However, despite their achievements they still face a stunning misogynistic patriarchal barrier at home. “Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar will be seated behind a wall, separated from the men in ...

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-gener...
