Dr. Mike Ghouse describes the essence of Islam in the latest book

‘American Muslim Agenda: Muslims
Together Building A Cohesive America’ released
With Islamophobia happening in today’s society, Dr. Mike Ghouse pens “American
Muslim Agenda” (published
by Xlibris
) to offer Muslims and non-Muslims alike an
understanding of the essence of Islam. At its core, the book aims to open
people’s hearts and minds towards each other,
 free them from tensions and
bring joy.
Firstly, Ghouse
defines a Muslim: It is someone who is a conflict mitigator and a goodwill
nurturer, following the formula for peaceful societies practiced by Prophet
Muhammad and guided by the Quran. He describes Islam as pristine and
pluralistic, another beautiful religion like all others, which brings solace to
the individual and teaches one to live in harmony with what surrounds them,
people and the environment.
Similarly, he
presents how none of the Quranic verses advocated violence and only allowed an
act in defense. He believes that the verses were no different from the criminal
justice system of the United States of America. “If you violate other people’s
rights, there is a punishment for it, and if you care about others, there is a
reward for it. God’s laws are no different.”
Ghouse also
expounds on how American Muslims, as a community, have not developed any
concrete plans to extricate themselves out of the chaotic situations, hostility
and incessant Islamophobic rhetoric faced. With the book, he paves the way for
Muslims to own the mistakes they have made, remedy them and become fully
integrated Americans.
“This book will
resonate with every American, and the biggest take away would be hope for
America, and goodwill for Islam and Muslims,” Ghouse says. “They would
appreciate the Muslim effort to be one with all, E Pluribus Unum, and their
attempt to build a cohesive America.”
A review
of “American Muslim Agenda” from Dr. Frank Islam, philanthropist, and
a scholar, Washington:
I am intrigued by the book, particularly the chapter on the Essence of
Islam. The great Talmudic sage Rabbi Hillel in the first century BC said, “What
is hateful to you, do not do to your neighbor. That is the whole Torah; the
rest is the explanation of this—to study it!” Dr. Ghouse responds to Rabbi
Hillel with a corollary on Islam, “God has created us into different races,
religions, sizes, colors and other uniqueness’s, respecting the otherness of
the other and accepting the God-given uniqueness is the whole Quran and the
rest is the explanation of this – to study it.”
