Summary

Re-Sight Islam aims to illuminate and introduce to a largely Western audience the Islamic faith and its traditions from the Islamic perspective. "I believe my fellow Americans deserve a second look at Islam from the voice of an American Muslim-free of pundits and politicians," host Qasim Rashid says. Support of the Religion News Foundation goes to promoting religious literacy through projects like this, and supporting the work of religion journalists around the world.

Challenge

A recent Pew Research Center survey found that 65% of immigrant Muslims in the U.S. and 91% of U.S. born Muslims believe there is a lot of discrimination against Muslims. "There is a lot of misunderstanding about Islam and Muslims and this podcast is a step in the direction of educating the public about both," said RNF CEO Thomas Gallagher. This and other misunderstandings are countered by the important work of the RNF through a variety of projects, workshops, resources, and more.

Solution

Re-Sight Islam aims to illuminate and introduce to a largely Western audience the Islamic faith and its traditions from the Islamic perspective. Host Qasim Rashid takes an honest approach, valuing real and unique questions and open discussion about topics that are too-often thought of as off-limits.

Long-Term Impact

This podcast aims to increase religious literacy, especially about Muslims and the faith of Islam. Its interactive format is designed to ensure that from the novice to the scholar-anyone interested in learning would benefit from tuning in to Re-Sight Islam. This is just one of the approaches that the RNF has taken to fulfill its mission. It is because of the generous support of you and those like you that we are able to put out excellent content about religion. Thank you.
