Islam in America

I have long maintained that the real Islam is being preserved and nurtured today in the USA.  In small social circles, academic forums, individual and collective discourse; uncovering relevance to environmental conservation, gender equality and much more. Young and old, Muslims and other denominations are having healthy, constructive exchanges on the beauty of Islam and the Qur’an.  Here is one example that is absolutely brilliant!

I pray that Muslims around the world find the wisdom to explore the meaning, values, depth of the Holy book in such a manner.

    Dear Ms. Chakaki,
    Thanks for an inspirational ted x speaker and presentation.
    As a non Muslim Arab, i have learned to aprreciate the teachings of the holy Quran and what positive attributes it has to offer in our day to day lives. Pray that others will look at the positive of this progressive religion, and not at the negative aspects that are being utlilized/mis-informed; If I may.. the first word in the Holy book is “Read” meaning to learn, research, find out why, accuire knwoldge, whats going on in the universe, in earth, in space… obtain information about all and everything around us and its peoples, and surely not what Islam is being portrayed as a religion of killing, destroying, conducting jihad etc… .
    Again thanks and God bless to all.
