"Any study beside that of the Quran is a distraction, except the Hadiths and jurisprudence in the religion. Knowledge is what He [Muhammad] narrated to us, and anything other than that is the whispering of the Satan."
"The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge."

In a posting on my website, more than a few months after my wife's passing (the Prologue in the book), I wrote that I owed you, but particularly Lucette’s friends, an explanation as to why, when I told her that a young African working girl was crashing at my apartment in Montréal, all she said was she would like to meet her.
My explanation took on a life of its own and that is how I found myself writing, during the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, a book about love, sex and Islam.
My marrying sex and scriptures is meant to give non-Muslims a better understanding of the latter and convince believers who may be contemplating martyrdom because of what they have been told about sex in the Hereafter not to be in a hurry to get there.
Except where requested, or for the security of the person, actual names (first names only) are used.
In my writings on the Koran, the Prophet and Islam, in the tradition of Thomas Paine, I have tried to explain the seemingly complicated in terms we can all understand in, what is now, with Lucette's passing, a solitary campaign against the willful ignorance that will be our undoing.
