LECTURE SUMMARY A critical lecture that addresses a problem plaguing Muslim communities that many don't want to talk about: the cultural, intellectual and generational divide in the masjid. Jeffrey Lang, a white-American convert of over 25 years, warns of the drastic consequences of such a divide. He shares many insightful anecdotes, including his own first-hand experiences, and the sad outcomes such as lethargic attitudes, non-Muslims being turned away from the masjid, and converts leaving the religion altogether! What exactly is the problem? Dr. Lang explains that on one side are the immigrant elders who run the masjid and on the other side are the indigenous Muslim youth who, along with many women and converts, often cannot relate to their message and methodology and feel repulsed from the masjid. He pleads for radical introspection and implores us to look at the root causes of this divide. Are we really following the sunnah? Perhaps our leaders need to shed the "back-home" mentality & return to the Meccan model in how the masjid is run. The speaker challenges those who claim to follow true Islam and offers practical advice for those contributing to the clash between the surrounding culture & the religious sub-culture that dominates the masjid.
