On Friday, November 5, 2010, the University of Maryland Law Journal of Race, Religion, Gender and Class held a full day symposium at the UM School of Law in Baltimore titled “Confronting Islam: Shari’ah, the Constitution and American Muslims.”

The event attracted about 100 guests including college students and professors — both Muslim and non-Muslim — and featured three panel discussions: Shari’ah: Setting the Record Straight;  Muslims in a Secular State: Islamic Law and Constitutions; and Perceptions of Muslims in America: The face of Islam. The keynote address was delivered by Imam Suhaib Webb from California.

    Salaam alaykum,

    Truer words, rarely spoken aloud in our community. I fear the way ahead may be difficult and challenging and it will take people of courage and conviction, well grounded in the Islamic sciences to see us through and help our communities in the West chart a way productive and ultimately successful way forward, insha’Allah. I pray such leaders emerge and that they find followers worthy of leading. Ameen.
