Description
Summary:From remote Somali villages to mosques in Dearborn, Michigan, more than 1.5 billion people are unified by a call to prayer five times a day. But Islam still faces mistrust and misunderstanding across America. In this ABC News program, Diane Sawyer seeks answers to a variety of questions that many non-Muslim Americans have about the religion. What do followers of Islam actually believe? Does adhering to strict Islamic tradition deprive women of important rights? Are Islam and Western culture fundamentally at odds? Sawyer and other reporters speak with Muslims from all walks of life in an exploration of the history and tenets of the world's fastest-growing faith.
