In The Path of Islam is a celebration of Philadelphia’s Muslim community members. The project highlights the diverse voices of Philadelphia’s indigenous Muslim community while engaging all Philadelphians with a cultural, religious, or intellectual interest in Islam or in books made in the Muslim World.

Check our website for upcoming events which will include:

  • Fun programs for all ages at local community libraries, such as calligraphy classes and a collaborative installation art project.
  • A world-class, community member curated exhibition, featuring one-of-a-kind artifacts made in Muslim lands and ephemera. The exhibition will also travel to local libraries and masjid.
  • A robust, in-person, and live streaming lecture series addressing the history of the indigenous Philadelphia Muslim community.
  • Interactive cooking demonstrations exploring the indigenous Muslim cuisine, food preparation, and its rich history.
