  1. I’m glad the website is back in the air. I wish you all the best and salaam, mr. Ramadan. Thanks for being a voice of decency in the world.

  2. Assalam Aleikum

    Congratulations, Dr. Tariq Ramadan! I’ m a Brazilian Muslim and I always talk about your essays, articles and videos.

    You are the ‘real’ Moslim.Like in the old times! I see a great Joy and Pleasure when you speak about the Q’unram, the Sunnah and Islam in general!

    Sorry for the ‘excessive’ demonstration of respect!!!


    • Assalamu allaikum to all,
      I am a Canadian Muslim and I agree with my Brother in Brazil.

      I also wanted to add that we are all true and beautiful muslims. Today I was at a General Assembly at McGill (one main point of discussion: the bombing of schools in Gaza, which, as the other side kept pushing against the discussion, never happened… I think if we were organized we could have easily passed it–maybe it would have been a historic move at McGill) and I was so proud of our community and all people who stand up for justice!! We all played a role and we were all there in support of justice. I think we are all unique and special, and if one of us is missing then we’re missing a lot. So I would like to call out to all muslims to stand out and to make a difference in their societies and at the international level… inshaAllah we can do this!

      I love you all in Allah (Allah knows),
