As part of their Bridging Cultures initiative, the National Endowment for the Humanities has awarded the Richmond Public Library the “Muslim Journeys Bookshelf”. Through this collection of books, films, and access to an online journal, along with special programs, the library offers a bridge to the complex history and culture of Muslims in the United States and around the world.
Join us on our journey as we explore the influences of this rich and diverse culture in our community.
Our Muslim Journeys series continues with Imam Raqeeb Abduljabbar who will discuss "Qur'an and Ramadan"
