The author owes immeasurable gratitude to his daughter Dr. Hanan Elsaie, DDS, for the continuous encouragement and the interminable patience for sharing her knowledge about God and life sciences.
Years ago on a Christmas day, my granddaughter Dannah asked me a question: how can God be baby Jesus? Then she started laughing. This was the intuition of a 5 years old girl. Since then, she has been asking me a lot of questions about God and religions.
May God bless my daughter, her husband Bilal, Telecommunication Engineer, M.Sc. in Telecommunication from SMU and my granddaughters: Dannah, Daliah, Deyalah and Denah who will be InShaa Allah the harbinger of Islam in the new age.
