Muslim works to unite Frederick’s religious community

By Nicholas C. Stern On his daily commute from Frederick to Georgetown University, Imam Yahya Hendi has time to practice the skill of listening. Hendi is the first full-time Muslim chaplain at the university, and possibly the first in the nation. Hendi is also the Imam of the Islamic Society of Frederick and the Muslim chaplain at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda. He listens to the scriptures of the Koran, the Old Testament and talk shows.
