The Qur’an: a Readthrough. Juz 1 and Surah 2, verses 30-72

Race and Religion

To clarify before this starts, I’m a humanist and I can only speak from my experience in England, as that is where I’ve lived all my life. Around 7% of the British population are people from Asian countries such as Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, and Bangladesh, but in my school the …
