Following from my studies regarding Islamic Law, what surprises me is how rational a lot of the discussion is regarding culture and religion. But also how irrational people get when the assume they’re dealing with something that is not a mirror image of christianity, or any other religion. Islam as practiced is not one all encompassing vision of what religion should be, nor is it one all encompassing vision of how one should lead one’s life, and I think it’s a manifestation of how fixed and unyielding some in the West’s thinking can be on the subject that demonstrates the biases and prejudices against Islam.
The feeling that hits you hard in the stomach when you step out of the exam, it's a mixture of relief and pure unending panic. Wasn't question 5 more about X or Y than T and P. Did I actually write what I thought I wrote? These questions are bound to float across your mind as you step out of the exam hall into the sun/rain/frost/sleet/wind (Is it the summer really? Feels like the bleak unending winter)
As you can probably guess, the massive fall-off in blogposts (more than usual) here, is an indication of me just not having time. And it's true, I've not been blogging as much. And this is due to my upcoming exams. So yeah… back to work.
