Nearly 60% of Muslims born in America who choose to practice Islam are African Americans. Yet their understanding of using Islam in the struggle to overcome institutional racism and its many symptoms are rarely discussed. This book explains how oppressed communities can handle and overcome oppression by seriously examining the practice of true Islam. The author analyzes the difference between what is incorrectly perceived as Islam and the way of life called Al Islam while also detailing how different prophets implemented Quranic teachings when standing against injustice. Information is then used to examine real world situations of oppression that occur in today's climate with a particular emphasis on the disadvantaged and impoverished of American society from t only a socioecomic standpoint, but a psychological and spiritual vantage as well. Does Islam obligate its adherents to confront racial supremacy? Why have some Muslim African Americans abandoned the fight for social justice? These topics and more are addressed here.
