The West’s Worst Fear
Ali Ahmed

In this socio-political comment on the “presence of Muslims which agitates the minds of many Americans”, the author addresses common misperceptions to remove interfaith misunderstandings and promote a healthier, critical appreciation of Islam and also discusses the historical faultlines within Muslims that call for urgent attention and change.

The Facebook Poems
Irshad Ullah Khan

In this collection of more than one hundred short poems that speak of love and friendship and the fleeting nature of existence, the poet explores the regrets of not living in the moment, letting precious relationships slip away and, sometimes, paying the ultimate price for choosing one’s own path in life.
