Please Study Islam Says Atif Fareed and Other Muslim Representatives to Donald Trump

Atif Fareed, the president of the American Muslim Community Center, agrees with other Muslim leaders that republican presidential candidate Donald Trump needs to study Islam. This was after Trump made a controversial statement saying that all Muslims should be banned from entering the United States. Muslim leaders not just from the US, but even those from other countries denounced this statement saying that only someone ignorant of the teachings of Islam can utter such foolishness.

American Muslims accuse Trump of being misinformed to thinking that every single Muslim wanting to enter America does so with ill intent. Fareed says that this line of thinking is due to the many misconceptions about Islam and Muslims. The terror group Islamic State keeps on claiming that Islam requires Muslims to slaughter and take. Muslim leaders refute this claim saying that Muhammad tells Muslims to respect other faith. In fact, the Quran explicitly states that Muslims should be loyal to the country where they live in. And since Muslim Americans live in the United Sates, their loyalty lies with the US. Other lies about Islam being spread by terrorists are as follows:

  • Killing and rape of non-believers is allowed.
  • Taking from non-Muslims is allowed.
  • Women must follow men.
  • Women should remain at home to serve their husbands.
  • Women should not pursue education.
  • Women should not reject men.

Atif Fareed also says that it is abundantly clear that the terrorist’s version of Islam is twisted to justify their actions and to take away the rights of women. Muslims and non-Muslims alike should know only true Islam. Fareed further explains that American Muslim community centers have even taken initiative to promote gender equality. Mosques and Muslim centers are now advocates are now leading the way to clearing the misconception that women are mere possessions of men.

Muslim Americans have been at the receiving end of prejudice and hate crimes every time a major terror attack is committed in non-Muslim countries. Fareed wants everyone to know that terrorists do not represent Islam. Muslims are with the rest of the world in standing against terrorism and other needless and pointless acts of violence.

Fareed also stresses that it is the responsibility of government leaders as well as those aspiring to be government leaders to know more about Islam so they can make better and informed decisions when it comes to relevant issues. Fareed asks Trump to set an example and study Islam. All mosques and Muslim community centers are open to non-Muslims. Our Muslim brothers will be happy to teach you about our faith.

Invite to Mosque Given to Donald Trump by Atif Fareed and Other Muslim Representatives

GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has never been known to favor Muslim Americans. In fact, the controversial businessman is known for wanting immigrants, particularly Mexicans, out of the country. Trump, however, seems to have finally overstepped his boundaries when he called for banning all Muslims from entering the United States. He made this statement in the wake of the San Bernardino terror attacks in which a Muslim couple went on a shooting spree that cause the deaths of 14 people and the injury of 22 others.

Donald Trump’s horrifying words about Muslims

Donald Trump’s words on Thursday detailing the revolting measures he’s open to imposing on Muslim-Americans literally sent a shudder down my spine. A non-Muslim friend of mine tweeted: “This literally made me cry.” Read more…


Atif Fareed, president of the American Muslim Community Center, has led calls for Trump to come into a mosque so he can be enlightened as to what Islam really is. The invite is supported by various Muslim community representatives such as Taha Tawil, the leader of one of the oldest mosques in the US. Muslim leaders agree that Trump clearly does not know enough about Islam and Muslims and the best way to open his eyes to the truth is to educate him.

Atif Fareed explains that if Trump agrees to have a long discussion with them, they will make him realize that:

  • Muslims are his neighbors and not his enemies – Muslim Americans, just like any other American, wants what is best for their country. They pay their taxes, work hard for a living, and do what they can for their community. They are not terrorists out to spill blood in American soil.
  • Terrorists do not represent Muslims – the couple responsible for the San Bernardino massacre may be Muslims, but what they did was far from the teachings of Islam. They have been radicalized and brainwashed into believing a skewed version of Islam, the one Islamic State has been spreading.
  • Muslim communities around the world denounce terrorism – it has been evident in most if not all terror attacks since 9/11 that the Islamic community does not condone acts of terror. Muslim leaders denounced the Paris terror attacks and they do so again with the San Bernardino terror attack.
  • Islam is a religion of love and peace – the Islam being taught by Islamic State, Al Qaeda, and other terror groups is not true Islam. The real Islam is the one being taught in mosques and community centers. True Islam commands respect for others especially their faith.

Muslim American leaders are hoping that government leaders take the time to know more about Islam. Answering the invite to come to a sit down inside a mosque is a great first step.
