Blog Updates

Posted in Blog at 1:42 pm by Haider

I thought I should write a mini-post to explain my absence, and to update you on what’s been happening with me and the blog.

I’ve been busy working on my Understanding Islam project. What started off as an article evolved to a series of articles, then to a book and eventually into a series of books! That’s not what I’ve written, but my current estimate of what I would need to cover this topic in depth and to the level of detail it deserves. I will hopefully post snippets from the book here.

I recently enable comments in the About Me page. One of my readers left me a comment about the parallels between my experience and his, and I thought that others might be interested in sharing their own experiences as well, or to comment about my own experiences.

Also, before I disappeared, I expressed my intention to write more on politics. And now that elections in Kuwait are over, many Kuwaitis feel relieved that they will put voting and politics behind them. But the ballot box isn’t the end of politics! I still intend to post some political posts I’ve been meaning to write, which will hopefully serve as a useful contribution to life in Kuwait, or wherever politics affects life :)

That’s all for now, and I’ll hopefully manage to write a steady flow of blog posts while I work on Understanding Islam.

    Salam S.Haider

    Although I’m not a big fan of politics, I’m looking forward to reading your political posts. From your previous posts, I can tell that we’re going to read something interesting and different to what we see in other blogs and newspapers.

    Good luck
