The first Muslims arrived in Minnesota in the 1880s, and over 130 years later, Minnesota’s Muslim population continues to grow. It is one of the most diverse Muslim populations in the United States and includes immigrants, refugees, and native-born Americans hailing from Somalia, Bosnia, the Middle East, and East Africa.
Get to know Islam, the religion practiced by Minnesota Muslims. Test your knowledge of Islam and enjoy an in-depth exploration of the Muslim faith, the varied ways Muslims practice their beliefs, and the diversity and vibrancy of Muslim communities around the world, around the nation, and in Minnesota.
This program is led by Jaylani Hussein, executive director of the Minnesota chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations. It is offered in conjunction with the exhibit Somalis + Minnesota.
