Understanding Islam and Muslims

Wednesday, January 26, 2022 at 4:00pm to 5:30pm

Virtual Event

Islam is frequently talked about in the media, but continues to be a mystery to most people. What is the Muslim's concept of God? The afterlife? Who was prophet Muhammad? What do Muslims say about Abraham, Moses, and Jesus? What are the core beliefs and practices of Islam? This session offers an opportunity to get to know our Muslim students a little bit better, see beyond common misconceptions, and learn from Muslims about their fourteen-century old faith, professed by 1.8 billion people worldwide. This is a 90 minute interactive workshop with participation from students and time allotted for Q&A.
