American Muslim Finds Obstacles to Clergyship

Adeel Zeb, who participated in CBB’s December conference, was profiled in the Washington Post‘s “On Faith” section recently. His story highlights issues around the need for Muslim spiritual leaders rooted in U.S. culture.

“I think that finally there is a realization [in the United States] that qualified imams do not just appear; they have to be developed,” says Ingrid Mattson in the Post article. Mattson, president of the Islamic Society of North America, spoke during CBB’s December conference on civil rights in a post-9/11 world.

Additional photos of Zeb and his work as a volunteer chaplain at American University also appear on-line.
