Quiet Saturday

The SPirituality of Islam

The Spirituality of Islam

Saturday, April 29, 2017

We will learn about the growth of the mystical tradition in Islam, the rise of asceticism, and the lives of prominent Sufi figures such as Rabi'a, Hallaj, Rumi, and Ghazali.

The day will end with a discussion on how Islamic mysticism can act as a link between East and West.

Led by Professor Liyakat Takim, the Sharjah Chair in Global Islam at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada. A native of Zanzibar, Tanzania, he has spoken at more than eighty academic conferences and authored one hundred scholarly works on Islam and inter-religious dialogue. He teaches a wide range of courses on Islam and offers a course on comparative religions.
