American novelist, nonfiction writer, and playwright. Author of JIHADI: A LOVE STORY, a literary thriller available from Orenda Books.

I was born a Muslim, but only realized that in 2003.

An aim of mine in this world is to Win the Pulitzer, inshaAllah. I like books I read twice. Disagree with civility, please.

Rumi
“Be like the sun for grace and mercy. Be like the night to cover others' faults. Be like running water for generosity. Be like death for rage and anger. Be like the Earth for modesty. Appear as you are. Be as you appear.”
Rumi

William Shakespeare
“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”
William Shakespeare, As You Like It

Albert Einstein
“A clever person solves a problem. A wise person avoids it.”
Albert Einstein

Zhuangzi
“Let your heart be at peace.
Watch the turmoil of beings
but contemplate their return.

If you don't realize the source,
you stumble in confusion and sorrow.
When you realize where you come from,
you naturally become tolerant,
disinterested, amused,
kindhearted as a grandmother,
dignified as a king.
Immersed in the wonder of the Tao,
you can deal with whatever life brings you,
And when death comes, you are ready.”
Chuang Tzu

Lewis Carroll
“It’s no use going back to yesterday, because I was a different person then.”
Lewis Carroll
