The Taqwacores

USA 2010

Details  imdb

Seen 1 September 2011

Punk, Muslim, American
That does not even register
For those who believe
In the faith, music and country

They are definitely at the fringe
Of everything, of every group

Do they fit in?
Or do they make sense
Or is it just lots of noise, protestations

When those in the same group
Differ in outlook, opinion
Do you accept them?

It is a quest, a journey
For each individual
Even an adventure for some

Readings, debates, fights, quarrels
An explosive mix, sometimes
As a guide, pointers, lights
On the path to inner peace

At peace with oneself
And the other
