State of the State RI

Guests: Sandra Keating, Associate Professor of Theology at Providence College
Farid Ansari, Imam: Muslim American Dawah Center of RI
Host: Richard August Time: 60 minutes
The purpose of this program is to promote a better understanding of Islam among Rhode Islanders. Our guests are leaders within the RI community, who work toward this same purpose. Keating provides a history of the emergence of Muhammad as an Islamic prophet. Ansari explains the meaning and usage of many Islamic terms, describes the five pillars and the basic faiths of Islam. A split in Islam occurred following the death of Muhammad; this happening sheds light on present Islamic factions. Both help to expand our understanding beyond these basics.
