ISPU Annual Banquet 2013: Unmosqued? Reimagining Muslim Spaces
The Muslim community has spent millions to build, renovate and expand mosques around the country. Yet at the same time there is an increasing number of Muslims leaving the mosque, feeling disenchanted and disconnected. Youth are finding it difficult to relate, women are feeling their voices are not heard, and converts are finding it an unwelcome environment. Consequently each is trying to carve out a new space for worship or leave the mosque altogether.
Join us for an evening dedicated to understanding the mosque and what can be done to improve these spaces of worship. ISPU will be launching a major national study on mosques with the hope to provide a glimpse into these religious institutions and insight into best practices for all Muslims in the United States. Featuring Imam Suhaib Webb, Dalia Mogahed, Dr. Ihsan Bagby, and Dr. Altaf Husain.
