Understanding Islam

In our study of world religions, we have been fortunate to visit the Islamic Center of Tacoma and have guest speakers Bilal and Shamaela Khan. Students had the opportunity to learn the basic tenants of the faith, ask questions and watch a Muslim prayer time. Students have been fascinated to learn how much Islam has in common with Judaism and Christianity. Bilal and Shamaela explained the Islamic lunar calendar and answered other questions about Islam. Coincidentally, this fell on a major Muslim holiday, Eid al Adha.
