    Today we discussed the severe dispute between the Meccan and Medinan over Muhammad’s successor on the day of ’s death at Saqifat Bani Sa’ida. Why did Abu Bakr—and not —become the first (successor)? What do Sunnis/Shiites say?

    So we are putting up decorations. I am responsible for tearing the tape and handing it to Wifey. After a few minutes, Wifey laughs really hard. Me: why are you laughing, honey? She: You are so slow. Both cracking up! I began tweeting, and she finished both jobs.

    As PhD holders, we always argue to win. That’s part of what our training requires and entails. But sometimes we win a debate & lose a friend; win an argument & end a relationship. I don’t want this to be my case. Help me, God.
