Ramadan is a time of prayer, fasting, and contemplation. For Mansoor Shams, it’s also a time to connect with people of other faiths.

Shams is a veteran. A decade after his military service, he founded Muslim Marine to help combat Islamophobia and intolerance through conversation. He sees his mission as both a religious duty and a service to his country.
