Saturday, September 22, 2018 at 2:00pm
LICC: 4007 River Rd, Louisville KY 40207
This event is free, no pre-registration required.

In contemporary discourse, it is common to hear feminists finding fault with how women are constructed as “relational” beings. They say, why are women only important when described as mothers? Or as wives? The assumption however is that only women are important through their relationships, which is simply not true. Every human being is judged according to how well he manages his relationships, and this applies just as much for men as it does for women. This session examines how thinking of ourselves as “individuals” rather than “relational beings” is hurting not only our faith but also the way we conduct our lives.

Alienation: a state of feeling isolated, estranged

It is common for the modern person to feel alone. We may feel as if we live aimlessly, without purpose. This is truly tragic, because according to a long-term Harvard study, the greatest factor that aids longevity is having a “point” or purpose in life. As American Muslim women, what is our purpose in life? How does our religion direct us to live wholesomely? How do factors in society, such as liberal, feminist, and atheist thought challenge the fulfillment of our goals? Join us for a day-long program in which teachers from the Sila Initiative help us to make sense of these important matters.

Sunday, September 30, 2018
Closed session for Taqwa Seminary Students only

This session will be a structured discussion with the audience on the problem of the intellectualization of our primary sources, such as the Qur’an and the Sirah. Western and Western-educated Muslims have an increasing tendency to look for the “point” or the “meaning” or the “ruling” or the “maqasid,” losing track of the need to connect with, to love, and to find personal meaning and devotion through one’s attachment to these sources, and this tendency needs to be examined. And in any case, looking for the ruling/maqsid/etc. is more the job of the ‘ulama anyway!
