sPeace. Thank you for the positive article about Imam Siraj. I'm a active member in his community as my parents were over 20 years ago. In fact my father was one of the brothers who "knocked on doors" in the 80's. I'm working on a documentary about their expolits and the resulting effects. Hopefully it'll be the anti-thesis of the "American Gangster" type DVDs that are very popular now. I would love to interview you. My name is Hamza. I can be emailed @ hthegreat@gmail.com. Thanks for your time. Peace.

Imam Siraj isn't fluent in Arabic.
