(Haroon Moghul, Beacon Press)
With nearly 2 billion followers, Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world. It’s the third largest religion in the U.S. after Christianity and Judaism. Writer HAROON MOGHUL explores its history, how teachings of the Prophet Mohammed apply to the modern world, and his own relationship to the Muslim faith in his new book, Two Billion Caliphs: A Vision of a Muslim Future. His 2017 memoir How to be a Muslim, was about trying to reconcile the more orthodox religious practices of his childhood with his beliefs and experiences as an adult and finding his Muslim-American identity. This hour, we’ll talk to Moghul about his faith, the questions he continues to wrestle with, and his vision for a more modern version of Islam.
