  1. Great Video!

    Muslims have understood their own religion perfectly well for generations. We have the original foundational Islamic scriptures and texts; we have the scholarship of traditional and early Muslim scholars to rely on; and we have the perfect example of Prophet Muhammad (sws) to follow in practicing our faith daily. Islam is a religion of peace, charity, kindness, and mercy, and it is far removed from anything that is opposite to that.

    There is no need to listen to outside western revisionist “scholars” or Islamophobic critics telling us how to best interpret and understand our own faith tradition.

    The background music and images are very fitting.
