COURSE 3 – SOCIAL JUSTICE, COMMUNITY ACTIVISM & KHIDMAH (SERVICE) – REQUIREMENTS ON THE PROPHETIC PATH
Surah 3:104 – “Let there arise out of you a band of people inviting to all that is good, enjoining what is right, and forbidding what is wrong: They are the ones to attain felicity.”
Inspired by the Quranic principle of “al ʿamr bi-l maʿrūf wa-n nahy ʿan al munkar”, this course explores the obligation incumbent upon Muslims to engage in social justice and activism when an injustice has been imposed upon any of Allah’s creation.
Topics that will be discussed in this class are the following:
- Activism as part of the Prophetic model
- Engaging in Politics in the west
- Social Justice for all and our responsibilities to defend Muslims and non-Muslims
