“Ask in order to understand, and do not ask in order to find fault.”
Imam Ali, fourth caliph and son-in-law of the Prophet Mohamad.
As the Middle East – a region that is overwhelmingly majority Muslim – continues to be mired in turmoil, these tensions seem to have spilled over into the United States. Terrorist groups such as ISIS and Al-Qaeda continue to commit atrocities in the name of Islam, negatively altering perceptions of mainstream Muslims. This has led to increased Islamophobia manifesting itself in the form of a spate of attacks against Muslim-Americans. At the root of this issue is a lack of understanding caused by misconceptions about Islam. Join us on Monday April 6th at 6:30pm at the Harper Woods High School as we explore this and a range of related topics.
