Islamic Center of Southern California (ICSC) is starting cutting-edge adult educational program to develop a balanced American Muslim community that is empowered with authentic, solid, and relevant knowledge and a modern understanding of Islam.
This program is designed to nurture different dimensions of human development: intellectual, social, spiritual and personal development. Three eight-week-long courses will address the three human development areas and the fourth one will focus on the application of Islamic knowledge. These four course modules will be presented over a one-year period and will continue to build on the knowledge from the previous year. The curriculum is built on the following five principles: it is based on authentic Islamic sources; is relevant to the time and place we live in; addresses the needs of a diverse community; covers different human development areas; and focuses on application of learned knowledge.
There are four modules for this year, which will be offered from October to May.The classes are offered Sundays from 9:00 am to 11 am at the ICSC. Each five to six-week course is $100. Child-care is offered as a complimentary service by the ICSC.
The first course starts Sunday, October 24th. Please visit WWW.ACADEMYOFISLAMICTHOUGHT.ORG for more information and to register. Spaces are limited so please hurry. May Allah (swt) help us to live our lives according to His guidance.
