About

This is the weblog of the Minaret of Freedom Institute for the discussion of Islam and liberty.

The Minaret of Freedom Institute was founded in 1993 with a dual mission for educating both Muslims and non-Muslims in the importance of liberty. For non-Muslims our mission is:

  • to counter distortions and misconceptions about Islamic beliefs and practice
  • to demonstrate the Islamic origins of modern values like the rule of law and sciences like market economics
  • to advance the status of Muslim peoples whether they live in the West or the East

    PEACE POETRY

    Religions are based on scripture, which is mostly poetry. So it only makes sense that religious conflict must be resolved through poetry, and not through politics, negotiation, or war. I propose that all religious conflicts be redefined poetically, so that they can be resolved without bloodshed, winners, or losers. So let’s sharpen our words, not our swords; send missives, not missiles; and apply our minds to metaphor, simile, rhyme, meter, and prosody, but not pomposity, animosity, ferocity, atrocity, or monstrosity.

    Best regards,
    Hugh Mann
