2286 - A New Perspective of Islam: Hopeful Visions for Our Time
Muslims are obligated to live true to their identity as defined in the Quran and the life of Muhammed the prophet. The lives of the earliest followers of the religion were a reflection of the correct picture of Islam. However, today the behavior of some people who assert that they are Muslims calls into question their faith and suggests a very different picture of Muslim life. Today there is no greater struggle for a committed Muslim than to fight for a clear recognition of the true values of Islam. For instance, the religion demands a basic commitment to the preservation of life; yet there are groups of Muslims who claim to obey religious principles while they are committing violence against innocent people. Islam requires its believers always to tell the truth, especially to yourself and about yourself. This course examines the essential nature of Islam and how it is expressed in today's world. Lecture (plus questions; Facilitated Discussion; Viewing Videos; Field Trips.
