Oct. 17: Speaker from Muslims Community on Islam Theme
Throughout the year, visiting speakers will give presentations on their experiences with Islam and Muslims as part of Augustana’s International Theme for the 2013-14 academic year, “Islam in Our Community, Past and Present.”
From 7-8:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 17, in Humanities Rm. 301, we'll hear from Imam Hamzah Abdul-Malik of the Muslims Community Center of South Dakota.
Abdul-Malik is an Azhar graduate in Islamic law with more than 15 years of formal Islamic education and broad experience of Islamic cultures. He has mastered Arabic, memorized the Holy Quran, and served as an education consultant and spiritual guide for Muslim communities nationwide.
Designed to increase students’ understanding of global issues, Augustana introduced the International Theme three years ago and speakers are sponsored by the Co-Curricular Council. Throughout the academic year, students study and support theme-related issues with planned events.
