Ahmed Rehab, and Yaser Tabbara, talk to Worldview’s Jerome McDonnell as part of NPR’s week-long series Islamic Reform: Towards a Global Reformation Movement

About the Interview: (Worldview Link)

“Yaser Tabbara and Ahmed Rehab are co-founders of the Chicago chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR).

“CAIR says its mission is to “enhance understanding of Islam, encourage dialogue, protect civil liberties, empower American Muslims, and build coalitions that promote justice and mutual understanding.”

“We’ll find out what Islamic Reform means to Yaser and Ahmed, and how CAIR draws on lessons learned from the Civil Rights Movement.”

About the Series:

“Muslims around the world have made a bold call for reform; from alternative Quranic interpretations on women to Islamic bio-ethics, today’s Muslim reformers encompass a wide range of different ideas and are engaged in creative solutions aimed at transforming global Muslim societies. This week on Worldview, we discuss the issues with today’s most important reformers. We’ll look at the history of reform in Islam, and the broad scope reform has taken in modernity.”
