In his memoir How to Be a Muslim: An American Story, hailed as “profound and intimate” by The Washington Post, frequent CNN commentator Haroon Moghul reveals how he struggled with his Muslim-American identity in post-9/11 America. Moghul discusses his experience during an emotional and politically tense time for the country and explains how it influenced his work as the fellow in Jewish-Muslim relations at the Shalom Hartman Institute.
