On Tuesday, March 1, AIC welcomed Shaykha Tahera Ahmad, Assoc. Chaplain and Director of Interfaith Engagement at Northwestern University. She opened the program with a beautiful recitation from the Qur’an. Sr. Tahera shared her own spiritual journey, which for her began right after 9/11. Muslim women were the main targets of Islamophobia, and so, discrimination toward Muslim women was heavily felt. This raised a lot of critical questions for conversation and self-introspection among the Muslim community. Her talk was thoughtful and thorough. You can view the video recording below.
