Analysis of Current Events Western Civilization Ft. Imam Muhammad Al Asi Add Video

Imam Muhammad Al Asi previously led the daily and Jum'ah prayers inside the Masjid. His speeches were inspiring, revolutionary and thought provoking, and eventually irritated and threatened the Middle-East Ambassadors who control the Masjid. Finally, the Imam, his family, and other Muslims faithful to the course of Islam were forced out, into the streets. This khutbah originates from the Manasses Islamic Center. The Imam usually delivers the khutbah from the sidewalk across the street from the Islamic Center, currently under siege.


He is also the author of the first-ever tafseer of the Qur'an - titled : The Ascendant Qur'an- written directly in the English Language. The Qur'an gained popularity with a wide variety of Muslims, justice seeking groups and sinister rulers. However, this has led to translations and interpretations that fit the different agendas of these wayward rulers and often has meant drifting far from the original meaning of the words. Imam Asi attempts to reverse this trend and in my analysis of his struggle, he has deliberately set out to evacuate these covert assailants on Islam's mission who distort or completely alter the message that the Qur'an actually transmit. 01-21-2017


The Institute of Contemporary Islamic Thought (ICIT) is an international intellectual centre of the global Islamic movement.[1] It consists of individual activists, journalists and academics from around the world who share a common commitment to developing the social and political ideology of Islam, and promoting their ideas and analysis as an alternative worldview to that of the western civilization. ICIT was established in 1998 to continue the work initiated by the late Dr. Kalim Siddiqui (1931-1996), who was Director of the Muslim Institute in London. Following his death, Dr Kalim Siddiqui's closest associates advanced the work of ICIT. These include Zafar Bangash of Toronto, Canada, who is now Director of the ICIT, Imam Muhammad al-Asi and Imam Abdul Alim Musa of Washington DC, and Iqbal Siddiqui of London, now the editor of the Crescent International news magazine.

Thanks brother and it is interesting lecture and i have one question hopefully you answer for me,i was very much attracted to the " The Ascendant Quran" tasfeer and it very informative,full of knowledge and educational and since volume 11 is under printing and 10
volumes has covered up chapter sure five and there are some 30 more volumes to go in order to complete all the translation of the Quran my main question is that how many volumes of 'tasfeer ' are under print and how often as i checked that first volume was printed in year 2008 and the volume 11 has gone for printing it is quite a long time down the road to reach up final sura 114 .
i hope that you response is appreciate and i really like your translation and may Allah shower his blessing.
Ameen.
