Generation Gap

The life of a young French imam

Kalilou Sylla is 27 and is one of the youngest imams of France. Born in the suburbs of Paris, he has been since 2020 at the Mosque of Strasbourg, in Eastern France. This mosque is one of the most important mosque in the country. With Sphera member StreetPress, Kalilou talked about his path from students’ activist to a man of faith or how he is using social media to interact with young Muslims. This story is part of the Sphera Network series on ‘Generation Gap’ where we explore generational differences across the bloc and how young Europeans are driving change in our societies.
