Considered the Godfather of Muslim Comedy, Preacher Moss was remains the pioneering spirit that endeavored to bring the essence of Muslim community life to the mainstream, and continues to do so.
Remarked Moss, “You have two perceptions of the American Muslim, like that of the African-American, or Latino America. The first would be the idea that I need this society to validate my value. The second which is the truer model is that I already have parameters to help my validate myself, and thus determine my own value. In my case that value is measured in smiles. In that way I am a very wealthy man.
