We are excited to announce an important event for our community next Friday, March 25, 7pm. AlhamdulilLah, we have put together a fantastic panel of speakers to teach about various communities of tradition in Islam that make up our community and world. We hope everyone will make it out to learn and for a chance to talk about the importance of Islamic literacy and unity. See more information below:
What is the real difference between “Sunnis” and “Shi’ites”? Do all Muslims fall into one of those two categories? What about Ismai’ilis? Zaidis? Ahmadis? Ibadis? Why do there seem to be so many different groups within Islam? What problems does this pose for American Muslims? Why is it important for us to know?
Bring questions and join the Harvard Islamic Society for a panel on the different “sects” and communities within Islam, what those communities entail, and what our responsibilities are in educating ourselves on the diversity within our ummah.
Everyone is welcome. Bring questions, bring friends.
