Why this Website ?

If you truly share with us some of the common concerns for Muslims in America and want to understand key challenges they face, you will enjoy this website. There are several reasons why you must read and write for this website:

Some unique issues the website has chosen to focus on are:

A. Focus on critical inquiry and contemporary reading of Islam. That seeks application of Islam to to the issues of modern life in search for their solutions and that negates blind, fixed, and static understanding in favor of dynamic interpretation of Islam. Worship and spiritual side has a definite place of importance, but the website would deal mainly with the worldly dealings and human transactions known as “Muamlats.”

B. Emphasis on community Service: The importance of serving with compassion and understanding for humanity at large, as expected of Muslims according to the Quran, but also as an effective response to counter Islamophobia that is gaining popular ground in America. Our free clinic offered by MCA in Pittsburgh, is a model example for servicing America by Muslim physicians in combination with American volunteers from the local community who worked shoulder to shoulder in close collaboration.

C. Living in America has its dues. As we begin integrating into the fabric of American society, it becomes imminent that Muslims tackle the issues of new identity that aspires to combine American ways with Islamic values that is the focus of one site. The second site: Loving America, the only one of its kind in the country, is most unique. It invites us to explore new paths for the improvement of America in areas which are problematic; Muslims have a better potential to suggest new solutions because of their different background and unique experiences they bring with them

Liberal policy: Despite professing some definite viewpoints outlined above as our focus, we submit humbly to the supremacy of knowledge and science, advanced by individuals or groups – be it from within Islam or outside of Islam, supporting our ideas or opposing it. We welcome dialogue, invite comments and articles from you; the only stipulation is we request a certain degree of civility and quality writing. This liberal policy of our website is result of our belief that our thinking is naturally and inevitably imprisoned to our background. If we want to approximate truth or objectivity, we have to liberate it from a narrow cage and pay attention to thoughts that could be different from our own. Only then do we expect to find solutions and march forward as a dynamic society in the betterment of Muslims or humanity at large.
