A Conversation about Islam and Muslims
Shaheen Akhtar, from the Islamic Center of Boston (Wayland), has been building bridges and sharing her love of Islam with the community for over 20 years. She will sit down with Rev. Dr. Kelly Murphy Mason to discuss the roots of the tradition and give a picture of what it is like to be Muslim in America. Topics might include how holidays and life cycle events are celebrated, what goes on in a mosque, what children learn in religious education programs, and what obstacles Muslims face in this country. An audience Q&A will follow. One of the definitions of “Islam” is “Surrender,” the Touchstones theme for February.
