Should I blog again?

 I recall, when I first started blogging, I did so because that gave me an opportunity to unload much of my thoughts on diverse subjects. It was sort of like a self therapy.  

I could write on topics which I thought were important or current.  I wrote passionately and honestly. The good thing about your own blog is that you can decide what you want to write and how you want to write it. 

There are no editors editing your thoughts or ideas.

For  a while I was lucky to be given an opportunity to write for newspapers and other news portals.It has its advantage because of its reach. The disadvantage is that you may not have the complete freedom, understandably, to write what you wish, how you wish.  In other words, when you write for others, you may be constrained by their policies and worse, their mindset or mental limitations, which can be frustrating. 

I want to write as objectively as possible on topics that I think need to addressed. Or simply to express my thoughts on something at that particular moment in my life.

Now I am wondering......should I go back to blogging my thoughts?

Whats your views?

Yes, please continue writing. It’s certainly by Qadarullah that your blog came to my mind right now.

I’m also a Muslim lawyer from the Philippines who share your views and experience on Islam. But that’s another story.

From time to time, I visit your blog. Just a while ago, I was watching Dr. Hathout’s speech and then remembered about your related article on “priesthood” in Islam; how, intentionally or otherwise, our ulama seem to have also established their own form of priesthood.

Hence, this visit. And what a treat to see that you just posted a new blog entry!

So yes, brother. Continue writing. You may have silent readers from different parts of the world that you might not even know.

P.S. Here’s the link to the video in case you’re interested.

Thank you Sir for the response.

And thank you also for the video link to Dr. Maher Hathout. Incidentally my doctorate thesis is also on extremism and terorrism but the resilience side of it.

God willing, Yes, I will write again.
