Capital Hill Terror: thinking, talking and action points

By Imam Abdul Malik Mujahid
Whether criminals are Muslim or White, they are hurting humanity and we have a responsibility to condemn and speak out against it.  Avoid generalizations.

By Arshad Gamiet
“Donald Trump has gone, but his toxic legacy remains. The suspicion,  the fear and hatred of Islam has emboldened other leaders from China, India and Europe. But Allah’s religion will never be defeated. Despite their plotting and planning, Islam will survive and spread. That is Allah’s promise.”
