"No one in my lifetime has done more to promote human excellence, decency and peace among people of all races, faiths, etc. than Imam W. Deen Mohammed. G_d blessed me to travel with him across the United States of America as he appealed to America’s college and university professors and students to take up the work of promoting human enlightenment and progress here in America and throughout the world.

Imam W. Deen Mohammed, himself, suggested the title for our first book, Thoughts for Searchers Seeking to Understand Life (and consequently the title of this webpage). He believed that people of elevated thinking would appreciate a compilation of his intimate thoughts on a plethora of subjects. We pray G_d blesses us with the opportunity to publish many more books and publications that are inspired by the work of America’s Imam, our brother, our leader, Imam W. Deen Mohammed.


There is not a day that passes without me remembering Imam W. Deen Mohammed, his faithful work, his Qur’an-inspired logic and intellect, his humor and his love for all human beings. He was like a father and a brother to me.  I dedicate this webpage to him.  May Allah bless him to be on the highest level of the Paradise along with our beloved Prophet, Muhammed, the prayers and the peace be on him."
