The word Muslim is usually thought of as synonymous with terrorism. According to Webster’s New World Dictionary, the definitions of Muslim and terrorism are a follower of Islam and the use of force or threats to intimidate, respectively. According to Islamic history, Islam had come to the world to fight the Jahiliya; however, the use of Jahiliya has been ignored for centuries.

New Age Islam is a group of Muslims living in the Middle East and North America who find the thought of supporting Jahiliya completely unacceptable. Promoting non-violence across the globe, this movement desires to align work that enables the sharing of enlightenment with others and to educate young people about the dangers of being susceptible to misinterpreted beliefs including activities that endanger other Muslims as well as innocent people.

Of utmost importance is the constant emphasis on the Islamic spiritual traditions of tolerance, pluralism and acceptance of multinational-cultures.

The following historical passages, taken directly from, serves as a reminder of divine wisdom that illuminates a way to live in peace and harmony with all living things.,-rethinking-islam/d/2197
