What Do You Get When You Cross Latinos and Islam?

January 9, 2011 § 5 Comments

Latinos are the fastest growing ethnic group in America.

Islam is the fastest growing religion in the US. What do you get when you combine Latinos and Islam? New York City in particular has a strong Latino and Hispanic influence. Said differently, they’re everywhere! I recently came across an interview with photographer, Eirini Vourloumis. James Estrin of the New York Times visual arts journal called, LENS discussed Latinos, Culture and Islam with the renowned photojournalist.

    Salam Alyykom
    your blog is wonderful ,, nice work best of luck
    i would like to introduce something hope to be interesting for you which is AnaBasalli
    AnaBasalli is a prayer mobile App and a social network for Muslims and the larger Muslim community. With AB you can join the 1.6 billion Muslims around the world that are now able to connect with their community in real time.
    There are 1.6 billion Muslims around the world, yet Muslims are physically and socially separated.
    Muslims have rigorous religious prayer duties, yet they don’t have a mechanism to track & monitor those duties.
    A lot of these duties are communal, yet they do not have an efficient way to coordinate, discover & communicate (e.g. find a place to pray in a foreign city).
    AnaBasali (AB), the first innovation of its kind that allows Muslims to socialize, connect, and collaborate in a totally new way. The sharing and social networking features allow the users to engage with each other in a united way and influence and encourage others in the community to participate. Muslims are supposed to be communally united; AB facilitates that unity in the online world!
    AB the prayer mobile App & a social network for Muslims the larger Muslim community provides:
    ** Prayer utility/productivity tools
    – Using AB App’s Prayer Performance Monitor (PPM) feature, our new innovative technology, you will be able to track, monitor and record your body movement during the prayer, and evaluate your performance using AB’s statistics & prayer report.
    – Track & monitor your prayer status – keep track of which prayers have been performed and missed.
    – Get notified about prayer times, even when AB App is closed and / or disconnected from Internet. Track & monitor prayer time based on your geographical location. You can even customize calculations settings to improve time accuracy.

  • When I first moved out to California I experienced the Latinos as very family oriented, large family gatherings in the parks. Very low key, mild mannered, hard workers and while I heard often there are a lot of Latino Muslims, I never met one until this past year and I was so happy to come across her path.
    As a revert to Islam myself, few Americas respected me as much as the Latinos who were very respectful towards me in hijab.
