Ask a Muslim Anything

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm @ Canterbury, NH

The Concord Quaker Meeting will host Robert Azzi’s “Ask a Muslim Anything” program, on April 4, at 7 pm, at the Meetinghouse, on Oxbow Road, Canterbury.   The presentation is free, but donations or sponsorship will be accepted.  Light refreshments will be provided.

Directions: Turn right on Old Boyce Road, after turning right, from exit 17, rt 93, N, then continue straight, when Old Boyce breaks off, Oxbow makes two sharp turns to the left, then goes straight ahead.  The meetinghouse is on the right.  Any Questions, e-mail Faith Sillars     faithsillars@yahoo.com

From Roberts page: “Ask a Muslim Anything” is a program I’ve been developing with great success. I’ve found that most people, even those critical of Islam and Muslims , when engaged  in small scale or in one-one-one conversation, are willing to listen and engage with Muslims if that engagement occurs in what are perceived to be safe places: houses of worship, libraries, schools, civic organizations, etc., and I speak to them not as a scholar or academic but as a neighbor, fellow citizen and person of faith.

To that end I’ve been traveling, with increasing frequency, throughout New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts and Maine at the invitation of local communities to speak about my life, what it’s like to be Muslim in America, how I came to convert to Islam, about the religion of Islam and its history – especially in America – and about the Middle East, terrorism and associated political and social issues.

Nothing is off the table, I’m having fun doing it and I’m learning more about about this great country and my wonderful neighbors than I ever expected when I started this venture.
