— Sheikh Anwar Awlaki رحمة الله
Do you think that you will enter Paradise without undergoing any trial? whereas Allāh has not yet tried you to see who among you are ready to lay down their lives in His way and who will show fortitude for His sake.

When we send our children to school in this country, they learn nothing about us other than that we used to be cotton pickers. Every little child going to school thinks his grandfather was a cotton picker. Why, your grandfather…was some of the greatest Black people who walked on this earth. It was your grandfather’s hands who forged civilization and it was your grandmother’s hands that rocked the cradle of civilization…Our history and our culture were completely destroyed when we were forcibly brought to American in chains. And now it is important for us to know that our history did not begin with slavery. We came from African, a great continent, wherein live a proud and varied people, a land which was the cradle of civilization. Our culture and our history are as old as man himself and yet we know almost nothing about it.
