Black Public Media

BlackPublicMedia.org and the National Black Programming Consortium present the new Ask A Muslim series.

While we know a large majority of Muslims in America are foreign born there is a large and growing native-born population with a significant voice on the modern face of Islam, and a good majority are black. The Ask A Muslim series focuses on this population gathering scholars, Imams, writers, and cultural observers - even the very first practicing Muslim US Congressman - to share their views on a myriad of topics provided by everyday citizens on the streets of Philadelphia.

This week "Ask A Muslim" focuses on the Qu'ran. What are it's roots? And also is it a misconception that women are not allowed in the mosque?
