"My name is Samuel Shropshire. Iím an American citizen living in Saudi Arabia.

I came here in November 2011, not knowing anything about Islam or the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). Most of what I have heard was extremely negative...

I was invited here, to Saudi Arabia, by Safi Kaskas to work on what is known as the Q Project. Dr. Kaskas wanted to produce a new easy to read American translation of the Quran for the next generation of young Americans.

Since I could not read or speak Arabic, I wasnít doing any translation work. I was simply invited to check the English, to make certain that this new interpretation of the Quran was easily understood.

My work, of course, required that I read the Quran over and over again.

Well, as you can imagine, having no knowledge of Islam, I had hundreds and hundreds of questions...

Think Win-Win for a better world for all...
