Thank you, Dr. Sahib. This was just my analysis--not saying that I am right. Like yourself, I am also constantly keeping my mind wide open. I also liked Joe's idea which I am willing to think about and adapt to, isha Allah. If I do, that will be a different approach than what I have understood of "Salamun alaikum" so far. I am not sure if you have seen my post regarding Joe's ideas. If you have, I would love to have your take on it.
