Who are We
The TAM Group (here and after TAM) is comprised of a highly trained eclectic group of experts from various professions and disciplines in radicalization, Islamic theology, human development, social services, prison chaplaincy, and community organizing.
This group is based in Islamic orthodoxy with various backgrounds and specialties that have decided to work together toward the goal of educating the American public about the fallacious claims made by various “Jihadi” groups as it relates to fighting in the cause of Islam, jihad, killing non-Muslims, war in the Muslim lands and what it means to be a good Muslim. TAM will provide unfiltered scholastic research, centered upon the extremist ideologies being heavily propagated over the internet and social media. TAM will explain the origins of these ideologies and issues and identify why this is not the correct path to paradise based on legitimate prophetic traditions and scripture. TAM will convey to the American public that orthodox Islam does not equate to terrorism. Islam neither condones terroristic acts nor do the general public have anything to fear from the religion of Islam.
- TAM's Meaning
To address the various ideologies that seek to divert Muslims from correctly understanding and practicing their faith based upon established tenets of peace, good conduct and societal participation.
To become the repository of scholastic research and material centered upon the extremist ideologies that are being propagated here in the US and abroad. To specifically correct Western societies’ view of the perceived connection between the Islamic faith to extremist tendencies. To operate a holistic facility that will address the mental, physical, and religious complexities of individuals affected by extremist propaganda.
The word TAM derives from the Arabic phrase, تَصْحِيحُ الأفْكارِ المُتَطَرِّفَةِ , for which the translation stands “Rectifying Extremist ideologies”. The transliteration of the Arabic phrase into English is “Taṣḥīḥ-ul-Afkār al-Mutaṭarrifah” .
