An "Islam Awareness Week" lecture at Iowa State University that takes a look at the situation facing the various religious communities in the turbulent post 9/11 world. The speaker outlines how September 11th changed things for Muslims living in predominantly non-Muslim lands. His presentation emphasizes that those of the Abrahamic tradition must take the responsibility to educate themselves about one another more than ever before. Providing the Islamic perspective on interfaith relations, he comments on several verses from the Holy Qur'an that enjoin tolerance, respect and righteousness. This passionate and motivating talk also looks at the various challenges from within the Muslim community such as respecting the woman's right to speak about Islam and the issue of not truly understanding each others' culture. Other topics discussed: the need to collaborate with other organizations, and how Muslim youth should respond to those who mock them. (Duration: 42 min)
