The American University in Dubai's Islamic Awareness Club has organised a lecture by Dr. Abdelrahman Thakir discussing the Muslim reaction to the Danish controversy.
Lecture Title: 'Why do we act and react the way we do'
Date: Saturday, 25th of Feb. 2006 - that's tomorrow!
Venue: Auditorium of the American University in Dubai
Time: Doors open at 6:30 pm.
Looks interesting. The last public lecture I attended there was by Sheikh Hamza Yousuf of Zaytuna Institute on trhe contribution of Arabs to civilisation - very informative. It was amazing to see an American speaking such 'fus-ha' Arabic - brother Yusuf spent 10 years learning Arabic and Islamic teachings around the world.
This one should be good too, at least it is timely. May post the proceedings if I attend.
