Wasat creates space to connect people and explore the American Muslim experience through art, love and learning
Wasat’s mission is to create space to connect people and explore the American-Muslim experience through art, love, and learning.
Wasat was conceived in 2012 by three American converts to Islam who wanted to create space for Seattle-area community members to connect, grow, and learn together. Many dreams and cups of coffee later, it is has grown into a vibrant community beloved by many and a resource for those exploring Islam.
Wasat is an Arabic word that can mean middle-way, just, and balanced. It’s used in the Quran to describe the community that we are intended to be. It is from this concept that we draw our inspiration.
