With recent events such as the nationwide protests of the murder of Trayvon Martin and the one-percents monopolization of the national economy Universal Brotherhood is on time with addressing both racist and oppressive circumstances that we liveMoreWith recent events such as the nationwide protests of the murder of Trayvon Martin and the one-percents monopolization of the national economy Universal Brotherhood is on time with addressing both racist and oppressive circumstances that we live under today, while offering Quranic solutions to address them. Universal Brotherhood begins with an analysis of both the Quran and the Bible in terms of race, economic exploitation, and the ethical standards that lead to oppressive circumstances. This work shows how modern circumstances are a result of centuries old practices which began in Biblical times and carried out through Americas colonial period to the present. This work engages topics that the Quran is against such as slave interest, institutional racism, the destruction of family, nationalism, and religious approval of holy blood lines. The second half of Universal Brotherhood proposes answers to these dilemmas from the Quran that anyone can follow despite their race or religion. The author shares personal experiences of his own life while interviewing other Muslims from diverse backgrounds to show that these solutions are not only spoken, but lived. Rasuwls work is unique in the aspect that no other author has confronted modern racism and oppression with solutions from the Quran that do not conflict with the beliefs of other monotheistic religions.
