This chapter scrutinises the virtual world as a space where people coming from different backgrounds gather to share, socialise, and partake in discussions about the pertinent issues of their time, thereby attaining clarity about what is at stake for themselves and their societies. The attention here is on Muslim blogs that are aimed at transcending the ideological differences within the Muslim community, the bloggers' strategies in combating Islamophobia, and their promotion of ethical conduct online. The chapter emphasises discussions aimed at bridging ties between people of varying persuasions, in order that they eventually appreciate the universalist and inclusivist proclivities in Islam.

Keywords:   virtual spaces, Muslim blogs, Muslim blogosphere, diary-style blog, topic-driven blogs, filter blogging, Islam, social media
