    Faith & Reason

    In an age when faith in God and belief in revealed religion are challenged by scientism, skepticism, and atheism, the need for a firm understanding of the Muslim creed has perhaps never been more important. This weekend course will provide students with the essentials of Islamic doctrine and its epistemological foundations, based on a reading of the classical primer The Creed of Imam al-Sanusi. Course topics include the attributes of God, types of propositions, causality, predestination and free will, the problem of suffering, prophetology, and the Kalam cosmological argument.

    The $20 admission covers all three days of the course! Including dinner on Saturday Nov 23 at 5pm.  Since this is the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal we will be having special celebration for the Birth of "The Beloved Of Allah" on Saturday after the lession and before dinner, around 3:30pm

    No Drinks, We will have TurkishCoffee and Iced Mo-Rock-In Tea! Friendsgiving is a blend of friend and Thanksgiving, and it refers to a large meal eaten with friends either on or near Thanksgiving. ... But when Friendsgiving first came into use, it was used to describe something much more informal than the traditional Thanksgiving meal.

    Post and others I spoke to for this story agree that Friendsgiving seems to have evolved in recent years from a sort of ad hoc Thanksgiving replacement (implemented when people found themselves far away from family on the holiday but near friends) to a common in-addition-to-Thanksgiving event, one that’s exclusively for friends. In other words, Friendsgiving has become a widely celebrated American holiday in its own right—and while it’s hard to know in real time what cultural shifts or forces have led to the rise of Friendsgiving, there are a few compelling theories as to why you may be seeing the term pop up again and again in trend list.
