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.
Ta'leef Founding Director USAMA CANON discusses his experience working as a chaplain in the prisons in California. He explains that one of the largest groups of people converting to Islam in America are incarcerated men and women. Usama talks about the need for us as a community to support prison outreach and dedicate time to assisting them in their needs.
Born and raised in California, Usama Canon embraced Islam in 1996. Since then, he has had the honor of studying various Islamic Sciences both at home and abroad under some of today’s foremost scholars.
Usama is the Founding Director of Ta’leef Collective and maintains an active role in various facets of outreach and education, concentrating on issues facing Muslim youth, assisting converts, and developing support systems for Muslims living in the West.
