• Ummah: Not in Turmoil but in Struggle for Freedom, Justice and Peace

    Please don’t call what is happening in the Muslim world “turmoil”. This is turmoil that births a better society.  This is a freedom struggle.

  • Domestic violence among Muslims and our responsibility to prevent and intervene

    There have been more than a few cases in the recent past in which Muslims in America have killed people around them. At least two of them were reportedly clinically depressed. A depressed person can hurt himself or others.

  • How the Prophet Muhammad fought domestic violence

    The Prophet fought domestic violence, a scourge common to many civilizations at the time. He did this by affirming the inherent dignity of women as human beings responsible and accountable before God. He also did it by directly addressing a hitherto “private” matter between a husband and wife.

    Domestic violence was not a “women's issue” irrelevant to Muslim men. The Prophet understood that this abusive behavior could be changed, but it first had to be brought out into the open and addressed head on. The personal was definitely political.

Our young friends have had enough of war, displacement, trauma and hunger.  60 million people, worldwide, now seek refuge, many of them fleeing war and violence. Shameful warlords and war profiteers, such as those who commandeered U.S. wars against Iraq and Afghanistan, destabilize defenseless populations.
