Rahim Snow Author Event!
Friday, August 4th – 7 pm
Join us Friday, August 4 at 7:00 pm when local Decatur author Rahim Snow introduces his book, Remember Who You Are, on the interfaith spirituality of the Quran. It is written for Muslims, Christians, Jews, and all seekers of knowledge. It contains 28 verses from the Quran, translated into simple readable English and accompanied by a commentary that teaches us how to practice each verse in our daily lives. In a time when Islam is understood less and less, this book can serve as a bridge that calls all people of faith to remember what we have in common and to stand united as a compassionate community.
