefs to critical scrutiny and intellectual rigour.

It is within the grasp of most of us to utilise our 'critical thinking', a gift that is given to us by the one God, the Almighty.
