The number of Muslims running for public office in the United States will only increase. However, each person elected to public office has to take an oath to support and uphold the U.S. Constitution, and Islamic Doctrine is incompatible with that Constitution.  This creates a dilemma for a Muslim elected to public office in the United States.

“As this book goes to print, the U.S. is heading into another presidential election year (2020).  The sobering reality of what devout, faithful, observant Muslims actually believe and are bound to obey must be a factor in the responsibility of every citizen to be both informed and engaged in the political process. Dr. Kirby’s scholarship in this regard could not possibly be more timely and is made of even more practical use by the 10th and final chapter in the book, where he proposes a number of considerations and possible questions for the American citizen who may want to attend a campaign event where a Muslim candidate will be available for Questions and Answers.  The entire text…may be thought of as a handbook for the citizen voter.”
