Stories from the Iftar

"One of the primary purposes of Taking Heart was that bridges get built not by facts but by relationship, by interaction, human interactions." - Iman Asad Zaman

The best way to understand the night is to go through the stories. Stories are what makes us human and allows us to connect with people we have never meet. Here are some stories about the night of the Taking Heart. Some are lighthearted to show that Muslims are not vastly different from everyone else. Others are serious about showing the thoughts and concerns of the community. In an age of Islamophobia, Muslims must have a chance to claim their narrative, even if it's about boba tea.
