As-Salaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah,

The interview went amazingly well. I had not been on the air since 2005 so I was really happy to be there again. Insha’allah, the interview will be uploaded soon.

As-Salamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah to the believers and greetings to the unbelievers,

This is my first blog so it is indeed one of those amazing things that introduces me to science. It’s quite a step for me (keeping in mind I only bought my first CDs perhaps 9 years ago) but we hope that there shall be reward. I would like to use this venue to keep people up to date with my endeavours, updates on book deals, presentations and other information that will be of use.

I remember when I initially became committed to my faith again in 1990 AD and I was swirling in the ocean of Islam, knowing about Salvation, my Lord, My Prophet but not much else. It was through the Providence of Allah that I was shown some upright believers who helped guide me along the way. Since that day up until now, I have always felt that I owed the common believers the same favour that had been shown to me all those years ago. This is a small token, but we certainly hope for some good to come from it.

And with Allah is every success,

Abu Ja`far al-Hanbali
