The Muslim Experience in Northwest Arkansas and the Creation of the Bentonville Islamic Center


We had the opportunity to sit down with leadership at the Bentonville Islamic Center and speak with them about their experiences as Muslim immigrants in Northwest Arkansas. We discuss everything from faith practices to the founding of the mosque, from creating an interethnic faith community to the current presidential administration. We learned a ton and we hope you enjoy the episode.
