Moving the Mountain

Free Press | March 5, 2013 | 240 pages

Now in paperback, an open and honest clarion call inviting readers to a deeper understanding of the role of moderate Muslims in America and in the world. Many know Imam Feisal as the man behind the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque,” an interfaith community center he is trying to build near the World Trade Center site. He is the go-to talking head every time something happens in the Arab world or with regard to Islam in general—from the aftermath of 9/11 to Congressman King’s hearings, from the Arab spring to the death of bin Laden. More important, however, he is a man of faith and a proud American. As a moderate and modern Muslim, the Imam’s true beliefs are more liberal than conservative media would like us to think. For example, the Imam thought the death of bin Laden marked a turning point for Muslims, opening room for alternate, moderate voices that are closer to the true nature of Islam. He argues that orthodox Islam supports equal rights for women, religious tolerance and dialogue, and insists on the relevance of Shariah for democracy in America and for the revolutions in the Middle East. Drawing on his personal experiences, the Imam speaks up on behalf of disenfranchised Muslims around the United States who are spiritual, moderate, and patriotic. A bold, thoughtful book, Moving the Mountain presents a fresh perspective and provides a common ground for all Americans—Muslims and non-Muslims alike.
