New Islamic Blog - Must follow!

Salaamu alaykum all,

It's been a long while, but some of you may remember from my suggested Shiachat Wikipedia Project which did not take off due to a lack of participation.

I've decided to do something more within my reach inshaAllah - so I've started a blog addressing more philosophical and mystical topics. I feel that it is essential for Muslims to be pushing the Divine mission into cyberspace.

My aim in starting this blog is 3:

1. To create a forum for spirituality. The Islamosphere is seriously lacking in blogs that promote spiritual material that will help us grow in our journey towards Allah
2. To bring back a traditional Islamic worldview. Because we live in the modern world, we do not realize the extent to which we assimilate values that are antithetical to Tawheed. I wish to share what I've learned along this philosophical journey.
3. To refute atheism. Currently there are hundreds of atheist blogs attacking God and religion - we have barely given a response, let alone a serious one. I view this as a wajib kifaa'i which we are currently failing to fulfill.

If this sounds interesting to you - see my first post Intentions to learn more. I'd also really appreciate any likes on my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/themuslimtheist/ . 
You can also follow me on twitter for updates: https://twitter.com/TheMuslimTheist

Setting up this blog was A LOT of work (there's still more to be done, but I wanted to get the ball rolling.) I'd really appreciate any comments or shares!

JazakAllah Khayr

Lol I don't even know what deconstructivist architecture is.

I am referring to deconstructivism as a philosophical school, which basically says that we don't take our values from a text, we put our values in because texts are fundamentally unable to profer any meaning.

So for example, there is no absolute truth about what the Quran "actually" says, there is only my or your interpretation - which we read into the Quran, instead of vice versa. In fact, the actually text of the Quran is meaningless (auoothibillah).
