You truly were the greatest, not just because of your boxing skills, but how you taught us to stand for what we believe in and being confident in times of racism and in times of Islamophobia. May Allah bless you, Muhammad Ali.

Muhammad Ali Was My Father

Taymullah Abdur-Rahman | Posted 06.04.2016 | Black Voices

Ali, we looked to you to find what we didn't know existed; integrity, masculinity, compassion and charm wrapped in a ball of handsomeness. And we're still trying to emulate that today.

The Unwinnable Wars on Drug and Terror

It seems that any time we use the term "war" it becomes a license to be lawless and, shall I say, valueless.  We have declared something as an enemy and become ruthless toward it while demonizing a whole people.

A Nazi Threatens Me Because I'm Muslim

Anyone who is active on social media has received vulgar comments. Some receive threats, and I've received my fair share. In light of Donald Trump's heightened anti-Muslim rhetoric, I've received an increased number of vulgarity and threats.

Things Muhammad Taught Me: Social Justice

We are, as Muslims, expressly forbidden in our religion to oppress others. We are also further forbidden to side with oppressors or aid them in any way. I repeat: all forms of injustice and oppression are forbidden in Islam.

The list of jaw-droppers goes on and on, but the good news is -- other than at places that have special meanings to your church, synagogue or mosque -- it usually doesn't take very long to get over the syndrome, whether in Jerusalem or anyplace else in Israel.

These terrorists try and suppress the humanity and forbearance you demonstrated. Remember when you were stoned bloody and took no revenge? Remember when the pagan Arabs used to dump animal carcasses on your doorstep and you would clean up without saying a word?

Dr. Faheem Younus

To my Muslim family, you know Ramadan starts on June 18 this year. Many in the West believe it's a month when we abstain from food and drink during daytime. That's true. But in reality, Ramadan is about abstaining from all carnal desires, not just food. It's a spiritual flight requiring us to follow certain protocols.

Amygdala Politics: Will ISIS Be 2016's Ebola?

With Matalin interviewing Nader in a surprising love-fest, we air our 200th show. Mary and Ron Reagan ask: a) is Geller a Paul Revere or arsonist hiding behind the 1st Amendment? b) will "ISIS is Here!" become the rallying cry of the Right? Then: Oh God, it's Huckabee!

The Muslim Americans who have served in the U.S. military are an important reminder that Americans are not bound by religion, but by values that extend beyond their ethnic and racial backgrounds.

Quick, Call Voltaire

The worst fanaticism is religious fanaticism. It is based on absolute certainty. When someone is sure that he has God on his side, his hand doesn't waver. That's what we've just witnessed in Paris.

Avenging the Prophet Who Banned Revenges

5 Lessons From Prophet Muhammad to Stop Torture

Qasim Rashid | Posted 02.09.2015 | Religion
Qasim Rashid

It is not a lack of intelligence, but a lack of morality that permitted this barbaric act of torture to occur at all. The CIA, ISIS, and indeed the world at large can learn volumes about compassion, justice, mercy, and morality from Prophet Muhammad, the man who successfully brought peace to a warring world.

What Is True Islam?

Unfortunately, the ignorance to Islam that Megyn Kelly demonstrated interfered with her ability to hold a rational and just interview. Indeed, what is fair and balanced about inviting an anonymous puppet and taking his word as gospel, without any countering voice?

Jews and Muslims Share a Holy Week

Stephen Schwartz | Posted 12.08.2014 | Religion
Stephen Schwartz

The fasting of Yom Kippur and the rejoicing of Eid Al-Adha/Kurban Bayram are two sides of a common legacy. Faced with ongoing violence, the self-examination of Jews on Yom Kippur and the happiness of Muslims at Eid Al-Adha/Kurban Bayram stand in repudiation of bitterness, prejudice, and incitement.

The Key to Defeating ISIS

ISIS is bad ideology and the best cure for bad ideas are better ideas. The obvious question, therefore, is does a superior version of Islam exist today and if so, where is it?

What Is Strength?

Umar Zulqarnain | Posted 09.28.2014 | Religion
Umar Zulqarnain

Strength is to let go, to let be, to simply exist. Strength is to know that we are nothing and that we have no strength. It is to know that strength is in God and is not acquired but provided.

What Is Strength?

Umar Zulqarnain

We try to display ourselves as strong, independent beings, as confident and un-phased by the events around us. In reality, it is often a show, a facade, a cry for attention rather than an element of fortitude.
