Hobbies: Reading and Writing

My passions: Islam and Science

My goal is to start a revolution in scientific thought by adding a spark of artistic style and the eloquence and power of the written word. If I make an impression on the mind of one person, my journey will be worthwhile, and my goal accomplished. May Allah grant me the patience, wisdom, and skill to succeed. Love is an incomplete solution to the problems of humanity, but realisitic and sincere compassion coupled with the wisdom of the Prophets is exactly what the doctor ordered.
