Muslims have always been part of American societies. Many of the 75 million people who lived in the Americas before Columbus believed in One God. Muslim explorers and merchants reached the Americas long before Columbus (See my book “Deeper Roots” at www. hakimquick.com); over between 15-30% of the African slaves brought to the Americas were Muslims! Today there are Millions of Muslims in the Americas working, studying and living like anyone else. So the killing of Micheal Brown in Ferguson, Missouri should be a great concern to Muslims as well as African Americans. Justice is for all, safety and respect are for all!!!” Here is a picture taken not in Cairo or Lahore or Jakarta but on Madison Avenue in New York City. Allahu Akbar!!!
