Belief in Allah is not a mere choice, but rather it is an urgent human need. It is incumbent upon every Muslim to not only understand what we believe but also why we believe. By understanding why we believe what we believe, our conviction increases, and we inoculate ourselves against doubts and false ideologies that may creep into our lives. Firm belief also equips us to call others to Allah.
This seminar provides the student with a foundational understanding of Islamic theology and how it relates to the existence of God. Among the issues addressed in this seminar are ways to nurture faith and the problem of evil.
Shaykh Faraz and Shaykh Abdullah provide us with the keys to faith in an age of doubt.
Free lunch will be served to all in person attendees post seminar.
