Aiman converted/reverted to Islam in 2002. He is a student of Islamic Studies at Mishkah University and has additional background in comparative religion. With a BA in writing and an MEd in TESOL, he teaches university first year writing and adult ESL classes. Prior to entering Islam, he gained knowledge and experience as a Christian (with periods of immersion among Baptist, United Brethren, Lutheran, Catholic, and Christian Reform communities) while he is also familiar with liberalism, conservatism, naturalism, neo-hippism, street life, etc. These various life stages all work to inform and broaden Aiman's attentiveness in dialogue with the full range of humanity—via this website or otherwise.

While this website is focused on discussion about Islam for mutual understanding, Now Islam also offers a free helpful course packet in PDF form and other free resources for those who wish to put the religion into practice.
