Islamic Law: Stereotypes and Misinformation


Professor Ali Asani discusses the stereotypes and misinformation that permeate Western and Islamic cultures, and he argues that it is the educational systems in both societies that fail to provide a corrective.

Asani is a Professor of Indo-Muslim and Islamic Religion and Cultures at Harvard University.

At Harvard Extension School, Asani teaches the course RELI E-1555 Introduction to Islamic Mysticism: The Sufi Tradition (online option available). Visit http://www.extension.harvard.edu/cour... for more information.
