Been a while, but let's restart up our Quran Group on Saturday, Sept 25. We'll start at 10am PST (1pm EST, 6pm BST).
Last time, we discussed the esoteric narrative of Surah Kahf, the "Cave." Let's continue with that covering verses 18:60-82, on the story of Moses and his companion ("Al-Khidr").
The Quran is the central text of Muslim religious tradition and deeply poetic and beautiful. Yet it has been and continues to be used to justify oppression like misogyny and violence. Approaching the text can be difficult, but it's crucial for us to reclaim our heritage. Let's get together to struggle with, connect to, and grow from the Quran while exploring contextualist/progressive approaches to the text. Everyone's welcome - no level of familiarity or knowledge of Arabic required.
