Muslims and the World
(Bringing Islam to the World One Concept at a Time!
Taking the Qur'an to Every Home and Heart that Needs It --

Who will give us quarter, and where will we find refuge, from such a relentless and all-out manhunt?

Some of us decided to organize Listening Groups -- or Discussion Groups -- to listen to portions of Pasha Hour International prerecorded programs.

"Allah is truth.
Not just any kind of truth, but clear and transparent truth.
That is what the Qur'an says.
Allah is Al-haqqul Mubin, says the Qur'an -- clear and manifest truth.
Working for Allah, therefore, is all about truth and integrity.
When those are compromised, ...
“One hears a great deal nowadays about Muslims wanting to work for Allah, which is just great. The more, the merrier.

“Now that you have had your fun and games in America for over four decades, why don’t you now join me in taking the Qur’an to every home and heart that needs it?”
Dr. Pasha Challenges American Muslims!

Islam: A Rational Alternative

“I am not saying Muslims should not be “nice.”
