Windows to Islam @ St. Stephen’s College

This year, I am proud to offer Windows to Islam in coordination with St. Stephen’s College (on the University of Alberta campus).

W2I

Nov. 10th & 17th

10:00 am – 3:00pm

Windows to Islam provides an overview of Islam’s rich historical and religious tradition with an emphasis upon how history, contemporary issues, and the Islamic religious sciences (‘ulum al-din) contribute to the religious identity and practice of Muslims today.

This course is ideally aimed at providing counselors, chaplains, clergy, educators, and community members with the essential aspects of Islam and Muslims that will better enable them to engage with and serve Muslims in our increasingly multi-faith and multi-cultural context.

People of all faith, or no faith, are encouraged to attend.

Attendees may apply for 10 CEU credits for this workshop with the Canadian Counselling and Psychotherapy Association.

Following this class, I will be offering another workshop called Counselling Muslims together with Ubah Mohammoud (MPS) in February 2019.  Attendees who apply for both will save $50 off their total tuition.

A New Class @AlRashidMosque

Windows to Islam is a 2-Day course intending to provide those interested with an objective look at Islam and Muslims. This will be provided through a basic, albeit in-depth, overview of Islamic Theology, Law, and History.

By the end of the course students will have become familiar with many of the subjects covered in a 12-week undergraduate course.

Windows to Islam is not intended to proselytize, or convert any person to the religion of Islam. The sole purpose of the class is to provide fellow community members, clergy, professionals and those interested with an objective perspective of Islam and Muslims in a time when stereotypes have muddled rational observation.

Registration now available online.
