Lens of the Believer | Grounding Ourselves in Islamic Tradition
The Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W) said, “You will not come back to Allah with anything better than that which came from Him, i.e. the Qur’an.” [Sahih]
Fourteen hundred years after the dawn of Islam, it has become challenging for us to place the Qur’an and the teachings of the Prophet at the core of our lives as we navigate the complex and contradictory issues within our society. We are often confused by our life situations and need a sound framework to reference. In order to ground ourselves in Islamic tradition and correctly apply it to our daily lives, we need a fresh look of Islam that is grounded in the Qur’an and Sunnah, as they have been sent down to us by Allah (SWT) as guidelines for maneuvering every possible aspect of our lives.
Join us as we as an Ummah gain insights into how comprehensive and applicable the Qur’an and the Prophetic teachings are to the complex societal issues of our daily lives and learn the importance of invoking Islamic tradition as we confront the issues we are faced with. Insh’Allah, by the end of this conference, we will unlearn and relearn Islam them through the lens of a Believer!
