Black Pilgrimage to Islam

Shuiab Abdur Raheem was a Sunni Muslim who lived and worked as a night clerk at the Metropolitan Transit Authority in New York. Although he was active in terms of participating in Muslim practices and he had a relatively good job, he preferred to leave his work as soon as he could because problems arose regarding his identity as an orthodox Muslim. Shuiab was well aware of how to distinguish between the Nation of Islam or the “Black Muslims” and orthodox Islam, which attempts to adopt the scriptures and the teachings attributed to the Holy Quran while also considering the life of Prophet Muhammad ibn Abdullah.

Keywords:   Shuiab Abdur Raheem, Sunni Muslim, orthodox Muslim, Holy Quran, Prophet Muhammad
