The Challanges Muslims Face in America
Muslims in the U.S. must overcome the following challenges in order to
have a strong voice:
- Muslims need to overcome the disunity in their community. The
reason for disunity is the fact that Muslims from different cultural
backgrounds cannot communicate with each other. In order for them to
communicate, they need to understand and accept each other's cultural
- Muslims need to remember that when any decision is concerned, the
Islamic point of view should be considered before the cultural one.
Islam should have the priority, since it is the message of the Creator
of everything. Islam is the collection of the directions of Allah,
the most important in binding human beings.
- Muslims should tolerate each other as long as no rules of Islam
are violated, no fardh outlawed, no haram acts committed. The free
area (mubah) must be utilized for solely strengthening the ties and
inter-relations of Muslim groups here, in the United States, then
elsewhere in the world.
- Muslims must not forget that this world is transient (fani); the
Everlasting one is only Allah. So, nobody must think that he has the
standard criteria and his views are to be accepted by everyone.
- No Muslim should forget that the worldly life is very short and
the Day of Judgement is imminent. That day everyone will be
questioned, and their accounts will be taken by the Absolute Judge,
Allah. No help, no assistance or intercession will work except with
"I bear witness that there is no deity but Allah, and Muhammad (pbuh)
is His servant and messenger."
