Webinar Series: Muharram - Time to Remember World's Oppressed People

Live streaming will start July 30, 2022 at 8:15 pm Pacific Time, USA
(See schedule below)

The world's oppressed people always paid the price for their weakness, regardless of their faith and geography. So how does Islam motivate its followers to stand for the oppressed people? How did Prophet Muhammad prepare a community of believers always to be a witness to justice? 

Less than 50 years after he departed from the physical world, his grandson relived the message of sacrifice and martyrdom. He inspired the people to be the voice of the voiceless and the inspiration of the powerless. This series will explore the cycle of oppression that different people worldwide have suffered throughout history. 

The series will be hosted by Dr. Hasnain Walji and Dr. Aslam Abdullah, a presentation by guest speakers from different communities, and a discussion with the hosts.
