Muhammad: The Creation of Islam
Registration closes on October 23.
In the world today, most of us have absolutely no understanding of who Muhammad was, where he came from, or what he taught. And yet, the separation that has been created between the the Islamic people and “everybody” else is mind blowing. Muhammad’s insight was that social reform had to be based on a new spiritual foundation. The decline in his tribe's traditional values was the motivation for the transformation of Islam.
In this workshop we will develop an understanding of:
- The Pre-Islamic World
- The life of Muhammad
- The Messenger
- The Unifier
- Judaism and Christianity in the Koran
- The Believers
To be an informed, awakened citizen of the the world, we have a responsibility to cultivate a deeper understanding of the culture and beliefs of the 1.8 billion Muslims in the world today. How can we expect peace in the world when we have so little understanding of those we deem “enemy?”Fee: $85
