Person of the
Faraz Khalid, a Fulbright Scholar at Tulane University, was
instrumental in the opening of The Interfaith Prayer Room.
When Khalid first arrived at Tulane, he couldn’t find a
suitable place to pray. He prayed in his room and, hesitantly, in his
office. Khalid decided to write to the School’s Office of Student Services
to ask about a prayer room. Soon, a student lounge became available for
prayer a few hours each day. As word spread about this new lounge, more and
more international students began using it. Although the lounge was a great
start, it didn’t fully serve their needs, so Khalid and other students and
faculty met again to discuss a full-time prayer room. Thanks to Khalid and
the other students and staff who worked on this project, Tulane now has a
full-time prayer room in Tidewater Room 1506. Kudos to you!
