In this Zaytuna brochure I didn't see any one outside Asians who are already Muslim. Is this institute preparing liberal mullas or conventional.
What about Spanish, Caucasians, African American.
I wish they invite other speakers too like Dr. Shabbir Ahmed and other very good thinkers on Islam in United States..
But being a local resident near UC Berkeley I happen to know that institute runs under Shaikh Hamza Yousuf who is a staunch hadees follower.
Most of his hadees graduate are Friday imams around the N .California mosques. He himself give Friday sermon in Pleasanton city. The only part I like in his sermon is that he tells immigrants to follow rules of law, be honest in dealings or don't cheat on taxes, don't continue bad habbits in ex countries.
The story of future Islam in America.
This post is about an effort to tell Zaytuna school to invite authentic teachers different than Hadees base.
