Filmmaker and Author Tariq Jalil joins us this episode to talk about his recent book, “Islam Plain and Simple.” Jalil addresses modern day misconceptions facing Islam in the West. His book offers valuable insight into some of Islam’s most controversial topics such as the Prophet’s life, hijab, polygamy, women’s’ rights and terrorism. Jalil stresses that in order to dispel misconceptions about Islam, Muslims must educate themselves first and others second. We must not deny the irony of the situation Muslims face today. Islam started with a simple, yet crucial, command, “Read!” over 1400 years ago. Today, however, due to our lack of education, we are losing to the evil forces that are spreading Islamophobia. Jalil talks about ways to counter the attack. Listen to Jalil dispel misconception this episode.
