The Face of Islam in America...

...is Ingrid Mattson, according to USA Today, which is all right. I suppose if I had to vote for someone to be our face, it would be either Ingrid, Sheikh Hamza or Imam Zaid. Perhaps I'm bias towards muslims born in North America, but if we're not the majority of NA muslims now, we will be very soon.

She talks of nurturing a genuine American Islam, rooted in the classical faith, which dates back before the theological, political and legal schisms fractured the Ummah, the Muslim world, centuries ago.

Also, on a personal note, a friend of mine is her assistant, lucky duck! *waves to Amera*
