This is the Friday lecture given by Shaykh Yaser Birjas at the Islamic Center of Ann Arbor in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Please listen to it, and share it with others. He will be back at the Ann Arbor Mosque on Sunday December 12th, 2010.
The lecture was the introduction to the Seminar that he taught at the University of Michigan-Dearborn, arranged by the Qabeelah Ittehad, known as “The Prophet’s Smile.”
Note: This lecture is in English, just to mention this that traditionally an Islamic speech/lecture starts in Arabic in a particular format. So please wait a minute until the actual lecture starts in English 🙂

Islamophobia is rising at a very alarming rate in the West and in particular the United States. Niqab bans and Minaret bans in Europe aside, and ignore recent ‘Draw Muhammad Day‘ campaign, there are news and events that do not make it to the global scale or even national level. That, however, does not mean that it can be ignored.
Allow me to provide you with these links. Dates might not be the exact day of incident as I got it from the earliest mentioning online site. Sit tight, hold your hearts for the time has come to keep your naive minds aside:-
Dan Finelli Ad: (on May 5th 2010) Mr Dan Finelli is a Florida Republican, new to the field of Politics. He is running for the 8th District seat and he ran 3 ‘bold’ actually racist and Islamophobe campaign ads. Showing brown person as a terrorist and a white man as a peaceful person! Mr. Finelli showed his ignorance by refusing to acknowledge that the suicide plane attack on an IRS facility in Texas, the shooting of Pentagon guards and the Christian militia plot to kill police officers (arrested in Michigan) were by “Whites.” DON”T STOP here! There is more below!!!
