Islam in America
Our Challenges & Opportunities
Dr. Haider Hamoudi

Muslims in US society should be unapologetic and forthright about asserting their space in the national fabric, ensuring the realization of our civil rights, making sure that we set an example by our conduct. This shouldn't get in the way of us also being, internally as a community, able to engage openly and even criticize parts and aspects of our history and present where Islamic law has been used and abused to achieve ends we categorically reject.

Professor Hamoudi teaches contracts, commercial law and Islamic law at the University of Pittsburgh School of Law. In 2014, he was awarded the Robert T. Harper Award for Excellence in Teaching. Professor Hamoudi’s scholarship focuses on Middle Eastern and Islamic Law, particularly, but not exclusively, as it pertains to matters of commerce.
