  • Great article and effort by imam. I would like to see more of this kind of activity. Unfortunately, there are muslims out there justifying these terrorist attacks. We need work on all aspects not only terrorism. Let them know and spread the knowledge. No one should be forced to Islam! SubhanAllah, I see few muslims in this world having the courage and intellect to condemn terrorists and hypocrites.
