Folks who are concerned about Islam often ask what they can do.
Here is what you can do:
1) Educate yourselves so that you are able educate others about the reality of Islam;
2) Step out of your comfort zone, look for opportunities to talk about Islam with family, friends, and religious and secular leaders; and
3) Go to events where presentations on Islam are being made and ask the hard questions, based on the information you have gained from authoritative Islamic sources. When you go to these events, take along some like-minded, knowledgeable friends so you won’t feel all alone. Hold Muslims and non-Muslims accountable for accurately presenting Islam.
Here is how you can get started. I spent the latter half of my 31 ½ years in law enforcement as a detective investigating white collar crimes and public corruption. For each investigation I put together a case file of information. Below is a link to a case file you can create so that you can investigate Islam yourself, learn about the reality of Islam and then take your case file with you when you talk about Islam and go to Islam-related events:

Knowledge is power, but only if that knowledge is used!
