What is a “sacred space”? What makes a place “sacred”? How does religion exist within spaces, such as mosques, churches, and synagogues?
These questions prompted Imam Feisal to consider how we—as individuals, members of communities, and people of faith—locate ourselves in the world, and how we can let our common love for—and the love of—God unite us beyond barriers. Imam Feisal explored these ideas in depth in an op-ed published in the Philadelphia Inquirer.
At Cordoba House, we strive to create precisely such a space: one that is at once particular to and honors our Muslim faith, but also allows us to transcend that label to embrace the unity of all people through God.
