Remarkable, Insightful, Intellectually stimulating and uplifting, Policy-making Approach to Literary Brilliance! This Book not only covers the whole life of An American African Muslim living in America but also provides the solutions to the ills faced by all western thinking muslim students of thought and non muslims alike. Nothing makes better reading!

A brilliant examination of current issues, Scattered Pictures, Reflections of an American Muslim is a collection of fourteen essays powerful in their essence and eloquence, including ‘Jihad is Not Perpetual Warfare’ and ‘We Are All Collateral Damage.’ Each essay is a literary work of utmost importance that addresses critical and controversial issues. Imam Zaid Shakir, a former professor and member of the United States Air Force, as well as a leading intellectual, analyzes and reconciles the convergence of Islam and the West. Written in a direct and candid style, each page delivers vivid, resonating detail and effective information. Imam Shakir provides prescriptive guidance for the betterment of the human community and his book will undoubtedly be difficult for readers to disregard. His messages are relevant to anyone interested in the conscious culmination of a healthy and harmonious understanding of humanity within and across global boundaries.

The best anthology of Muslim life in America and what Islam says on key issues. Imam Zaid Shakir is among the greatest Western thinkers. Reading Scattered Pictures gave me a clear picture of the life and journey of a Muslim. It also gave me insight on many controversial and important issues in Islam. The author has a political/ international realtions background as well as knowledge of Islam. What better credentials to write about the issues that affect each of us today. With fundamentalists, terrorism, war and misinformation we need writers like this one to open the doors to a better future.

Great Book! I think that Brother Zaid Shakir is a great speaker and the book has a lot influence on the young generation like me. He is a great outspoken down to earth person. I really think that the youth should really get this book. It’s great.
