The ease of communication in our global village reminds me of a verse of the Holy Quran that predicted these phenomena. It is amazing that a revelation in the seventh century Arabia could so accurately describe the details of the 21st century. See commentary of Sura Takwir: Chapter # 81. The specific verse that I have in mind is:
“And when people are brought together as if they are a close family!” (Al Quran 81:8)
The Pope has a verified account in Twitter. He has 35,500 followers and he is not following anyone. He has made 5 tweets so far during the last year, starting in August. I just sent him the following tweet:
Dear Pope, We have a specific cordial invitation for you to Islam. Please visit homepage of: http://islamforwest.org Regards!
I hope he responds to it, God willing. To follow our conversation, if any, or to learn, who do I invite next, please follow me in Twitter: ziahshah1
