In this moving address, Imam Zaid Shakir explains the predicament facing the Muslims in contemporary American society. The way out and the way ahead, he argues, is for us to hold our heads high and recognize the dignity and virtue of our community.
He also responds to the charges that Islam is a terrorist religion, and Allah is a merciless and stern God. Ramadan, he demonstrates, refutes both of these claims. During that blessed month, the true nature of a devout religious community is demonstrated, as is the boundless mercy of Allah. A truly motivating and inspiring address.
