About Haroon

He is also an author, public speaker, and occasional Friday preacher, who works to build a vibrant role for faith in shaping a better future.

A one-time stand up comic in New York City (literally, just that one time) and award-winning journalist and opinion columnist, Haroon’s essays have been featured by The New York Times, NPR’s Fresh Air, CNN, NBC News, The Washington Post, Foreign Policy, Al Jazeera, and The Guardian, among many others.

Haroon has appeared on all major US news networks as an expert commentator on Islam, the Muslim world, and U.S. foreign policy. He has dedicated years to interfaith engagement, teaching at universities, conferences, think tanks, and houses of worship on five continents.

Haroon is the author of several books, including How to be a Muslim: An American Story (2017) and Two Billion Caliphs: A Vision of a Muslim Future (2022). Previously, he was the Fellow in the National Security Studies Program at the New America Foundation and a Fellow in Muslim Politics and Societies at the Center on National Security at Fordham Law School.

In 2023, EqualityX named Haroon one of the fifty most influential Muslims in the Americas. That work always emphasizes the importance of community and continuity. Haroon lives with his wife and family in Cincinnati, where he teaches classes on leadership, literature, and character for more than three dozen middle and high school students.
