When we think of the Muslim community, many people associate it with a religion that is strict and conservative. But Islam is more than just a religion. It is also a culture and a way of life that has been around for centuries.
Muslims have always had to find ways to stay connected despite being far away from each other. We pray together, feast together, and celebrate together. We do this in order to maintain our spiritual connection with God and each other as well as to keep us grounded in our faith.
Muslims who are living abroad can still feel connected by the use of social media or by getting involved in the local communities where they live.
