Muslims That Shaped America

Islam is not a foreign religion in the United States but rather deeply rooted in the society since its inception. Studies and reports show that Muslims landed on the New world even before Columbus. Muslim slaves first arrived in what is now the United States during the 1520’s. Estimates of the percentage of Muslim slaves as a total of the whole vary from 15-30%. Muslims essentially shared in building the United States. This contribution of Muslims makes them shareholders in all that concerns the United States. This session discusses how we can feel proud of what our Muslim ancestors did for America as faithful citizens and add more to our legacy.  Published on Jan 3, 2016.
