“I have knocked the door of the churches, talking to the pastors, building communities with Jews, Christians, Hindus and others,” says New York-based Imam Shamsi Ali. “We talk with them about how to work together.”
Ali is one of several American Muslims in the video “How Do American Muslims Live Their Religion?” who discuss how their faith integrates with everyday life.
For example, Boy Scout leader Abdul Rashid Abdullah connects Islamic values with scouting.
“As a Boy Scout leader, really I find a lot of relevance between the values that Islam teaches me and the values that scouting tries to really help instill and practice,” Abdullah says.
