In Atlanta..a whole generation of young Muslims are very proud of their culture and their beliefs....African-American Muslims add their own spice to the mix:
It is Ju'Mah and Muslims all over the world head to congregational prayer. At my masjid, are all types of Muslimahs from all over the world.
It is a joyful day...a day of family and community, and of course, worship.
As we watch the protests after Ju'Mah in Egypt, a verse in the Holy Qu'ran comes to mind.....
Oppression is worse than slaughter.
Fight oppression wherever you find it.
I dedicate this to those struggling for freedom in Egypt against oppression, but I remind those in America, that freedom from oppression in Egypt may not look like freedom here, when it is won.
