misc_none 2:00 PM  -  2:00 PM ISIS & Islam Remind Me about this Event   Tell a Friend
   

ISIS or Islamic State of Iraq & Syria, claims to represent Islam and claims its roots are in the Quran, the Muslim holy book and the Prophetic Tradition (Hadith), recorded  sayings and doings of the Prophet Muhammad.   Fortunately, this is untrue as there are numerous verses in the Quran and Hadith that expound justice, tolerance, peace and love for neighbors. Islam, the name of the religion, derives from the word peace in  Arabic, Salaam. In this short presentation learn the tenets of Islam, the religious  justification ISIS uses to kill Muslims and people of other faith groups, as well as the  answer to those justifications from a practicing Muslim’s perspective.

Presenters:

Sammy Aziz is a student of Muslim-Christian relations at Hartford Seminary and a  member of the Bloomfield Muslim Community Center.

Vjosa Aziz works for the Madina Academy Islamic School in Windsor and is a member of Bloomfield Muslim Community Center.

John Parent is a student of Transformative Leadership and Spirituality at Hartford  Seminary. John is active in promoting interfaith relations, education, understanding, peace and fellowship via various networks, joint-services, and community educational opportunities throughout the greater Hartford area.
