Learning about Islam

In the modern world, we often find it difficult to balance learning about anything other than calculus or participating in extracurriculars! What I've recognized is that people don't often make an effort to learn more about other cultures and religions. People often take a stance where someone has their opinion, and you have yours. However, let's challenge that narrative. I'd like you to spend some time learning about the religion of one of your friends, By making an honest effort to learn, you'll become a better friend and ally.
