Thanks for checking out Episode #3 of We're Just Talking About It.

In episode #1 we discussed the terms you should know to help you better understand Islam. In this episode, we put those terms to use and learn how to get the conversation started. 

As non-muslims, Americans may be uncomfortable or scared to get the conversation started with Muslims. We are asking those uncomfortable questions in hopes of breaking down those barriers that stop us from starting a conversation. 

In 15 minutes, We talk about:

  • How to get the conversation started
  • Religious Beliefs
  • Going to a Mosque
  • Interfaith Dialogues 
  • Dining Together
