Mukarrami Shabbir Ahmed Sahib,
Thanks for your reply. I was aware of your views, with which I agree. I had hoped that you might wish to approach Dr A Q Khan and gently point out that he was placing excessive trust in dubious historical records.
I have previously corresponded with Dr Khan but I did not feel quite up to the task of confronting him on something he appears to believe in so passionately, his eminent scientific background notwithstanding. Is it something to do with getting old or did he always believe this story, I wonder!
I still think it would be best if you could contact him; otherwise, I might give him the link to your website where you have dealt with the controversial topic of the moon being sliced up.
Thank you for all you have done for making Islam accessible for all, Muslims and non-Muslims.
