WHO I AM

Salahuddin Muhammad comes from rich religious traditions on both sides of his family and is a third generation Muslim American. He is married with three children; two girls and one boy. He was born in Durham, NC to Oliver and Rhonda Muhammad. His maternal grandparents, Kenneth and Margaret Murray Muhammad were instrumental in bringing Islam to North Carolina in 1955 as members of the Nation Islam. His entire family transitioned to Islam proper under the leadership of Imam Warith Deen Mohammed. Salahuddin credits his understanding of Al-Islam and what it offers for human salvation to his grandfather Al Hajj Sheikh Kenneth Muhammad (rah) for his practical application of Al-Islam amongst all people. He witnessed throughout his life his father Imam Oliver Muhammad’s intense study of Al-Islam which motivated him to be a student of the religion too. He also attributes his foundational analysis and understanding of the Qur’an and the life example of Prophet Muhammad (saw) to Imam Warith Deen Muhammad (rah). Salahuddin Abdullah Muhammad has a Master degree in Islamic Studies and Christian-Muslim Relations from Hartford Seminary in Hartford Connecticut. He is the author of the newly released book America’s Imam: Warith Deen Mohammed’s Interpretation of Islam in the Milieu of American Society. Salahuddin introduces Imam Warith Deen Mohammed’s comprehensive understanding and application of Islam in the context of the American society. He also shows how Imam Warith Deen Mohammed’s perspective of Islam promotes inclusiveness for Muslims living in America.
