99 verses

Halal Monk's commentaries on 99 Qur'an verses are published gradually. They all relate to one of the 99 names of Allah. He interprets the texts explicitly as a Christian but he puts these personal interpretations in front of Christians and Muslims alike. To Christians he shows how the verses might spiritually inspire them and to Muslims he asks questions that came to his mind after reading the surahs.
