PHILADELPHIA - Islam and sorority.

The words are so far apart on the spectrum that even Rutgers University student Amina Moghul, a Muslim, couldn't fathom the idea of pairing the staid principles of Islam with an American institution known more for its social graces than religious devotion.

But as an emerging generation of American-born Muslim women seeks to assert itself and its cultural identity, the concept is not so far-fetched.

In fact, through Gamma Gamma Chi, the nation's first Islam-based sorority, takes shape at several universities across the country, it has become a reality."
