Racism Can Only Be Cured by Virtue

Dr. Sherman Abdul Hakim Jackson explains that racism cannot be cured by human rights, but inculcating akhlaq (character).

He points out the hypocrisy in human rights discourse as a symptom of weak akhlaq.

United We Stand: One Nation

United For Change 3rd Annual Conference: "United We Stand: One Nation, One Destiny"

For Muslims to be united with others in this country we need to view ourselves as legitimate Americans.

In this challenging lecture, Dr. Sherman Jackson examines the idea of Muslim membership in the American family and the rights and privileges accruing from that membership.

Perhaps, more importantly, he examines the consequences of exclusion and marginalization for both ours and future generations of American Muslims.

An Intimate Conversation with Dr. Sherman Jackson

Ta'leef Collective presents "An Intimate Conversation" with DR. SHERMAN JACKSON and USAMA CANON (Ta'leef Collective Founding Director).

Usama Canon interviews Dr. Sherman Jackson about his new book "Sufism for Non-Sufis."

Dr. Jackson discusses the need for the Muslim community to address the issues surrounding the rectifying and reforming our character.

Dr. Jackson contends that unless we confront the issues surrounding the refinement of the self and obedience to Allah, that very little will change in our individual or collective body.
