Beyond Sacred: Voices of Muslim Identity illuminates the daily experiences of five young Muslim Americans who came of age in a post-9/11 society, and who are building their lives in a time of continued fear of and violence towards Muslims. The cast members are from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds and reflect a wide range of Muslim identities, including those who have converted to Islam, those who were raised Muslim but have since left the faith, those who identify as “culturally” Muslim, and those who are observant on a daily basis.

“A beautiful, funny, and intensely poignant cry for tolerance” (Santa Barbara Independent), Beyond Sacred supports greater dialogues and understanding among and between Muslim and non-Muslim communities.

  1. This sounds like a fascinating and needed plea for tolerance in our intolerant times. I wish I was in the Houston area to see it, but, alas, I live in New Mexico. God willing (Insha’allah — is that the correct spelling?) I will get to see it soon.

    1. Technically, the correct spelling should be “In sha Allah” sine there are three separate parts to the word – If God wills. Thanks for making the attempt to clarify the correct spelling.
