Unless we educate ourselves with quick facts and defend our youth and teenagers from this culture of misinformation, the cycle of mistrust will never end.
Muslims can't shove our heads in the sand hoping all the negativity will just go away. We need to act before the sense of disillusionment, inferiority complex and lack of self-confidence, in our own beliefs - among our teenage children, irreversibly sets in.
DISRUPTING THE ISLAMOPHOBES:
Given the wide-ranging, divisive and worrying questions some of our children or teenager children are bound to be confronted with - or are asking - or sooner or later will start asking, parents and young adults can use this extensively researched book as a quick reference point.
Produced using layman terms addressing the most commonly held misperceptions about Islam and Muslims, the Q&As are concise, non-academic and user-friendly responses targeting three groups that is, non-Muslims; Muslim youth and teenagers; and parents with young children.
TYPESETTING, PRINTING, PACKAGING, POSTAGE, WAREHOUSING, RESEARCH & MANPOWER:
The approximate production cost per book (including postage) is likely to be US$10-15 net (maximum) and this includes editing, typesetting, printing, warehousing, packaging, postage, research and manpower. The aim is to complete printing and warehouse 1,000 copies by end October 2017.
HOW ELSE CAN YOU HELP?
Alternatively, if you know someone in USA or UK who owns a book printing press and can provide a competitive quote for a Bformat book which is 129mm x 198mm in size, that would be great; If you know someone who can handle "book warehousing, distribution and the supply chain" in USA or UK, this would also be helpful. While there is a cost advantage printing out of China but postage costs to the US/UK will wipe out those gains.
