In a documentary produced by the Bridges Foundation, a brief background about Islam is explained and the proper definition, historical context, and current interpretation of jihad in Islam are expounded upon by Muslim scholars and leaders including Imam Suhaib Webb, Fadel Soliman, and Shaykh Abdullah Hakim Quick. They are also joined by academics and scholars from various universities such as Dr. Robert Pape, Dr. Gunnar Westberg, and Dr. Samuel Pierce who share current research and information about terrorism and it’s lack of connection to Islam.

As the world media continues to demonize the world of Islam, Muslims are suffering all around the planet! The Ebola virus which could be contained if the world focussed its wealth, doctors and attention on the stricken area, is striking the heart of one of the historic Muslim-dominated areas of West Africa (The Futa Jallon) (Guinea, Sierra Leone, etc.). The world needs to take this outbreak serious and Muslims should be at the forefront! Its not a useless, foresaken land. Here is the Grand Masjid of Conakry, Guinea, said one of the largest in the world. Oh Allah, we beseech You to cure the victims of Ebola, protect the innocent and give the Muslims who have died in this plague the highest part of Paradise!!!”

“Don’t leave me again after Ramadan; Don’t be Abdu Ramadan (The Slave of Ramadan), be Abdullah (The Slave of Allah) and come all year round!!! Shawaal is not the end but the door to the rest of the year. Don’t stop making Dua, giving Sadaqah, fasting and calling to the good and forbidding evil. Surely Allah is Aware of all that you do!!!”
