Sharia Financing Helps US Muslims Achieve Home Ownership Dream
by Mana Rabiee
Khadijah Sahak, 59, sits in the family room of her neatly-kept townhouse in Sterling, Virginia. The Afghan news program broadcasting from her wall-mounted flat-screen television is discussing the Taliban.
This leafy Washington suburb is a long way from the refugee camp in Pakistan where Khadijah's family says they lived after leaving Kabul in 2002.
"We like the house very much," she says in Dari, adjusting the white headscarf draped loosely around her face. "We are very comfortable here. We are at peace."
