CANCELLED - NEW! Understanding Islam
Few understand the context and complexity of the sacred tradition of Islam. The values, teachings, and ethics of Islam are no less a standard of human behavior than other morality-based traditions. In this class, we will review a brief history, the impressive world teacher - Muhammad, basic theological concepts, social teachings, the status of women, and also look at the esoteric branch of Islam, Sufism. Here is your chance to understand Islam and its importance to any apprehension of comparative worldviews.
