Ask A Muslim Anything with Robert AzziTuesday June 25, 2019
6:30 PM until 8:30 PM
"Ask A Muslim Anything" is a program developed by photojournalist, columnist and public speaker Robert Azzi. Mr. Azzi is from Exeter, NH and has developed this important two-hour discussion which starts at 6:30 PM this evening. Mr. Azzi has been traveling throughout New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Maine at the invitation of communities to speak about his life, what it's like to be Muslim in America, how he 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. He says: "Nothing is off the table, I'm having fun doing it and I'm learning more about this great country and my wonderful neighbors than I ever expected when I started this venture." ....I think this is an important model; while there'll always be the odd person who will refuse to engage - or whose mind is closed to dialogue - the vast majority of people want to know who their neighbors are and what they believe. Most will, I believe - and my experience suggests - eventually come to understand that we've all been made diverse peoples so that we will come to know each other - and that to know each other we must reach out and talk to each other."
Robert is an Arab-American Muslim, he writes on issues of identity, conflict, and Islam, particularly as they apply in the Middle East and the Global South. Born in New Hampshire, he's lived in Beirut, Cairo, Athens, Jeddah and New York. Although he returned to the Granite State in the late 1980s, he continues to travel to visit and work in the Middle East.
