Since our country is just a few months out from a critical election, let’s go over some great questions to ask Muslim candidates. These questions and tips are taken from Dr. Stephen Kirby’s outstanding book, Islamic Doctrine Versus the U.S. Constitution: The Dilemma for Muslim Public Officials. First, a few general tips from Dr. Kirby:

Try to attend the event with friends, but don’t sit near each other; have your questions written out ahead of time and read straight from your card; include the source – Quran or hadith chapter and verse, or the ROTT specifics – in case anyone challenges you. Be polite but push for an answer; and try to have someone record the event so you can get more mileage (in terms of educating people) by posting the video on social media.

Here is one of Kirby’s questions regarding our First Amendment freedoms: “Will you go on record now and state that our First Amendment right to freedom of speech gives the right to anyone in the United States to disagree with your prophet Muhammad, and will you also go on record now and state that you support and defend anyone’s right to criticize or disagree with your prophet Muhammad, and that you condemn anyone who threatens death or physical harm to another person who is exercising that right?”

With our country and its freedoms hanging by a thread, we all need to get out and into the political arenas and speak up. The overarching goal for Muslims is to turn nations Islamic, thereby growing the Islamic caliphate, and they have made a great deal of headway. Please purchase Dr. Kirby’s book and share the information with others. Our world may be freer for it.
