Authored by Sayed Moustafa al-Qazwini

Over fourteen hundred years have passed since Prophet Muhammad bonded rival tribes, united neighbors, and partnered the believers to form one community - the Muslim ummah. However, since the moment that the final Messenger publicly declared his prophethood and message, the internal relationship of the Muslim ummah has yet to fully synthesize.

Why is this so? In addition, how can a person better understand the fabric and tendencies of the Muslims?

To understand the situation of the Muslims today, an objective and deep look into Islam’s history and its key figures is critical. When Power and Piety Collide chronicles the early history of Islam, its development during and shortly after the life of Prophet Muhammad, and then draws an illuminating light on the reasons why Muslims today have yet to establish a fully harmonious ummah.

The author, Imam Sayed Moustafa al-Qazwini was born in Karbala, Iraq to an intellectual and scholarly family who trace their lineage back to the Holy Prophet Muhammad. He initiated his higher theological studies in Islam at the seminary in Qum, under the instruction and guidance of prominent Muslim theologians, thinkers, and philosophers. Imam al-Qazwini is the founder of the Islamic Educational Center of Orange County, California. He spends his time lecturing and teaching Islam worldwide.

Introduction to Islam

Dennis Wholley meets Imam Hassan Qazwini, leader of the Islamic Centre in Dearborn, Michigan, to discuss the fundamental beliefs of Islam, and remove any misconceptions the general public may have. Many  Non-muslims have the idea that the Islamic clerics and leaders are hostile and unapproachable, however Dennis Wholley shows that the Islamic leaders (Imams) are normal people like you and I, striving for a better future for upcoming generations.
