World Religions Series: Basics of Islam (7/19 & 26)

26-Jul-2017

Understanding the vast wisdom of other spiritual paths demands some knowledge of cultural and religious traditions that are not our own. For several years we have offered a series of lectures on the great non-Christian religions of the world. This summer we will be exploring the religion of Islam with the Islamic Center of Greater Cincinnati. Our presenter is Shakila Ahmad, the first woman and the youngest to serve on the Islam Center of Greater Cincinnati's board.

COME LEARN & UNDERSTAND

  • Muslims
  • Islam in America
  • Basic Beliefs & Tenants of Islam
  • Common Misconceptions
  • Islam's View on Violence
  • Women & Civil Engagement

DETAILS

Dates: Wednesdays, July 19 & 26
