****** Dear Umar, Razi Bhai and "my little brother",
With due respects to all, yesterday I had written that Ourbeacon is a breath of fresh air since all participants can express their views freely. Thus, everyone can shape the mood and mode of the forum in good faith.
We have no reason to suspect anyone's sincerity unless there is concrete evidence to the contrary.
Ourbeacon Policy would define "sincerity" as striving for international justice and peace and well-being of the fellow man.
13:17 ..... The real existence on earth is of the person or the system that benefits humanity. ******
I stopped short of posting the above message only because I was enjoying the dialogue between shakur and Umar.
Razi Bhai is a most generous, loving and magnanimous brother of mine in Kuwait. He looks for the slightest opportunities to encourage others. His analytical thinking has shown me the way on more occasions than I can remember.
Umar, in his early 20s, from India is the brightest youngster I have ever known. He steers his wide ark of knowledge with the calm wisdom of an outstanding captain. As pointed out before, Umar's power of expression and prowess of English are incredible. I want to salute his parents and teachers.
shakur ansari of California was born into an Afro-American Christian family as Dana .... around 1970. I call him "my little brother". Allah blessed him with Islam several years ago. shakur is a highly intelligent, knowledgeable and courageous gentleman running a successful business. Honest to the hilt, he speaks fluently in a deep voice like a trained TV anchor.
