On this seventh anniversary of 9/11, the Muslim Public Affairs Council pauses to solemnly remember and honor the nearly 3,000 people who lost their lives in the ghastly attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.

Each year, Americans turn their eyes to Ground Zero, where our nation's leaders join the survivors and families of those killed in the attacks to remember all the victims and to reflect on how the events of that day have changed the world so profoundly.

For Muslim Americans, the past seven years have highlighted their critical role in the ideological struggle against extremism and terrorism. Bad theology can only be countered with good theology, and education is a responsibility that each individual carries.
