TODAY @ 3 PM ET! "The Complicity of Muslim Leadership" with Dr. Nader Hashemi

Greetings of Peace (al salamu ‘alaykum) dear Friends! 


Jumu’a Mubarak! Happy Friday!


Just a quick reminder for TODAY’S REAL TALK ON PALESTINE, NO. 7 at 3 pm Eastern Time with our dear friend and Board Member, Professor Nader Hashemi, Director of the Alwaleed Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University, and Professor of Middle East and Islamic Politics. The topic: The complicity of Muslim leadership, autocratic regimes, and ruling elites. We will livestream on our YouTube channel and upload the edited recording afterwards. Can’t wait!


Also, catching up on edited khutbah transcripts, below, you will find Dr. Abou El Fadl’s brilliant and heart-wrenching khutbah entitled, “Nothing Matters, Because After Gaza, Everything Matters” (5 Jan 2024). Transcripts still to come: “The Cure to the ‘Cancer’ of Islam” (12 Jan 2024) and last week’s incredible, “Donkeys Carrying Books, or Just Donkeys?” (26 Jan 2024).


We have LOTS of exciting projects in the works (more on this front soon)! If you believe in what we do and what we stand for, please kindly support us with a tax-deductible donation here (especially as our tax dollars in the U.S. are currently funding the genocide in Palestine). May God bless you and all of our collective efforts to improve our world! See you online soon insha’Allah (God willing)!
