Saturday 28th January - After Isha Prayer - 6.30pm Jamm'ah
Shaykh Talal al-Azem (Director of OTKF)
Everyone agrees that education is the foundation of a healthy community. But are all educations equal?
Do all forms of education equally provide our young with the knowledge, experiences, and orientation they need to mature into responsible and intelligent adults in the contemporary world?
What do we stand to lose if community is taken out of education?
To address these questions, this talk shall be devoted to the Prophetic Sunnas of attachment and of community in a truly Islamic education.
<<A short Fundraising Presentation will also be given on behalf of Wilaya Trust - your help & assistance here would be greatly appreciated>>
