7.9

I had a very interesting class in which I learned about the Five Pillars of Islam. In the short two hours that we had for this class, I learned more about Islam than I did in my world religions class last semester. You’d think that a college course with two weeks dedicated to Islam would have provided me with a decent understanding of the religion, but you’d be wrong.  

Our class today took an approach to understanding Islam in a far more personal way, in a way that gave more explanation to how individuals within the religion practice their faith, rather than a blanket statement about Islam.

I appreciate these sort of classes. I appreciate that I have the opportunity to learn about different faiths and traditions in a more personal way than in a college course.
