American Muslim Identity in the Age of Islamophobia
Date: March 7 at 7pm EST
We are in a time where we are seeing a rise in Islamophobia and hate crimes. For many, this is a time of a test of faith. This webinar is to reflect on the hadith “The people will see a time of patience in which someone adhering to his religion will be as if he were grasping a hot coal.” The webinar will discuss self-care mechanisms to help our community, particularly the youth, to stay connected with their faith and helping the community reclaiming and connecting with the American Muslim identity during a time that identity is often questioned.
