Fact Check: Was Rashida Tlaib Sworn into Office on a Quran?

Yes, Rashida Tlaib was sworn into office on a quran. On January 3rd 2019, Rashida Tlaib was sworn into office with her hand on a quran that was gifted to her by a best friend of 25 years.

Tlaib wrote on Twitter:

I used my own Quran during the ceremonial swearing-in and wore a thobe to display my Palestinian roots. It is a dream come true to be in Congress. We must strive to ensure that everyone is welcomed for who they are in the US.

In another tweet, Tlaib wrote:

I used my own *personal Quran* that my best friend of 25 years gifted me to use for the ceremonial swear in (basically a photo with Speaker Pelosi).

*Note: I did not use Jefferson’s Quran as reported. I wanted it to be more personal (and my own).
