Muslim Alliance in North America (MANA) is an organization committed Muslims issues and concerns that especially impact indigenous Muslims—issues and concerns that we feel have been largely neglected. With the launch of this web site we are inviting masjids, organizations and individuals to join MANA.

GRASSROOTS: Journal of the Muslim Alliance in North America

?It is Allah Who causes the seed grain and the date stone to split and to sprout. He causes the living to issue from the dead, and He is the One who causes the dead to issue from the living. That is Allah; then how are you deluded from the Truth?? (6:95) The name Grassroots connotes several nuances of meaning. It reminds us of the principle of growth and development guided by Divine Law, indicated in the above verse. Further, it suggests a fundamental connectedness of the ?people of the land? who MANA strives to represent. As such, it is intended to be both a message to and a message from the grassroots. Our purpose is to inform our readership of matters relevant to the lives of Muslims in America, to illuminate those matters in the light of the Qur?an and Sunnah in a scholarly and analytical way, and to contribute meaningfully to a public discourse on issues impacting upon both Muslims and non-Muslims in America. When we succeed in fulfilling our purpose, all of the praise is due to Allah. When we do not, only the mistakes are ours. We pray for Allah?s forgiveness and we welcome the nasihah (sincere advise) of the believers.
And hold fast, all together, by the rope which Allah (stretches out for you), and be not divided among yourselves; and remember with gratitude Allah's favour on you; for ye were enemies and He joined your hearts in love, so that by His Grace, ye became brethren; and ye were on the brink of the pit of Fire, and He saved you from it. Thus doth Allah make His Signs clear to you: That ye may be guided.

Quran: 3:103
