Maslaha – A New Language for Understanding Islam Today
For our second event in the 2009 series, the Cities of Migration brought together the cities of London, Chicago and Toronto to discuss the innovative ways that the Maslaha Project is using religion and cultural tradition to provide practical health advice and promote intercultural understanding both across and within cultural communities.
From the UK we were joined by Raheel Mohammed, Project Lead Maslaha Project (The Young Foundation) and his colleague Natalia Chan as well as Alya Adamany of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs with a community perspective from Kyle Ismail from the Chicago Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN). Also joining us were participants from across the US, Europe and the UK.
