A Special Tribute to Taha Jabir Al-Alwani

  • Zainab Alwani


A man of his time and a pioneer of Islamic and Qurʾānic thought, the American Muslim scholar Dr. Taha Jabir Al-Alwani lived his life serving humanity. He dreamt of a peaceful world where people lived together as one, undivided by the vile forces of conflict, greed, hate, bigotry, ignorance, and selfishness. Before departing this world on March 4, 2016, he wrote the piece “I Am Muslim.” It is essentially a mission statement for Muslims around the world — a message to uphold the true, untainted values of Islam.
