Islam in a Globalized World

Islam in a Globalized World

The World Affairs Council was pleased to host Mohammad Fani and Lesley Hazelton as part of its Global Classroom event focusing on Islam. Mr. Fani and Ms. Hazelton used their dialogue to share actual teachings of Islam and its commonalities with Judaism and Christianity. The objective of the resource packet included here is to teach students about Islam and some of the issues that Islamic scholars are debating today such as democracy and human rights. Teachers may use the sections in the packet as building blocks to teach about Islam, Muslims around the world, democracy, and human rights. Once informed on each of those topics, students can better explore and debate important issues facing the world today such as the compatibility of democracy with Islam. (Download Here)
