The Story of IslamInSpanish
IslamInSpanish is an educational non-profit organization that was established out of the need to educate Latinos about Islam in the Spanish language worldwide after the devastating incident of 9/11. It is was founded by Mujahid Fletcher, a Colombian convert to Islam who’s need to share Islam with his father and family led to discover that there was no material in the Spanish language. After his father’s conversion 3 months later, both of them and his recently converted wife all worked together to bring about a balanced understanding of Islam within a culturally relevant manner which lead to the creation of the 1st cd produced entitled “La Religion de la Verdad” (The Religion of Truth) which became the means to his wife’s aunt embracing Islam before her death from Cancer.
The production of that first cd became distributed to to Spanish-speakers worldwide with great success of educating and many even accepting the tenants of Islam as their new way of life. IslamInSpanish original mission was to become the trusted source of Islamic Multimedia resources and products to educate Latinos in the Spanish language worldwide and to date has produced over 500 audio books, 250+ television shows, and carried out 1000s of live events in North and Latin America. As a pioneer and leader it seeks to empower people who will empower their respective communities and bring about a sense of peace and common-good worldwide by clarifying misconceptions of Islam and culturally attaching Latinos to their common Islamic roots historically from Al-Andalus or Andulucia to normalize the notion of Islam to Spanish-speakers while encouraging universal principles of a common human good and diversity.
