Muslims in America who reject extremist or fundamentalist expressions of Islam at home and abroad feel the urgent need for a voice that can represent them in the current debate about Islam, America, and the West. Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf—the so-called Ground Zero Imam—has become that voice. This is his vision for a new, American Islam.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder and CEO of the Cordoba Initiative, has served as Imam of the al-Farah mosque since 1983 and is the visionary behind the Cordoba House project planned near the World Trade Center in New York City. The author of three previous books about Islam, an American goodwill ambassador abroad, and a sought-after speaker and media guest, he lives in New York City.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf was once the lead cleric associated with the proposed Islamic community center some critics called the "ground zero mosque." In his new book, Moving the Mountain, Rauf calls for moderate Muslims to step up and marginalize the voices of extremists. More at NPR.org
