    Ma sha Allah, its great to see MM promote real respect and unity, with wisdom and good manners. We all know of the differences, but we still unite in Islamic brotherhood.

    To the staff at MM: please know that your efforts are greatly appreciated, and do not let the criticism of the hot-headed get to you. You are setting great examples for the rest of us.

    I would like to sincerely thank both MM and Imam Zaid Shakir for this video. Imam Zaid is a truly charismatic speaker AND an excellent writer. May Allah [swt] reward Imam Zaid for his brotherly words.

    MM: You guys have truly emerged as one of the authoritative voices of the mainstream body of Muslims in America. It is only with such a methodology–in tune with the very specific realities of the situation of the Muslims in the West–that Ahl at-Tawheed can bring about great benefit to all…not through isolationism and partisanship. May Allah [swt] reward you all.

      Imam Zaid Shakir was visiting Dallas back in March for the launch and fundraiser of a new school. This clip was filmed at the actual event after his speech.
