I wish I could be this eloquent.

Recently, I've come across too many of my Muslim brothers and sisters who are believing what they hear in the media. Instead of laying back in shock at the unfair attacks, do something about it; change the discourse. It's in your power.

Learn from one of the leading shaikhs some truths on how YOU can be a contributing member of your society. Please avoid the lure of ghettoization. Don't feel as if you are not accepted by the larger society. We are all part of the community we live in, and have our rights and responsibilities to fulfill. Be involved. Do something today. Meet your neighbours, don't hide your Islam and increase yourself in ilm.

SubanAllah... I have listened to a couple of his lectures and for some reason he doesn't really "speak" to me. I really want to like him and I want to feel what he is saying but something about how his presentation style rubs me the wrong way. I can understand that he doesn't particular care for the applause but he also needs to realize that's how people show appreciation....  As I was watching the discussion at Oxford with Shaykh Hamza, I was sincerely troubled by Dr. Ramadan's reaction toward the audience.... Maybe some could help me understand his perspective???  Smiley
