dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this thesis is to explore and present potential problems and solutions that two of the African American Muslim communities located in Atlanta, Georgia, are facing in America within the four areas of marriage, punishment, inheritance, and finance. The two communities that this thesis will focus on will be the Atlanta Masjid of Al-Islam and the West End Community Masjid. The thesis will address how and to what degree both of these communities respectively manifest Islamic Law in the four areas discussed. Through the interviews of the imams of the respective communities and a survey instrument distributed to its members, as well as articles, online sources, and books and personal observations, the thesis discovers some of the innovative methods employed by the imams and the community members as they address Islamically and legally some of the daily problems living as American Muslims.
