Prayer and Menstruation

This week we discuss our personal experiences with "Salaat," Islam's unique form of ritualized prayer, and a central and required pillar of the faith. However, we focus on a dark side of the ritual: purity rules that prevent menstruating women from praying and exclude them from political and religious participation. We also delve into the topic of personalizing prayer (making it less ritualistic and more meaningful). Imagine orienting your prayer towards the black hole at the center of our universe instead of the black Kaaba in Saudi Arabia. Listen to us share our stories and learn more about Islamic prayer.
