Event Date1/1/2009
Event Location California, USA
Event DescriptionIn light of the tragic and violent events of recent years, and in light of modernity itself, Muslims in the West face difficult challenges, not the least of which is to promote a clear understanding of Islam, its historicity and its traditions. But we cannot be the ambassadors of our religion if we ourselves do not have a deeper understanding of it. This seminar recording called "The Way Ahead: Effective Muslim Responses to Contemporary Challenges" at Zaytuna Institute (now Zaytuna College) in Hayward, California on December 16, 2006 was designed to provide Muslims with a better grounding in the Islamic tradition as well as a practical guide for responding to the challenges and criticisms of Islam in the modern age.
