Daoud Abudiab

Daoud Abudiab is the person who inspired the name of this Podcast - SameDifferentS - Born in Paelestine, he is a Father, Husband, and Business Executive. He started a mosque in Columbia, Tennessee, that in and of itself is a deep story touched on in this episode.. As we begin,
please read the words of a recent Facebook post from my Muslim friend, Daoud Abudiab - 

"God is not only loving but He is The All Merciful. These divine attributes combined extend His love to those who have not earned it, but are nevertheless deserving. We are deserving because He is our Creator, each and every one of us. His love and mercy encompass all. It is human that you and I struggle to do the same. Struggle, however, implies we strive to do better with the rising of the sun. 
When you and I are comfortable with who we are and accept where everyone else is, by God's will, then I believe it becomes easier to live out our own faith for our own salvation and I trust Him with your salvation. I cannot love you more than He loves you."
