Power of the Pen
“The ink of the scholar is more valuable than the blood of a martyr.”―Prophet Muhammed (S)“
Welcome to the CWSC Bookshelf!
Here you will find the scholarly, historical, self-help or popular literature authored by CWSC team members and consultant volunteers. The history and evolution of Al-Islam in America are central themes of many of the works featured as authors passionately seek to preserve a comprehensive historical record rarely captured by main stream press or publishing houses.
Although the body of literature is growing and being penned now by more third and fourth generation American Muslims coming of age with their own experiences and immersed in the stories of their parents and grandparents experiences, there remains an urgent need for American Muslims to tell their own story about their community and its pioneers, freedom fighters, patriots and martyrs who sacrificed much to help establish Islam as a mainstream religion in America, while battling in many cases, the historical evils of racial prejudice and discrimination.
When the story of a people falls outside the “mainstream” the popular view shaped by outsiders, no matter how sincere can form a caricature rather than a true portrait of the times and the people. Join CWSC in recognizing and celebrating our consultant volunteers helping to remake the world, while taking on the urgent task to preserve the historical record and are now helping to shape the future for Al-Islam in America and the world.
