Speech at George Mason

Thursday night’s speech at George Mason University went quite well considering that beltway traffic and directions from someone who was highly enthusiastic in sending me 10 miles in the wrong direction led me to being an hour late! But Allah is the best of planners, as everyone watched Napoleon’s conversion story first. Afterwards I spoke and it went quite well. A very enlightening Q&A session went on afterwards which primarily centered around a group of very eager Christian brethren who asked what seemed to be preplanned questions designed to put me in very awkward positions. To see what happened, check back here for a clip and Find Islam Media for the full-length DVD.

  1. Asalamu alikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu

    All praise is due to Allah,

    I thank Allah (swt) for making me one of the Muslims, and for guiding me throughout. I ask Allah to send his blessings upon our prophet Muhammed (pbuh) and the other messengers, and the righteous companions (Amiin)

    Dear Brother

    I watched your video on a sisters blog, and mashallah how insightful it was. It was an eye opener and an Iman booster, and we all occasionally need that. Walhamudlilah for that, may Allah give us all a chance to redeem ourselves, and others to find him.(Amiin)

    Although your video was to inform non-Muslims about Islam, you have also managed to inform us Muslims about the beauty of Islam.

    I’m so happy that you have were able to portray the prophet Muhammed (pbuh) in such a praiseworthy way, in all my life as a Muslim, I don’t think I have done him such justice, but wallah I love him soooooooo much too…I love the verse Allah says:

    And verily, for you (O Muhammad ) will be an endless reward. And verily, you (O Muhammad ) are on an exalted standard of character.
    (verse 3-4 Surah Qalam (Nun).

    There is this ayah in the Quran that is recited traditionally in the Khutbah:

    “Allah and his angels send blessings on the Prophet. O you who believe! Send your blessings
    on him, and salute him with all respects.” (The Holy Quran 33:56)

    This then reminds me the Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) status in front of Allah, and his elevated position amongst mankind. Subahnallah, and Masallah

    Too round it up, Jazakallah for all your efforts, and May Allah accept it, bestow you with Jannat-ul-firdaus, protect you, and keep you on the straight road (Amiin)

    And All Praise is due to Allah, the King of the Kings. Lord of the Heaven and the Earth.

    Asalamu alikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu.
