Yasir Qadhi is one of the most influential Muslim clerics to lecture in English. He was born in Houston, Texas, and studied in Saudi Arabia and at Yale. Because of his vast knowledge, he's been sought out both by high ranking counter-terrorism officials and young Muslims contemplating violence. He sat down with Eleanor Boudreau to talk about the sometimes fraught cultural position he navigates being Muslim and American.
Qadhi will be part of a panel discussion on Tuesday, October 4th at 7 p.m. at The Church of Holy Communion 4645 Walnut Grove Road. The topic for the evening is Getting To Know Our Muslim Neighbors. The event is free and open to the public.
