some interesting videos about Laleh Bakhtiar, Progressive Islam, and Islam in America

As-salaamu aleykum,
Hu Erenler--

First of all, I'm very sorry to hear that people in Turkey cannot get access to Youtube at this time. I am wondering is readers in the other countries are able to see them?

First of all, the following are videos of Laleh Bakhtiar, whose recent translation The Sublime Qur'an set of something of a firestorm by rethinking understandings of Arabic words often taken to imply a justification of domestic violence. Mashallah, I think that she is doing excellent and interesting work. She is an Iranian-American, and a student of Syed Hussein Nasr.

Another clip about Islam in America.

And two more about Islam in America.

I liked these videos... elhamdullillah. Perhaps it's true that the Sun is rising in the West. ;) Allahu 'Alim.
