Pearl of Wisdom

'I was sitting with the Messenger of Allah (SAWA) in Baqi' on a cloudy and rainy day, when a woman passed us on a donkey. The foreleg of the donkey slipped into a pit and the woman fell off. The Prophet (SAWA) turned his face away. They [his companions] said, ?O Messenger of Allah, she has trousers on.' He said thrice, ?O Allah! Forgive the women clad in trousers' ?O people! Wear trousers for they are the most covering of your garments, and safeguard your women by [making them wear] them when they go out.'

Imam Ali ibn Abi Talib [as]
Tanbih al-Khawatir, v. 2, p. 78

Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think E-mail

Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think, a new documentary film from Unity Productions Foundation, explores the expertly gathered opinions of Muslims around the globe as revealed in the world’s first major opinion poll on the subject, conducted by Gallup, the preeminent polling organization.

Gallup researchers began by asking the questions on every American’s mind. Why is there so much anti-Americanism in the Muslim world? Who are the extremists and how do Muslims feel about them? What do Muslims like and dislike about the West? What do Muslim women really want?

Crucial policy decisions hang on these questions. They continue to generate passionate disagreements in the public square. Yet for all the heat and controversy, the actual views of the world’s Muslims have been conspicuously missing from this debate.

Now, we have the missing answers and statistics, gathered, parsed, and analyzed not by pundits but by professional researchers.

As part of this groundbreaking six-year project, Gallup conducted tens of thousands of interviews with residents in 35 predominantly Muslim nations, as well as smaller populations in Europe and the USA. The broad extent of the polling has delivered findings for the world’s 1.4 billion Muslims with a plus or minus accuracy of 3%

Focused on the issues of Gender Justice, Terrorism, and Democracy –the film presents this remarkable data deftly, showing how it challenges the popular notion that Muslims and the West are on a collision course. Like the research, the film highlights a shared relationship that is based on facts – not fear.

Experts featured (A Partial List): Dalia Mogahed, Executive Director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies, John Esposito, University Professor, Georgetown University, RamiKhoury, Editor of the Daily Star (Beirut), and Kenneth Pollack, Director of Research, Saban Center for Middle East Policy at the Brookings Institute.
