Islam 101: Perceptions, Misconceptions, and Context for the 21st Century

Islam 101: Perceptions, Misconceptions, and Context for the 21st Century

What does it mean to be Muslim in a modern world? What if much of what we believe about Islam is incomplete or simply wrong? For more than 1.3 billion people across the world and many people in Washington state, Islam is not only their religion but also a way of life. Led by scholar David Fenner, this presentation focuses on Islam and the many aspects that form the substance of a rich culture, traditions, and a way of life. Endeavoring to provide a complete and accurate view of Islam, Fenner creates an open atmosphere and encourages free dialogue specifically to promote greater understanding of Islam, its history and its place in the modern world.

Continuing the discussion, Fenner's presentation will be followed by a Q&A panel with members of our local community.

This event is free and all are welcome.
