As a result of taking the course Introduction to the Qur’an, Sanjida Cabot was asked to recite an Arabic passage from the Qur’an in the Baha’i wedding of two friends. She adds, “It was especially meaningful to the couple that I recited because I am a woman and women are so often not permitted to recite publicly (though this is changing overall). Also I recited without wearing a hijab, which many Muslims believe is required. Thankfully the reading was well received even by the Muslim guests.”
