Abd al-Hakim Murad's BBC Posts

BBC's online presence includes an interesting feature called "Thought for the Day," a break from hard news to offer a contemplative or meditative nibble on some topic that may or may not be related to the events of the day. The posts are necessarily short. You can listen to the authors read their thoughts or you may read the texts. It's up to you. A variety of religious and philosophical traditions make appearances. A regular on this program is Cambridge scholar, who is one of the most thoughtful persons I know, Abd al-Hakim Murad. This is the link that takes you to the list of his ponderings. But fish around, if you have the time, to hear or read other thoughtful posts. It's a good break.
