The Lebanese Muslim Association produly invites you to the PRESERVING OUR FAITH TOUR featuring special international guest Shaykh Abdullah Bin Hamid Ali.

For the first time in Australia, Shaykh Abdullah Bin Hamid Ali, head of Zaytuna College’s Islamic law program, will be hosted across three events and a Juma'ah Khutbah, where we hope to open conversations on our current political contexts and the consequences on our spiritual conciousness.

Below are the details for events, make sure you register below and purchase your tickets to the retreat, and don't miss out on an exlcusive opportunity to learn from Shaykh Abdullah.


Event One: Conversations on Race, Muslims and Power

DATE: Wednesday 6th December 2017
TIME: 6.30PM – 9.00PM
VENUE: LMA Library
SPEAKERS: Shaykh Abdullah Bin Hamid Ali, Dr Yassir Morsi
COST: FREE

OUTLINE:
Muslims, both locally and globally, have often struggled contextualising their challenges and their conditions. As a community, we have come to identify islamophobia and racism as recurring issues we face, but we have not yet found a way to navigate them and to properly address them. As such, we invite our community to attend an essential conversation on Race, Muslims and Power, addressing the many ways we speak about and engage with these issues.


Event Two: Muslims in the Age of Trump

DATE: Thursday 7th December 2017
TIME: 6.30PM – 9.00PM
VENUE: LMA Hall

SPEAKERS: Shaykh Abdullah Bin Hamid Ali,

COST: FREE

OUTLINE:
Donald Trump has been President of the United States for less than a year, and yet his
actions and statements have had enormous effects on the Muslim community around the world. From discussions of Muslim travel bans, walls on the border, to the support of neo-nazi’s and the alt-right, the Trump Presidency is riddled with challenges. In this seminar, Shaykh Abdullah Bin Hamid Ali will seek to provide a critical look at these issues, how they are affecting Muslims in the United States, as well as all over the world, and the means by which we can respond.


Event Three: Preserving Your Faith Retreat

DATES: Friday 8th, Saturday 9th and Sunday 10th December 2017

SPEAKERS: Shaykh Abdullah Bin Hamid Ali, Shaykh Hassan Elsetohy, Shaykh Anthony Andrist

COST: $120, $150 Early Bird (SALE ENDS 26TH NOVEMBER)

OUTLINE:

The Muslim Community currently faces an extensive list of challenges, both internal and external. From Islamophobia and racism, to domestic violence, misogyny, wealth disparity, education and political misrepresentation, there is an endless number of areas the Muslim Community struggles in, at a local and international level.

Keeping track of these struggles can at times be overwhelming and disconcerting, leaving us exhausted and dejected.

It is within this context that we have organised the Preserving Our Faith Retreat. This is an opportunity to disconnect with the news cycle and discussions on social media, to take time out re-centre and re-connect Allah in all aspects our lives.

Join us for an exclusive two-day retreat with local scholars and special international guest Shaykh Abdullah Bin Hamid Ali that will aim to rejuvenate our connection to and preserve our faith in Allah.
