Imam Abdurrahman Sykes is an American born revert who has faced those challenges himself and is working hard to educate both native and foreign born Muslims in a manner that explains both the essentials of the faith and how they coincide with the American experience.  This need was accelerated after the events of the last decade as Islam itself was met with distrust and contempt.  Imam Sykes envisions a society in which Muslims are seen as part of the larger American fabric by teaching an Islam that holds to the essentials of the faith without the cultural trappings that sometimes accompany it .
