I'm new to the forum. I've been reading this forum for a month now, and I really like the open-minded discussions.
A little bit about my past:
Currently in my early twenties; I was born into a sunni family. I eventually realized that how long your beard is doesn't really matter to God. This led to the rejection of all non-quranic ahadith. Eventually after reading Shabbir Ahmed's translation of the holy Qur'an, I came across this website and read your guys' translation too.
My current psyche:
I am a Muslim, and I try to do "good works" in my life, but I'm not sure if I am fully a moumin all the way yet... I still have doughts... kindda like when Abraham asks God:"My Lord, show me how you resurrect the dead." He said: "Do you not already believe" He said: "I do, but it is so my heart can be relieved." (2: 260)
I want to learn the truth about what miracles are (Jesus' birth & his miracles, Moses' staff that transformed into a setpant), and what exactly the definition of God is. I want to be able to one day say that I have full and unwavering belief in the Qur'an. Also, I want to learn Aribic soon so that I can understand the actual Qur'an (I can already read it, so with a bit more effort, god willing, I can get it done soon).
Anyways, thats me... I hope to bring good perspectives on different topics.
