Welcome and Peace!
Listen to this young boy talk about The Word of God!
Islam is the true religion of Adam and Eve and their children till the end of this world.
It is simple, logical, clear, practical and comprehensive. The beauty of Islam is infinite, since it comes from the Infinite One, the Creator. The one true God, Allah, stated in the beautiful and unaltered Qur’an:
This day I have perfected for you your religion and completed My favor upon you, and have approved for you Islam as your religion. (5:3)
Also, the same one true God told us that Muhammad is His last and final Prophet, sent to all mankind (Jews, Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists, Agnostics, etc.).
Allah offered His guidance and light to all people and revealed the secrets and keys through which they can achieve tranquility and contentment, as well as spiritual, social, and global peace.
Islam teaches us to be just, wise, sincere, honest, objective, and open-minded in our search for the truth and when dealing with or judging others.
Searching for the truth should be based on reliable sources and authentic facts. And dealing with or judging others should be performed with justice, positive attitude, dialogue, mutual respect, and clear understanding.

An American Muslim Memoir - a revert story
The author, Mark ‘Hamza’ Dougherty, is an American Muslim convert residing in Alabama. He is an Associate Professor of Biosystems Engineering (formerly Agricultural Engineering) at Auburn University. While living with a Turkish roommate during engineering studies in the late 1980’s, he learned first-hand about Islam. Upon departing, his roommate Barbaros gifted him with a Qur’an. Within one year, Mr. Dougherty, a former Catholic Christian, had become a Muslim. Mr. Dougherty has worked as a certified auto mechanic, a surveyor’s helper, an assistant to the deaf, a design engineer, and a technical writer. He has edited and co-authored several educational books published by Cornell University's Cooperative Extension program. His book “An American Muslim Memoir” is independently published and was written 23 years after he accepted Islam.
The intended audience for the series is Christian and Muslim. Part I relates the conversion story of a not-so-unique Baby Boomer who came of age in the 1960’s and 70’s at the end of the divisive Vietnam War. Written initially for the author’s immediate family, Part I provides spiritual insights into two often disparate faith groups. In Part II, the author recounts how he learned to practice Islam over a seven-year period and how a mid-life crisis provided renewed emotional strength for his subsequent pilgrimage. In Part III, the author shares a long letter to his old roommate Barbaros recounting his 1997 once-in-a-lifetime journey to haj in Makkah, Saudi Arabia. What follows the haj is a whirlwind period of readjustment back in the States including marriage, post-graduate education, professional employment, and child-rearing. With life coming quickly the author discovers in Islam a family lesson that in retrospect was life-saving. In Part IV, pre- and post-9/11 America are contrasted; and parallels are offered between the unsuccessful Vietnam War and the current 12-year undeclared war on terror. Drawing from numerous contemporary writers and outspoken social justice advocates such as Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Archbishop Desmond Tutu, and President Jimmy Carter, a way forward is offered for America.
This spiritual memoir is unlike others in that it crosses boundaries between two faith traditions – Christianity and Islam – offering a singular perspective for each into the sincerely-held beliefs of the other. The main message of "An American Muslim Memoir" is simple – whether a believer in God or not, we as brothers and sisters of the human family have no real choice but to accept one another by respecting our differences and celebrating our many more commonalities.
