The tragic events that took place a little over a decade ago, on the 11th of September 2001 will never be forgotten and have brought the religion of Islam to the forefront of the stage. Who could do such a thing? And why? Sentiments of confusion, outrage, and hate from all over the globe have been directed at anyone associated to this “religion of hate” that “hates our freedom.” And the Muslim’s dare not add fuel to the already growing fire, indeed to be Muslim was to be an enemy to freedom and prosperity. I still remember the reaction my grandmother gave me when I thought to wear the traditional koffeyeh or headscarf that men occasionally wear “what do you think your doing? Don’t you know they will take you away if your caught with that on? That’s what they do in times like these” “where not in Yemen muy” would be the dispassionate reply. However, while most men would seek to blend in to the society as to not cause great attention, women wouldn’t sacrifice their practices to quell public frustration. Any guy could get a clean shave and change their name from Ali to Olee G, from Sami to Sam, or my favorite Muhammad to Moe Cash. Muslim Women were the real “flag bearers” of Islam. Walking talking Symbols of what they believed in and no amount of discrimination would compromise it whether a joke or jab at their unfashionable clothing or outright slander and accusations of terrorism. I think what has become obvious to me over the years is the fact that women seem to care more for Islam than men. While a man could easily dismiss his obligations whether to the community (charity) to his…
years following the attack of the September 11th, 2001 brought the harsh stereotyping to the Muslim community. People across the nation make the automatic assumption that all Muslims are terrorists just because of the over generalized event that was committed by those of Islamic faith.

It is wrong to treat…

today. The recent world events related to terrorism and the conflicting viewpoints about what is true Islam are at the heart of the debate. The misinformation and negative perception of Muslims is global, but even more so in America. It is important to have an educated understanding about Islam and Muslims before forming an opinion about its true meaning. I interviewed a Muslim from my community named Camara Ahmed Jamal Fakir. He is a member of the Islamic Association of Greater Detroit, or IAGD…

perceptions about the Muslim world, due to the politics of the Muslim majority countries and the media representation of said countries. All to often the US media focuses on Huntington’s clash of civilizations, an argument that the world is involved in a war between religions, and all Islamic followers are opponents to the secular west. This is evident in their sole publication of stories relating to political Islam and the terrorist activities that often arise from this political Islam. In Karima Bennoune’s…
