    In regards to Question #8, and other institutions of learning it is very unfortunate to ignore the many full-time madrassahs and other institutions, which are working and have been for many years but maybe don’t have as effective marketing. The UMMAH clinic was established over ten years ago and helps the lower class of LA (Spanish, etc.). This is a great achievement for muslims in America and contributing to society. There are many, many full-time successful schools and institutions like Zaytuna and http://www.nawawi.org, which have done some amazing research on society, culture, history and have collaborated with non-muslim researchers (this is absolutely necessary). Since over half or 60% or our institutions, mosques, and centers in the mainstream are slight sufistics, ashari or maturidi (i.ei studied in India, Pakistan, Syria, Al-azhar or basically any place other than Saudi) of course those were left exempt.
