What It Means To Be Muslim In America | Huff Post Live

In America, misperceptions and stereotypes can often cloud the way Muslims are perceived. Huff Post Live speaks with four American Muslims about what it's like to practice their faith in the U.S., from their most uplifting moments to their biggest challenges. 
The Conversations of "Muslims in America" is Always Intruiging to Me and Causes Certain Thoughts of My Upbringing, My Life Currently, and The Future of Islam in America... 
It's Inspiring to See My Big Sister Yasmine Yasmine Stepping into These Intellectual Conversations and Shining a Light on Islam [From The Point of View of a Hijabi Muslimah in America, of a African American Muslimah, and a Fashion Industry Insider]. Also to See Her Next to My Favorite Religious Teacher Sh. Yasir Qadhi, Made Me Smile Big and Proud[er] of Her.

Thank You to Everyone Who Shines a Positive Light on Islam.

RESPECT Mag Feature: Photography x Calligraphy | @Calligrafist

It's an Honor to be RESPECT Magazine's Photographer for The Month of April 2015.

Written by: Jake Mayo

It’s undeniable that photography is art. Capturing one’s interpretation of what constitutes visual intrigue through the lens of a camera denotes inspiration. Visual art has not only been a staple of urban culture, but a cornerstone of it’s mainstream appeal. Ismail Sayeed (Calligrafist) is an artist who’s persistence and eye for imagery is setting his work apart. As an in-house photographer for New York’s SOB’s, a coveted music venue in Manhattan, Ismail has shot myriad acts including Raekwon, Stalley, Dej Loaf, Rae Sremmurd, Fabolous, and more. Incorporating his passion and inherent skill for Calligraphy, (decorative penmanship, art of writing) Ismail’s artistic reach and vision stretch far beyond the snap of a shutter. We sat down with Ismail to discuss photographing artists, calligraphy, cameras, inspiration, and how he plans to create a platform for curating art in it’s purist form and the steps he’s taking to transform that vision to a reality.

RESPECT.: Being a photographer and creative, where do you grab inspiration from?
