Knowledge Triumphant: A Benefit Event in Atlanta

April 9, 2016, 6 p.m.


100 CNN Center, Atlanta, GA 30303

Event Description

This event was originally created by Zaytuna College.

Islam and the Stewardship of Reason

Today we face enormous threats from extremists within Islam and from outside it, as well as from an intellectual culture that often disdains religion. Centuries ago, Imam al-Ghazali realized that for Islam to withstand assaults, faith alone is not enough—reason is also needed to defend the religion. At Zaytuna College, we believe we have a collective responsibility to restore Imam al-Ghazali’s placement of reason at the center of the Islamic tradition—so we can confidently meet the challenges we face today.

Join Zaytuna for an inspirational evening with Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, the College's president, faculty and staff.

You'll learn about the impact that Zaytuna scholars and students are making around the globe -- such as countering extremism within Islam, pushing back against Islamophobia, and leading civic engagement efforts.

Come celebrate what you've built and continue to help Zaytuna maximize its public impact.

This event will not be live streamed.
