Episode 2 – Journey To Justice
This journey to justice often feels like one of those lifelong struggles. It’s an American tradition, working out our differences in court.
As Muslims in America, as Muslim Americans, we have religious freedom, and we have Constitutional rights – on paper. In practice, it could be very different, as many of us have experienced in our day-to-day lives. Mohamedou Salahi explains that he felt relieved to arrive on U.S. territory in Guantanamo. He perceived the United States as a land of “law and order”. He then experienced torture and other human rights violations at the hands of American authorities. These are the heartbreaking contradictions that we must face as Americans.
In an authentic hadith, a companion of the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) tells us, “We pledged… that we would stand for justice wherever we may be…” Let’s renew our pledge to stand for justice. Let’s continue to change the outcome for Muslims in the United States. Join us on our sacred journey to advance equality and justice for Muslims in America, in our courtrooms and communities.
