Threading My Prayer Rug with Sabeeha Rehman at Guilford Free Library
- This event has passed.
May 3, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Sabeeha Rehman will discuss her recent book, “Threading My Prayer Rug: One Woman’s Journey from Pakistani Muslim to American Muslim.”
This enthralling story of the making of an American is also a timely meditation on being Muslim in America today. Threading My Prayer Rug is a richly textured reflection on what it isto be a Muslim in America today. It is also the luminous story of many journeys: from Pakistan to the United States in an arranged marriage that becomes a love match lasting forty years; from secular Muslim in an Islamic society to devout Muslim in a society ignorant of Islam, and from liberal to conservative to American Muslim; from master’s candidate to bride and mother; and from an immigrant intending to stay two years to an American citizen, business executive, grandmother, and tireless advocate for interfaith understanding.
