muslimWe’re in the middle of a very important month to the Muslim culture and some of Hollywood’s most prominent figures are taking the time out of their hectic lives to recognize it.

I’m not referring to Independence day or National Chocolate Day…even though, both of those are special days too. I’m referring to the month long ritual in Muslim culture called, Ramadan. Ramadan is a fast done by people in the Muslim religion.

According to the Islamic bible or the Quran, the Islamic calendar recognizes it in their 9th month, which translates to the standard calendar dates beginning in June 28th at sundown and ending on July 27th. We have several familiar Hollywood names recognizing this practice as according to their Muslim beliefs.

Mara Brock Akil & Salim Akil

Writer and producer known for show’s like Girlfriends (2000-08), Moesha (1996-2001), The Game (2006-14), and Being Mary Jane (2013-14), Mara Brock Akil as well as her husband Salim are known for many of their shared titles and his director debut in Jumping the Broom (2011), are Muslim. Kansas City, MO native Mara and former mortuary businessman Salim have been married since 1999 and have two children.

    There is no such thing as a Muslim Bible. The Bible is the bible, and the Qur’an is a separate revelation from Allah (God) to mankind.

    The bible is the only book that has the sorry of the hebrews ( the so-called black man and woman), and those that got here via trans-atlantic slave trade.
    Our people should have spent enough time searching for an Identity, and all they have to do is look inside the bible…
    In the Quran, the Children of Israel is mentioned more times than the so called prophet Mohammed, which in fact was our first slavers.

      If you research the History of Prophet Muhammad you will find that His Ancestor Grandfather was Ishmail, the first born Son of Abraham. Arabs are the offspring of black people and the language of Arabic is a African language. He was not the first to enslave Black people, Black people enslaved black people first. Are the Jews still angry over the Treaty of Hudybia where you commented Treason against Muslims after it was agreed that the Muslims, the Christians and Jews where to live in harmony in the City of Medina. Free to practice your own systems of religion and practice trade. If any outside entity transgressed against the Country then it was agreed that all three faiths would fight together. The Jews violated that treaty by attempting to have the Holy Prophet S.W.S assassinated and was punished according to the Mosiac law for Treason, death. Stop trying to denigrate the last Messenger from my Lord and your Lord and realize that your enmity will keep you from the dwellings of Paradise!

        Ishmael was not the grandfather of Prophet Muhammad (SAW) However Prophet Muhammad was in the line of Ishmael or and ancestor of Ishmael and Abraham who built the Kaaba with Ishmael//// and The Quran is the only book that has the truth about the Jews who were a murderous, treacherous group of people cursed by God and are still committing crimes against humanity as seen in their destruction of Palestine!!!!!!! @ Allison Wright you can believe what you want to it dont mean that what you believe in is right and Allah says In the Holy Quran that he will fill Hell with all those that associated other Gods with him and those that say he had a son and Jesus himself will be a witness against you!!! like your statement had any relevance with the subject matter of this conversation;

    One must utter with their tongue and believe in their heart… By saying la ilaha ilallah Muhammadar Rasulullah,(there is one GOD and Muhammad is the last messenger of GOD), without contradicting the testification… Knowing GOD is not a man and dont have created attributes by saying He has a face , hands ,feet, shin or any other created attribute GOD HAS Life and his life does not had a beginning nor an end.. Neither do any of his everlasting attributes has a beginning nor an end… The qur’an was revealed n arabic and it is not the language GOD speaks its an expression of his speech.. If any more questions just ask a trust worthy muslim like my self not jus any joe blow.. Also you can not become muslim cause you are married to one thats an stupid assumption… Smh .. May Aah have mercy on the muslims no matter what race they are amin !!!!!!!!!!
