Making such a claim is easy but the burden of proof is on the one who makes the claim. Imam Siraj’s approach to this topic may be surprising to most, but if properly understood this lecture can serve as a profound wake-up call for Muslims. One of the most intelligent and motivating lectures by this well-known imam. His message is both forthright and thought-provoking. Not only does he identify the issue that is at the root of America’s social, moral and spiritual problems but he takes you to task with your claim and challenges you to support your words with your actions. How can Islam be a solution for the world if it’s not a solution for you?
