GPA Cultural Excursion Recap: Al Farooq Masjid

Tuesday, January 2, 2018   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Angela Pruitt
Over a dozen GPA members attended our cultural excursion to the Al Farooq Masjid on November 15. Dr. Khalid Siddiq, our host, was very informative & generous with his time walking us through Islam as a faith, how it is practiced, and some of the important cultural considerations. Here’s what some of our GPA members had to say about the event: 
“Our visit to Al-Farooq Masjid was eye-opening.”  
“The trip to the Mosque helped me better appreciate the strengths of the Muslim faith.”
“I was struck by the similarities between Christianity, Judaism, and the Islam, and I came away with a deeper appreciation of a religion observed by over a billion people.”
“It was very enlightening to learn about how Islam is practiced in our community and around the world. This experience opened my eyes to how much I really didn't know and how much I still have to learn.”
Thank you to all those who attended. We look forward to connecting with GPA members at our 2018 events.
-- Dr. Drew Adelman, PhD, GPA Membership Co-Chair
