Excellent Book with Great Stories of American Men,
This review is from: All-American: 45 American Men on Being Muslim (I SPEAK FOR MYSELF) (Paperback)
As one of the 45 contributors, I was happy to share some of my life experiences in this book. It is only a small glimpse into my life as an American Muslim, but contains very defining moments. I also really enjoyed reading all the other essays from the other contributors and was amazed myself at the diversity of the American Muslim Community. Sometimes we get caught up in our own little world and we forget that there are other people out there who are going through similar things, while others are going through a much more difficult time than we are. Even though we may not all agree on ways to practice our religion or different lifestyles we may have, we should all learn to accept each other as Human Beings and treat everyone with respect and dignity. Isn't that what all religions teach in the end? Whether Muslim, Christian, American, Arab, Native born, Immigrant or what have you: "Treat everyone they way you would like to be treated." I highly recommend people read this book and share it with their family, friends and co-workers. You will learn a lot, not just about American Muslims, but American Men in general as well.
