Muslim American Identity?

For Muslim migrants to keep their old Identity is naturally easy, or to become American even is relatively simple. What is most difficult is how to combine the two in integrated manner. MCA is committed  to sort out identity issues and help  Muslims integrate with the collaboration of all who care for it.

A challenge occurs when migrants become American citizens without giving a thought to what this means. This potentially creates a problem when they encounter some “American” practices they reject as immoral  or un-Islamic. Let us designate this situation as Type A. But, second- and third-generation Muslims often become “Americanized” and adopt several practices, including those the first generation migrants considered blatantly un-Islamic; even immoral. Let us designate this as Type B. Often tension is created when Type B immigrants are reminded by their elders of their “wrong-doing” and thus cause stress.
