Magicians' Epiphany

Here's a post on team-tagged other|matters. It's a condensed version of an already condensed essay about the Magicians of Pharaoh's court and their stunning conversion and prostration before the "Lord of Moses and Aaron." It is published in the current edition of Seasons Journal of Zaytuna. Thanks for your interest. Happy epiphanies! (Interesting. Maybe there should be a national day in which we devote ourselves to epiphany-seeking.)

Salaam Dear Brother:

I am adding my comment on Other Matters here also:

A really thoughtful and well reasoned article, although I would add the the stories that make up the books of the Old and New Testament and the word of God that is the Qur’an, can be taken as a continuing sacred narrative, as well as the many stories surrounding the life of the Prophet (pbuh). In fact, any tale that inspires a belief in the One God, is also such a narrative.

Ya Haqq!
