As part of their religious studies, The All Saints’ Episcopal Day School kindergarten students welcomed Azra Hussain, president of the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Arizona to campus.

Ms. Hussain spoke to the kindergarten religion classes about Islam.

The age-appropriate session was met with many questions as the children learned about how Muslims pray, the Qur’an, the Muslim holidays, and much more, according to a press release.

Children in Lower School Religion learn about Christian holidays, and discuss the holidays and festivals of other world religions, including Judaism, the Islamic faith, and the Baha’i faith.

Founded in 1999, the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Arizona is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization providing certified speakers, workshops, and other educational opportunities on Islam and other faith traditions. The ISBA is dedicated to providing opportunities for education, civic engagement, and constructive dialogue to enrich our community toward a better understanding of Islam and other faith traditions.

In accordance with the Episcopal ethos, All Saints’ firmly promotes inclusivity and treasures the diversity present within the community. Inviting speakers that can share another culture with the community is a continued demonstration of this, the release stated.
