In America, it is said that African Americans are the fastest growing group of people to convert to traditonal Islam. Sometimes this is difficult to accept as truth. I have not yet converted, however I do claim Islam to be my faith and I believe in its principles.
WHY DO WE REJECT THIS BEAUTIFUL RELIGION?
I am deeply troubled by the thought that world conflict has rooted prejudice in Americans, particularly Black Americans. Lately I can't go anywhere without hearing jokes aimed at Muslims and Arabs. It hurts even more when these jokes come from the mouths of my own people.
IF YOU TAKE PRIDE IN YOUR ANCESTRY, KNOW THAT ISLAM IS ONE OF THE MAJOR RELIGIONS IN AFRICA, PARTICULARY NORTH AFRICA.
There is no reason for us to be as biased and prejudiced as we are becoming. It is time to stand up, and stand together.
