It's the world's second-largest and fastest-growing faith. It's been part of the United States since before there was a United States. By 2100, one out of every three people will be connected to its legacy. But despite all that, Islam remains a mystery to many Americans. Join author Haroon Moghul as he explains why it's been so hard for so many Americans, including American Muslims, to make sense of Islam. He'll explore Islam's core beliefs, like monotheism, revelation, and moral agency, and their weird and wonderful consequences, regularly confounding all kinds of analysts, commentators, and even Muslims themselves. 

Haroon Moghul is an author, public speaker, and occasional Friday preacher who was born in Western Massachusetts and attended high school in the wonderful town of Somers, Connecticut. A one-time stand up comic in New York City (literally, just that one time) and award-winning journalist and opinion columnist, his essays have been published by The New York Times, NPR’s Fresh Air, CNN, The Washington Post, Foreign Policy, and The Guardian, among many others. He's been an expert commentator on Islam and Muslim communities for many major networks, prominent podcasts, and has spoken to audiences on five continents. Haroon is the author of several books, including How to be a Muslim: An American Story (2017) and Two Billion Caliphs: A Vision of a Muslim Future (2022). Previously, Haroon was the Fellow in the National Security Studies Program at the New America Foundation and a Fellow at the Center on National Security at Fordham Law School. He's dedicated years to building bridges between faith communities across America and the world. He recently moved to Ohio, where he's become a suburban soccer stepdad. He writes about family and faith at his Substack, Sunday Schooled.
