What does "Masa'il" mean, anyway?

I am a Baha'i (member of the Baha'i Faith). Masa'il is the name of one of the 19 months in the Baha'i Calendar.

Each month is named in Arabic after an attribute of God: Mercy (Rahmat); Knowledge ('Ilm); Beauty (Jamal); and 16 others, including Questions (Masa'il). I always thought it was pretty cool to have a month named Questions. Not usually thought of as an attribute of God...

I took "Masa'il" as my original handle to post in the Freakonomics column because it seemed the most appropriate--I had lots of questions about Roberts' methods!

For those of you interested in religious calendars, click here. If you just want to know "What's a Baha'i?", the official U.S. Baha'i site and official International Baha'i site are good choices.
