    Thank you for the article.There used to be music warnings earlier whenever any third party audio/video were put on. Not that we can completely avoid it but its better to tell in advance.

    Also video has inappropiate scene, perhaps this is new standard of muslimmatters, as long as some “good” is derived from anything, its good.

        Unfortunately it appeared on my facebook, and I visited this article/news a week ago, and was shocked to see the video, and since there was no comment, I did not comment so that this would be buried. I only commented after someone else commented.

        I visit site because I have many friends who are in active in it, and I am starting to feel worried.

      notice the difference between your style and Sr Sarah’s style above. Now think about how the response would be different to what is essentially the same message, but given so differently.

      That would be my fault. I apologize. I sort of did it on the run (mobile). Didn’t really come back to it. The reason I posted it was to show that there are organizations out there (non-Muslims) trying to bridge the “West” with the “East’ using common denominators.

      InshaAllah we can benefit and learn from this to provide the true and correct understanding of Islam so that the general population can benefit.
