A Select Bibliography to help you learn about our African brothers and sisters

For Muslims, we are encouraged to know one another, no matter what our ethnic or racial backgrounds. One of the first steps in doing this in the spirit of the true "melting pot" is to understand how the other one feels and sees the world.

Surah Ayah
Something to Ask...
My Rubb,
I beg of you good that lies in this night and good that follows it, and I seek refuge in You from the evil that lies in this night and from the evil of that which follows it. My Rubb! I seek refuge in You from lethargy and the misery of old age. O Allah! I seek Your Protection from the torment of Hell-fire and the punishment of the grave.
