FROM THIS EPISODE
The Muslim religious tradition of Haj has begun, drawing Muslims from around the world to religious sites in Mecca, Saudi Arabia. While here in the US, the nation's first Muslim congressman will be sworn into office next week. How do American Muslims practice their religion in a culture that is often at odds with their beliefs? Do immigrant Muslims and American converts differ in their religious beliefs? Is a distinct American-Muslim identity emerging?
