The following is a partial list of my Islamic writings.
In evaluating any of these works, Muslims should keep in mind that whatever they accept or reject should be in light of the Qur'an and the Sunnah. Also, Islam always assumes that people will use their reason and conscience in their pursuit of knowledge and understanding. If you find any error (information, reference, editorial, format or other) in any of these works, please do not hesitate to contact me. Also, it is only Islamic and professional that before jumping to any conclusion, if appropriate, seek clarification from the author on any relevant point or aspect.
