Event description

Description

It had been said that Islam and Modernity were incompatible as the Quran was revealed 1,400 years ago. The Golden Age of Islam, however, had shown that Muslims strived with modern technology back then with inventions still being used even today.

Integrating and assimilating with advancement or modernity whilst retaining our integrity as Muslims is crucial. It is the ingredient that shapes the nature and progress of our co-existence with the diverse people of the world.

Join us with our speaker to discuss the importance of Islam and Modernity as a part of this world, and not apart from one another.
