The answers on Hawramani.com are based on the research of Ikram Hawramani in the Quran, hadith, scholarly works and respected fatwa sources. You can
view Ikram Hawramani's credentials
on the about page. Please note that we do not issue fatwas, we only compile the opinions
of respected scholars (even when a fatwa is not explicitly cited) to make their opinions accessible to English-speaking Muslims. If an answer does not
cite fatwas, please feel free to leave a comment asking for a fatwa citation and we will update the answer as soon as possible to include fatwas.
Salaam, brother. I hope you're doing well. I was wondering. Why do people in the Western seem to come up with theories so easily? It's like, as an Asian person, I'm kinda envious of them. Are we just different in way of thinking and approach in life, also in character?
Alaikumassalam wa rahmatullah,
I cannot really say, but it it is a fact that Asians (for example the Japanese) show much less interest in open-ended and non-practical topics like philosophy. Maybe reading science fiction, classical literature and philosophical works will help you acquire the same mental patterns.
And God knows best.
