World Peace, Here We Come!

I guess it would be appropriate to start this off as I do any other entry:

Bismillahir Rahmaanir Raheem:
In the name of God, the Most Compassionate, the Most Merciful.

Assalamualaykum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,

May peace, mercy and God's blessings be upon you all!

Subhan'Allah...Glory be to God...This is officially my first blog I entitled myself "Quest for the Divine" to stir interest and a spiritual mobilization to, and a yearning for, the Divine. All seekers are welcome.

The blog was actually my cousin's idea; Thanks, Mas'ood. Now I have a place to post interesting articles and ideas that I find floating around the net, a place to generate discussions, pass ideas around, free our minds from misconceptions and frustration, and a sphere in which we can reflect upon our own existence, long for the Divine, prepare for our eternal abode and effect world peace....insha'Allah (God willing)! may be wondering how a blog can be the catalyst for world peace? I agree that the above may sound a bit too optimistic at this point, but hey...we all have to start somewhere...and let's start this endeavor off with a beautiful prophetic tradition: Every action is according to its intention so with that I say welcome to my blog and let's blog on!

With peace and salutations,
