Muslims in America: What Everyone Needs to Know
How to resist the evil temptations of the life of America when one has full right of freedom, opportunity, privacy and resources?
Our family is in great agony since our college going daughter, age 19, asked our permission to marry her classmate, a non-Muslim youth. We are Muslim migrants, but our two sons and one daughter are all born and brought up in the USA. We are at loss to decide. Please help.
Our eldest son, a teen of 18, has fallen in bad company of his high-schoolmates, who are addicted to drugs, shoplifting, and things like that, which we have little knowledge. We took all possible steps to make him understand without any success. We have one girl, 5 years younger. We are worried for her. Please show us a way out of this crisis.
Such are the questions Muslims families in the USA are facing. Most of these families, though settled for decades, are bewildered, confused and at loss to understand the course of action they should follow. The crux of their issue is how to Islamize, at least moralize on ethical lines, the practical living problems of their families and youths in this land without losing their Muslim identity. This brief volume is an attempt to solve this problem in question-answer format.
