Dear Brother Arif,

I second Sister UmeAimon. Your idea of using the Quranic Litmus Test is simply magnificent. Also, I like your brevity. Indeed brevity is the soul of wit.

If we look at the Mutrifeen anywhere in the “Muslim” world, they sure enjoy all the rituals, i.e. Namaz, Roza, Hajj, and Zakat (giving away 2.5% of their surplus wealth, which is not the Quranic System of Zakat).

Just yesterday I was thinking of asking Brother Dr. Shabbir about you and you popped up on the Forum. What a surprise! It is nice to see you on the Forum again. You may recall it was one of your postings that opened my eyes about these man-made rituals. Referring to my own statement “great minds never indulge in ritual worship” used in my posting about Benjamin Franklin, you asked: “Then, why are you still performing the ritual Namaz?” The same day I said good bye to this ritual and never regretted it.

For your information I am scheduled to volunteer at the National Book Festival tomorrow and Baltimore Book Festival on Sunday.
