Read an Excerpt

Let me be frank: I am scared.... As I open myself to the light of Allah, what flaws will it reveal, what corrections will it require? Heroes and prophets have come and gone; the poor are still with us, and they are more ragged than ever. Can I face the immensity of this injustice, call it my responsibility, and taste the rust of my own powerlessness in the face of it?"-Eboo Patel, contributor and executive director of the Interfaith Youth Core
