Ta'leef Collective presents a monthly video series titled "REFLECTIONS." These videos are short vignettes featuring people from the Ta'leef community on topics that range from religion, culture, lifestyle, knowledge, arts, sciences, community, family, etc.

In this Reflections, Ta'leef Board Chair IMAM ZAID SHAKIR discusses compromise, and need for Muslims to approach with caution how they negotiate their religious values with the values of the constantly changing cultural landscapes of the societies they live in.

Born in Berkeley, California, Imam Zaid Shakir accepted Islam in 1977 while serving in the United States Air Force. He obtained a BA with honors in International Relations at American University in Washington D.C. and later earned his MA in Political Science at Rutgers University. Imam Zaid Shakir is a co-founder, chairman of the board, and senior faculty member of Zaytuna College located in Berkeley, CA. He is amongst the most respected and influential Islamic scholars in the West. As an American Muslim who came of age during the civil rights struggles, he has brought both sensitivity about race and poverty issues and scholarly discipline to his faith-based work.
