Please join the Islamic Center at NYU on Thursday, October 12th for the kickoff of this year’s Sacred Door Lecture Series: “Truth, Justice, and the Spiritual Way: Exploring Muslim Super-heroism through Imam Ali (as)” with our guest speaker Dr. Hussein Rashid.
In the age of fictional superheroes, this talk will look to an original Muslim superhero, Imam Ali (as). Through an exploration of his actions and discussion of his teachings, we will learn how belief and actions are complementary and necessary aspects of what it means to be Muslim. By realizing this connection to its fullest, Imam Ali defines a Muslim superhero.
