Building Bridges of Understanding with Canadian Muslims

Tuesday, Oct 08, 2019 at 12:44pm

The word Islam is an Arabic term that means peace and submission, and the word Muslim means one who attains peace through submission to God, yet there are persistent stereotypes in Western media that associate the Islamic faith with oppression, violence, conflict and struggle.

If you would like to learn more about Islam, and separate the guiding concepts of the faith from the myths and misconceptions, join Shahina Siddiqui—freelance writer, author, spiritual counselor, speaker and educator—in discussing some of the top asked questions about Islam and Canadian Muslims. Over the course of three Saturdays starting on October 12, she will cover an introduction to Islam, women in Islam, core values and Canadian Muslims. The class will also include a discussion on Islamophobia.
