Questions about Islam were brought to the University of Oklahoma Thursday night, and Dr. Imad Enchassi was there to answer them.
The imam for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City and assistant professor at Oklahoma City University was invited by OU’s Muslim Student Association to lead its 10 Misconceptions About Islam event.
Among the myths Enchassi discussed were that Muslims are prone to violence in honor of their religion and that they all adhere to “jihad.”
He also talked about the beliefs that Muslims worship a different god to Christians, whether Muslim women are “oppressed” by the religion, polygamy’s place in Islam and explained that Muhammad is not the founder of the religion.
