Understanding Islam and Muslims with Janan Najeeb
Tuesday, July 11 @ 6:30 PM

As a country we are inundated with headlines in the news regarding Islam and Muslims, much of it negative.

As the second largest faith in the world and one of the Abrahamic faiths, it is important to go beyond the headlines. What do Muslims actually believe and how do they put this into practice? What is the role of women and what is Islam’s relationship to other faiths? What are Jihad, Shariah, and ISIS all about?

Join us for an informational presentation and discussion led by Janan Najeeb, one of the most sought after speakers on Islam in Wisconsin. Ms. Najeeb is President of the Milwaukee Muslim Women’s Coalition and is the recipient of numerous awards and recognitions for her advocacy of the Muslim community. She also is an active community leader who was named by Wisconsin Women Magazine as a Leader Making a Difference.

No registration is necessary for this program.
