Malcolm X and the Transforming Power of Hajj
Malcolm X went to Hajj in the year 1964. He went as an ardent believer in Black Nationalism and returned to America a changed man. He had a life-transforming experience. Prior to Hajj, he divided humanity into black and white and saw no possibility of uniting them. His experience of Hajj convinced him otherwise.
Hajj made Malcolm X a wholly transformed person - as if he were reborn. Afterwards he not only believed in the universal brotherhood of all of mankind; but became committed to work for the ideals he imbibed from Hajj. Continued...
God, Islam and the Skeptic Mind: Sep. 19, at the U of T
How do we know God exists? Is faith compatible with science? Why is there evil and suffering? Are my actions free or determined? How should we view religious diversity? Does ethical behaviour require God? This course offers erudite, compelling and fresh answers to these questions and more in an accessible language that respond to the challenges presented by the age of skepticism and science. In doing so, the instructor provides a balanced approach representing not only theistic and atheistic perspectives, but also a much needed Islamic point of view that has largely been ignored or misunderstood. → Register

Successful weekend with Shaikh Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick
The IDM together with the Karibbean Islamic Network hosted Shaykh Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick, during the weekend of August 7-10 in Trinidad and Tobago, for Deeper Roots: The Muslim Contribution to Emancipation.
The main events for Dr. Quick were:
• Khutbah at Nur e Islam masjid
• Launch of his revised book - Deeper Roots: Muslims in the Americas and the Caribbean before Columbus to the Present
• Delivering the main address on the Muslim Contribution to Emancipation at Woodford Square
• Lecture on the 'Muslim Contribution to the Modern World' at Bamboo Masjid
• TV and radio appearances
Alhamduillah, the weekend was a success. The response to the lectures and to Dr. Quick's book was remarkable. One highlight was a two hour radio interview hosted by the Black Caucus Movement which generated many calls and provided good da'wah opportunities. IDM's office received many calls after that programme from persons requesting copies of Dr. Quick's book. Another highlight was the unveiling of a plaque at Bath Street in Belmont, in commemoration of Jonas (Yunus) Muhammad Bath 校 free slave who set up a Muslim community in that area.
The launch of Dr. Quick's book took place at the National Library in Port of Spain, where enthusiastic guests got a free copy signed by the author. → Photo gallery
