aqil’s notebook

In addition to being a religious education teacher, I’m also personally fascinated with the philosophy and history of Ismaili (particularly Nizari) Islam. So I’ve created an entire separate blog, entitled “Aqil’s Notebook” (مجاه عاقل است in Persian) where I explore these ideas as well as figure out my own beliefs about the universe. I’ll hopefully be posting something new every Wednesday.
