  • welcome back! may seven years of hardship yield a harvest of knowledge to those who had been thirsty for a relevant fiqh in pax americana.

  • Dear Imam Suhaib Webb,

    Your talk moved me in so many ways. I hope that here in America we as Muslims find the courage to stand up for what is right, not only for ourselves but for all. With Peter King’s hearings and a growing sense of Islamophobia, Muslims must unite to bring a message of peace and tolerance. Alhumdulillah, there is still good left in this Ummah, and inshAllah it will change the world. الأمة فيها خير ..

    Thank you again Imam..

  • Dear Imam Sahaib Webb,

    This video of you giving an impassioned report on your witness of true Muslim goodness among the young people of Egypt in the recent revolution has touched my heart very deeply. Before I die I would like to meet you and hug you. I only read about you today in an LA Times article by Raja Abdulrahim.

    I am so proud of you I can hardly contain my joy. We have more in common than our family name. I am 75, born in Lawton, OK, and am a retired professor (U. of Chicago, U. of Washington, and Pepperdine University) and international authority on East Asian history and religion (BA from Abilene Christian College, MFA, MA and PhD from the University of Chicago.) My wife and I retired in 2004 after after 47 years of university teaching and administration.

    You could be my grandson. Except all the Webbs in my family were short, so maybe we are not related by blood. Nevertheless, I consider you my brother in all things holy. I, too, eased myself out of my Church of Christ upbringing, beginning from around 6 years old. But I had a grounding in languages and morals from my preacher father, R. O. Webb, who with my mother Bonnie were administrators in the Ft. Sill Indian School. Like you I am fluent in languages other than English.

    But enough of myself. If you are interested you can learn more about me on my blog and even on the Facebook page my granddaughter put up for me. But I intend to keep looking at your life and career, and pray that God will continue to bless you.
