Don't Fall Out of the Sky
Present leadership in the Muslim Ummah at
any level, from government ministries down to ordinary trustees of
Masjids and Islamic institutions hardly qualify for the lofty
requirements of leadership in Islam. They lack even the very basic
qualities of leadership such as Taqwa (righteousness), Ilm (knowledge)
and Ikhlas (sincerity), let alone the vast array of other leadership
qualities that make a good Islamic leader.
Co-Citizens of the West (Murad
Wilfried Hofmann - Muslim German Thinker)

about the media, become the media
theories have become perhaps a Muslims' favorite fable. Be it a young
schoolchild, or an elderly member of our community, few have trouble
explaining why the mainstream media hates us so; "It's all because of
the Jews I tell you, there's simply nothing we can do about it."
Women's Rights: Now and Then
In which so-called "Islamic" country, do we see
an exemplary treatment of Muslim women? This surely is not caused by our
religious ideology but rather by our own negligence in understanding out
Based on this ideology non-Arabs have no

Uncivil War Against Islam
Power and influence are
the currency of American society, those who have it and know how to use
it succeed in advancing their causes, and those who don't remain
disenfranchised. Native Americans and African-Americans have had a long
time to learn that lesson. Now it is the turn of Muslims and
Arab-Americans to learn it--the hard way.

Some men demand food instantly from their
wives, when the pot is on the stove and the baby is screaming to be fed;
they do not pick up the child or wait a little while for the food. Let
