|Islam and the West: What Shari'a Says About Non-Muslims|
Thursday, December 9, 2010 6:30 PM - 9 PM
Event has expired. Registration for this event is no longer available.
A great deal has been said, and shouted, recently about the interaction between Muslims and Non-Muslims both here and in places like Denmark and Switzerland. This program will provide the views of REAL scholars as to what classical Islamic Law itself has to say about the proper relationships between Muslims and Non-Muslims in both Muslim and Non-Muslim societies.
