"Asalaam Alaikum! So this New Podcast made me cry. AllahuAkbar. You have to listen to it!!

It almost feels like Wow after all this work, 17 years of putting in, our message has made it mainstream. It’s like we’ve been validated by the mainstream and accepted (not that we’ve been waiting for anyone to accept us or validate us as Muslims) but given all that we have had to combat with the media and its bias messages, it’s a breath of fresh air Alhumdulillah. I’m very proud of Mujahid Fletcher and the IslamInSpanish team and community..we did good and this interview says it all.

The fact that the host, Lee, got the message that we are able to dispel all misconceptions SubhanAllah, it’s what Mujahid has been saying to the leaders of the community all along and for years. We truly are educating about the truth of Islam and Muslims (our mission at IslamInSpanish) and Lee understood, Alhumdulillah. May Allah reward you all for all the efforts with this project and bless this work always. JazakAllah Khair to Mujahid for his Vision and Leadership, may Allah protect and guide always. Ameen!"
