Students Take Cultural Field Trip

PHRE Field Trip_online.jpg
Twenty-six Truman students from the PHRE class on Islam were guests at the Daar-ul-Islam Masjid in St. Louis, Oct. 19. Following a noon Middle Eastern dinner at the Pakistan Saffron Restaurant in Manchester, Mo., the students observed the Jumu’ah Friday prayer and then participated in a two-hour question and answer discussion. A brief tour of the Al-Salam Day School and a visit to the library marked the end of the field trip which is a required segment in the Islam course taught by Mark Appold, associate professor of philosophy and religion. The Islamic Foundation of Greater St. Louis is home to Missouri’s largest mosque.
