However, this hero famed across mainstream America would not last, all it would take was a man finding himself. Introducing Muhammed Ali, another boxer. However, just a boxer was not simple enough. This man who used to be called Cassius Clay, now embodied the radical change that was beginning to creep it’s way into American society. This Ali rejected what he called his “slave name” and now accepted the religion of Islam, a slap to the face of those Christian Americans who rallied behind him when he was in Rome and when he defeated Sonny Liston.
In the days after September 11, 2001, American leaders rushed to portray Islam as a peaceful religion that had been "hijacked" by a fanatical band of terrorists. One hopes that these assurances were merely tactical—that nobody was meant to believe them and that they were meant to assure the Muslim world that the inevitable American reprisals were not directed at their religion as a whole. If the world Muslim community perceived America as attacking Islam in general then the duty of every Muslim to fight for his religion—the duty of jihad—would have been invoked on a broad scale. The war against terrorism, instead of simmering with occasional flare-ups, like the Cold War, would have boiled over into a global conflagration, with the Muslim countries of the world—1.2 billion strong—mobilizing against America and the West. Muslim apologists also rushed forward to assure the public that Islam was a peaceful religion.
The prophet had sent an army out before he died which had not gone far. After the death of the prophet the question raised whether the army should carry on or called for the defence of medina. Abu bakr should determination and said “I shall send usama’s army on its way as ordered by the prophet, even if I am left alone” Khalid was chosen by Abu bakr to lead the army as he had a reputation and led his troops from one victory to another.

By the time Ali was caliph some of the Muslim lost faith in Islam and therefore rebelled against Ali.
It is for this reason that I believe that Malcolm X is genuinely religious. If he only joined the Nation of Islam for political reasons, he would have abandoned Islam in general after his break with the Nation (which was also driven chiefly by political reasons), but instead he joined with mainstream Sunni Islam and continued practicing. In fact, Malcolm’s political views were seemingly softened by Sunni Islam and particularly the concept of global Islamic brotherhood, regardless of race. He begins arguing for racial equality and tolerance, as opposed to the violent idea of equality he had believed in before this point, in which blacks and whites could not coexist peacefully in the same country. He leaves the NOI partly for not being

Malcolm’s travels to the Middle East transformed his spiritual aspects, and how he looked at the current issues facing the United States. He underwent a quick conversion, which later made him an international figure, later in his life. After visiting Mecca, he realized that Africans needed to embrace brotherhood by converting to the Muslim faith in order to fight racism.
The fights among Sunni and Shia or Shiite Muslims has been a historical mastery that covered by political authorities. These authorities want to keep up the huge split among Muslims for politician reasons and minor disagreements of Islamic understanding. Therefore, the whole world notes the conflict between Sunni and Shia Muslim which have caused the death of millions sine the begging of the conflict. The first article discussed the begging of Islamic religion that was founded by Prophet Mohammed who left a huge struggle among his people for whom should succeed the highest position of Islam. The author mention that Mohammed’s daughter Fatima disagreed against Abu Bakr as being the new leader of Islam.
The terrorists, or better known as the Taliban, attacked America under reasonable moral claims. In the perspective of the Taliban and the Iraqi insurgents, the action to attack the United States was morally sensible to declare a just war. The Islamic group’s actions are based on their religion of fighting in the name of Jihad. In the Quran (holy book in Islam), Jihad is translated to “holy war”, but mostly defined as struggling or striving (Jihad). Radical Muslims took the meaning of Jihad to an extreme measure of performing violent acts for it is what their “God wants”.

Perhaps Hassan could know Amir’s thoughts so well because he also shared Amir’s blood. Amir eventually developed some courage and little bit of boldness.

Good leader, with a strong self-confidence and an influential figure that wanted all the best for his nation, especially the Arabian Islamic nation. Everybody does mistakes and no one is better than the other, no one is complete except Allah. People do mistakes through their life, but that does not mean it cannot be fixed. That’s what Mr. Ahmad went through. In his early 20s, like every young man he has spent almost all of his time in fun and entertainment.
My Dad: My Hero “Any man can be a Father but it takes someone special to be a dad.” -Anne Geddes. The older I get, the more and more I learn to truly appreciate this quote. I have been blessed by being born into the family that I have, but sometimes I take that for granted. One person that has always been a constant role model for me is none other than my father. When people ask me to describe my dad I would say that he’s a hard worker, intelligent, kind, respectable, respectful, and a strong Christian.
