Lack of knowledge engenders fear, thus people fear Islam.

Since 911 many things have changed in our knowledge of Islam. There are now people who have studied and explain what Islam teaches and, many Muslims have started to read the Quran in their own language…huh? They have haven’t been? No. Like Catholics of many generations ago (Latin-only liturgies and Biblical readings), Muslims only read/memorize the Quran in archaic Arabic (there is a reason, but not going into it here). Since then, translations have been made available in local languages and when Muslims read what it actually says, it can be…surprising, to say the least, and many are making unexpected decisions.

This is the archive of a recent live-stream event called “Answering Jihad: A Better Way Forward” with Nabeel Qureshi (almost 2 hours.) This picture you see is his latest book of the same name, but this video opens with 30 minutes of his story. It’s gripping. He tells about his Muslim upbringing, how he responded to a friend’s questions and what he learned. At least listen to his first 30 minutes.
