Sher Tareen

Sher Afgan Tareen is a historian of American Religious History. He specializes in the study of religious emotion, with a particular focus on an ethic of responsibility (also known as amaanah) towards the educational well-being of children that is spurred by a feeling of compassion (also known as rahma) flowing from God (li-llah). He is currently writing about the history of the North American Islamic School Movement, framing it as a product of progressive era reforms around childhood that decolonizes motherhood from a pathology of urban decay to its cure.
