Al-Marayati to Speak about Similarities between Medina & U.S. Constitution

March 28, 2014

This Friday, March 28, Muslim Public Affairs Council President Salam Al-Marayati will be speaking at the Islamic Center of Reseda (18206 Victory Blvd, Tarzana, CA 91335) about the Medina Constitution and its similarities to the U.S. Constitution and Declaration of Independence. 

The Medina Constitution was one of the first acts performed by Prophet Mohammed (pbuh) and the Muslims when they arrived in Medina. This document has powerful weight as it stands as a mercy to the world because it is the first constitution to establish principles of governance. The Medina Constitution became the mechanism in which Islam became a civilization. 

"Islam went from a word in Mecca to a state in Medina to spreading throughout the world," Al-Marayati said. "Islam is the only religion to produce a civilization. Other civilizations are based on countries and ethnic groups, and Islam is the only religious civilization. It came from this historic document."

The Medina Constitution is the foundation of democracy, women's right and multiculturalism. 

Earlier this month, Al-Marayati spoke about the Medina Constitution with Dr. Muzammil Siddiqi at the Islamic Society of Orange County.
