On April 21, 2001, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reported on Thasneem Ahmed, who "developed 'Race to the Kabah,' a colorful, fast-paced board game for Muslim children and their families...The concept is based on the 99 names for Allah (God). People who aren't familiar with the religion can play it, and, Ahmed hopes, learn about Islam in the process...Ahmed considers herself a bridge between" the Indian and American cultures.
