“Allahu akbar” means “God is greater.” After recent terrorist attacks in Paris and Mali, Muslims explain how the phrase has been co-opted by terrorists and misunderstood in the West. They discuss media sensationalism, religious extremism, political integration and even the cultural adjustments they make because of the backlash. (Lisa Biagiotti and Irfan Khan / Los Angeles Times)
