In a very deliberate fashion, Imam Siraj explains why the American people should not fear Muslims but instead should embrace them. Islam is growing in America at a tremendous rate and certain interest groups are very concerned because of what the Muslim represents. What is it about a Muslim that is considered a threat to those in positions of authority? The answer may surprise you as this lecture answers that very important question. It also exposes the double standard present in the media and their portrayal of Muslims today. The speaker also shares with the audience the many Islamic beliefs and practices that are common to Christians and Jews to illustrate the completeness of Islam’s teachings. A great talk for non-Muslims who may have preconceived notions of what Islam teaches and how Muslims live their daily lives. Other topics discussed: women’s dress in Islam, censorship, racism amongst Muslims, the difference between Sunni and Shi’ites, nepotistic rule, Saddam Hussain and the U.S. foreign policy on Iraq.
