Islam: The Essential Introduction
Tariq Ramadan has been invited to speak as part of the Financial Times Weekend Oxford Literary Festival. Entry is by ticket only, tickets available at: http://oxfordliteraryfestival.org/literature-events/2017/Tuesday-28/islam-the-essential-introduction
Hardly a day goes by without mention of Islam. And yet, for most people, and in much of the world, Islam remains a little-known religion. Whether the issue is violence, terrorism, women's rights or slavery, Muslims are today expected to provide answers and to justify what Islam is - or is not. But little opportunity exists, either in the media or in society as a whole, to describe Islam. Tariq aims to provide a straightforward introduction to Islam and explain in clear language its spirituality, its principles, its rituals, its diversity and its evolution. All are welcome.
