Open to anyone interested in learning about authentic Islam and Sufism from the experience of a white American family man.
I tried to start a group like this before but there was not much interest in it. Recently, Meetup suggested I give it another try and so I have.
Despite what many Americans believe, Islam is a peaceful religion that places faith at the forefront of life.
Sufism is the inner aspect of Islam where we explore our deep spirituality and personal connection to the Divine through music, art and Quran interpretation.
Just as with any faith, there are plenty of people who profess Islam as their reason to do harm, but nothing of the sort is actually part of the Quran. The vast majority of Muslims uphold a strict discipline of love and tolerance.
Did you know?
Islam is descended from Judaism and Christianity.
Islamic women are not religiously required to cover their faces.
Jihad is Not a call to war.
With it's beauty and simplicity, Sufism rescued me from a lifetime of atheism and chronic cynicism.
