  This guide from our partners at Interfaith Alliance raises and addresses important questions about the Muslim community in America. An excerpt from the guide: This publication provides answers to some of the frequently asked questions about religious freedom and American Muslims. From the beginning of our history, religious liberty has been at the heart of the American vision of democratic freedom. Within the civic framework provided by the U.S. Constitution, religion has long played an important role in American public life, without being enforced or controlled by government. Today, however, as a growing number of religions call America home, new questions are being raised about the place of religion and specific religious groups in American life. For the health of the nation and the good of religion, those questions require answers.
