Ep. 27: Suburban Islam? - Hassan Lachheb

Suburban i 1 750 476 c1

There isn't a lot of love for the suburbs these days, even though close to a majority of Americans live in suburban areas. The ethos of suburbia is closely connected to the concept of the "American Dream", with its manicured lawns, and white picket fences, but at what cost?

Shaykh Hassan Lachheb from Tayseer Seminary joins the podcast to discuss the negative impact suburbia has had in shaping Muslim communities, class and racial divides, gentrification, and how suburban Muslims must flip the suburban script by affirming Prophetic values and uplifting urban environments for their own salvation.
