Local Islamic woman reflects on a year of ‘firsts’

A local university chaplain recently became the first Muslim woman to represent the U.S. at the international Holy Quran Recitation competition in Indonesia. It’s not the first time Tahera Ahmad’s made the news. Last year, she was the first woman to open the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) convention by reciting the Quran. She’s here to tell us about these important “firsts” and how they were received. Photo Courtesy of Twitter
