Being There

General NewsAsSalaamu alaikum,

I pray that you all are in the best of faith and health. I just would like to remind you all of the importance of letting it be known that you are available. The reason I bring this up is that often times, we may go to a new duty station and find out that there is no Islamic service or lay leader. Many people want to know about Islam from a Muslim.

For God and Country Review

General NewsAsSalaamu alaikum,
I pray that you all are in the best of health and iman. Alhamdulillah for making this book accessable to the public. Finally a book that speaks of the realities of muslim military life from a muslim perspective. Many of us can relate in many ways to the story of Chaplain Yee in Gitmo. In the book, there were many lessons to be learned. Also, it was a sharp reminder of the times we live and and the fact that we have a long way to go before we can achieve true equality in America and abroad. May the book serve to soften the hearts of its readers, increase our awareness of stereotyping, and may Allah bless the author and those who helped free him from his wrongful imprisonment.

For God and Country

General NewsAs salaam alaikum,

I just finished reading this book. And it was very eye opening as well as encouraging and inspiring to myself, after having served in the military for nearly 22 years, as a muslim. We can't forget this lesson, in history, that although prejudice is not institutional anymore, supposely, there are still predudice people in the institution.
I commend our brother, (CH Yee) for having wrote this book, which highlights some of the difficulties that muslims may have faced or may be facing in the military. I'm very proud to be an American Muslim and as equally, an American Soldier. I would recommend that every american muslim service member get a copy of this book.

Ma salaam,

Br. (SSG) Lamon
