Intro to Islam (feat. Dr. Hussein Rashid)
Islam is a complicated topic and a politically charged topic here in the 21st century. But it is important that we learn about the world's 2nd largest religion. In this video, we will discuss Islam from a nonsectarian perspective, exploring its internal diversity, how the religion changed over time, and how it is embedded in different areas of culture around the world.
