Commentary: Black Muslims and Black Issues

“It saddens me when I hear a Black Muslim give lectures on ‘Islamic issues’ that are in fact South Asian and Arab Muslim issues. For example, a lecture on marriage in Islam where parental approval, cultural differences, and forced marriage are spoken about as if they are universal Islamic issues when they in fact have nothing to do with Islam and nothing to do with the Black community that imam came from, for example.”
