Art show helps BYU Muslim students grow to appreciate the Mormon faith

By Hwa Lee

UTAH - This year, the BYU campus has reached out to Islamic culture even more. Several guest speakers from Islamic countries visited the school, the Museum of Art is holding its largest ever Islamic art exhibit and its restaurant currently serves Middle Eastern dishes. There are about 50 students who practice the Islamic faith at BYU and the number is gradually rising. Interest and curiosity in Islam have also increased among the student body and in the community, prompting the university’s educational outreach. [link]
