There have been a number of lists published (see bottom of the collection) over the years, but most were somewhat exclusive, focusing on particular segments of our American Muslim community.  This list is the beginning of what I hope will be a much expanded list.  If you have information about people, organizations, historical incidents, firsts, etc. that should be included here (and can provide a link or a reference from a book to document that information), or if you know about something that occurred earlier than what I have listed as a first, please send that information to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) 


.  You can also type book into the TAM search engine for a list of all book reviews and announcements.  -  If there is a book you feel strongly about and it is not listed here as already having a review written, please write a review and send it along to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) 


- Simply click on the logo on the homepage to go to a lengthy collection of Muslim denunciations of terrorism, extremism, and violence.  Also includes collections of responses to claims about Islam and Muslims, resources about Islamophobia, and general resources on many topics.  If you would like to place this icon on your website, please contact us and we will send you the artwork file.  We have had a quantity of these made up in “Euro-style” 4 X 6” oval bumper stickers.  We would like to have these seen on cars everywhere, and so are making them available at the best price possible.  Contact us to purchase these at $1 each.

“Do not be people without minds of your own, saying that if others treat you well you will treat them well, and that if they do wrong you will do wrong to them. Instead, accustom yourselves to do good if people do good and not to do wrong (even) if they do evil.” — Prophet Muhammad (PBUH)

“Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed.  This world in arms is not spending money alone.  It is spending the sweat of its laborers,  the genius of its scientists,  the hopes of its children….This is not a way of life at all in any true sense.  Under the cloud of threatening war, it is humanity hanging from a cross of iron. — Dwight D. Eisenhower farewell speech to the American people.
