Love is a great reason...

...to learn about Islam, but other than love for Allah, it's not a good reason to become Muslim. I took receipt today of a first edition of Kipling's book 'Kim'. So when I saw a young couple one with the air of europe the other with the air of the subcontinent I though about the famous axiom 'east is east...'. I'd actually thought about it earlier in the day when I pondered that east (orient) and west (occident) do meet, not only do they meet, they are joined. The european young man raised his right index finger, well like I said, love is a great reason to learn about Islam...
