For the last three years, New Yorkers Bassam Tariq and Aman Ali have spent the Islamic fasting month of Ramadan traveling first around New York, then around the country visiting mosques as the 30 Mosques in 30 Days Project, documenting their travels on www.30mosques.com. These journeys brought them into contact with the immense diversity of the American Muslim community.
