Mr. Ali Sina,
After reading your articles at the site ( http://free.freespeech.org/rationalthinking/) I have decided to have a discussion. I have a feeling that some of your articles are very close to what I think about Islam. But couldn't find a solid reason or facts to prove my thinkings in fronts of my friends and family. Therefore I am this time approaching you are hope that you will provide me with facts tosupport my arguments and convince my family members and friends.
Looking forward for your response.
Malik Usman.

Dear Usama,

Thank you for the email and your interest in my site. My first suggestion is
that you do not discuss about religion with your family members. The subject
of religion is always contentious and the family ties are too sacred. As the
matter of fact I do not suggest that you discuss religion with your friends
or anyone you know. Keep your relationships with people harmonious and
friendly.

If however, you are very much interested that a certain friend of your learn
about the truth of Islam, and if your intention is not just to hurt his
feelings and make him angry, then you may want to tactfully ask him to
respond to some of my articles or other writings on the net that raise
questions about Islam. Tell him that these points are bothering you and you
want his help to clarify them.

Arguing about religion with family and friends is the worst thing one can
do. Once in a while send them an article and ask them about their opinion.
Do not go actively campaigning against Islam. Our goal must be to foster
unity, not to divide people and cause more contentions and disunity. If you
feel strong against Islam, you may join a religious club in the Internet and
discuss religion there. In this way only those who want will read your
writings and those who donít like reading anything against their beliefs
will not read. Weaning oneself from religion is not easy and one must be
ready for it. There was a time that I would not even read anti Islamic
material. So give people space and time. Concentrate on those who are
willing to discuss and as the rule of thumb leave your family and friends
out of it.

Kind regards


Ali
