UMAT. I belong to no sect. Just a Muslim. I'm sick of people killing in the name of my religion. I'm sick of being called a terrorist. I'm sick of expectations to condemn and apologize for the actions of terrorists. They don’t represent me. I not only condemn but strongly oppose murder, beating of women, racism, war, suppression of rights and freedoms, ill-treatment of minorities, and suppression of democracy. I will not apologize for what I haven't done, I will make a difference.

I received a suggestion about opening an online store as a way to fund raise for awareness in the general public about Islam and also within Muslim communities. I'm in the middle of designing items for sale at this store. Initially it offer inexpensive bumper stickers, magnets, hats and t-shirts that promote our cause. If you have any ideas or suggestions about the slogans or designs, please forward them to : firstname.lastname@example.org
Fiqh Council of North America (FCNA) has officially issued a Fatwa denouncing terrorism and acts of terror....
Its endorsed by more than 120 U.S. Muslim groups, leaders and institutions. (The term "fiqh" refers to Islamic jurisprudence.)
The fatwa, released during a news conference this morning at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C., states in part:"Islam strictly condemns religious extremism and the use of violence against innocent lives. There is no justification in Islam for extremism or terrorism. Targeting civilians' life and property through suicide bombings or any other method of attack is haram - or forbidden - and those who commit these barbaric acts are criminals, not 'martyrs'. . .In the light of the teachings of the Qur'an and Sunnah we clearly and strongly state:
1. All acts of terrorism targeting civilians are haram (forbidden) in Islam.
2. It is haram for a Muslim to cooperate with any individual or group that is involved in any act of terrorism or violence.
3. It is the civic and religious duty of Muslims to cooperate with law enforcement authorities to protect the lives of all civilians.
We issue this fatwa following the guidance of our scripture, the Qur'an, and the teachings of our Prophet Muhammad - peace be upon him.""We urge all people to resolve all conflicts in just and peaceful manners. We pray for the defeat of extremism and terrorism. We pray for the safety and security of our country, the United States, and its people. We pray for the safety and security of all inhabitants of our planet. We pray that interfaith harmony and cooperation prevail both in the United States and all around the globe. "
Prayers for him and his family....
I've been getting quite a few emails since I launched this site...... almost all of them very positive...
Nearly 25,000 civilians have died violently in Iraq since the US-led invasion in March 2003, a report says.
Has CNN been covering this 24 hours? Has there been an investigation to find out what group was behind these terrorist attacks? Where are the Muslim leaders who condemn terrorism?
LONDON - Backing the United States in Iraq has put Britain more at risk from terror attacks, an influential British think tank said Monday.
An interesting article from Free Muslims Coalition
More than 100 alleged revenge attacks — including the killing of a Pakistani immigrant — have been reported in Britain since the bombings. Police increased protection in Muslim communities.
Please send us information about any violation of rights against any group of people, anywhere whether its related to Muslims or not. Please do inform us if there's violation of people's rights by Muslims/Muslim countries.
We will be opening a community pretty soon where people can take part in a live debate, as well as a website where you can sign up with the organization. Depending on the growth rate, we will register the organization as a charitable organization with respective governments as well.
Please refer all your Muslims and non-Muslim friends to the site.
Especially for Muslims: We need all the voice we can get. Please get involved and play your role in making this world a better place. You CAN make a difference by voicing your opinions, every single one of you....!
The biggest goal of this organization in the near future: Recruit as many activists as possible. Organize rallies and marches anywhere we can on September 11, 2006 to protest against this violence. Take it to the streets. Make ourselves heard. Raise as much money as we can to fight terrorism and help individuals affected by it, and use that money to educate people about terrorism and how it hurts. Force our governments to protect the minorities among the Muslim countries, protect women, allow freedom of speech and expression, bring true democracy to our Islamic countries, and make the people count- not the princes and dictators. Bring out the real Islamic values.
I don't care if its 5 people, 100, 10,000 or a million that take it to the street. But we have to. We can make a difference.
We will plan other smaller events along the way.
I am a Muslim.
