  1. Concerned Muslim says:

    Salam alaykum,

    I have a suggested topic for discussion that might be quite sensitive but one which I believe many of us are starting to consider: I am beginning to wonder whether we have a “white” Muslim problem? This is the proposition to be debated: Many converts to Islam of European background come with an immense amount of secular baggage that makes submission to the dictates of the shari’ah difficult and leads them to find ways to mold the religion to their “cultural” values which are in fact secular values. What makes this even more insidious in many cases is the superiority complex of white society and the tendency towards claiming to have a higher understanding of anything they affiliate with, of planting a flag wherever they step. In many ways, it is inconceivable to image Africans or other non-white peoples displaying the same hubris when converting to Islam.

    Is this a legitimate topic of discussion? When Blacks entered Islam during the 70s, no one had a problem discussing whether they were real orthodox Muslims or not, but somehow the topic of white reverts is not being discussed although we see many of them engaging in systematically dismantling orthodoxy through pressuring traditional Muslims to adopt their liberal values.

    It would be great to hear a reply. Unfortunately, I cannot leave my real name and email.

    It would be good to get a American Muslim lawyer on your show. Because they would clear the air about the NAK controversy. Also Mr. Bradford’s DIY will is probably not legally valid per requirements of state law. I don’t know if this is a con or if he doesn’t realize this…again a Muslim lawyer should be consulted.


  3. Muslima says:

    As Salamu Alaikum,
    Jazak Allahu Khayran for the enlightening discussion on cryptocurrencies. One thing that comes to my mind is that cryptocurrencies might be closer to trading in gold and silver that occurred during the times of the Prophet (s) than the bank issued, interest-bearing, debt based currencies that are in place in the vast majority of the world today. Every time we deal in such currencies, we making transactions that are not pleasing to Allah (although we can hope for His forgiveness, because of legitimate need). Crypto-currencies may provide the halal alternative we need to break away from such a system. Of course, each currency is different, and some currencies may have aspects that would make them haram and or otherwise unsuitable; as Shaykh Bradford says, we need to be careful.
