    Zaytuna at USC: The Content of Character

    March 26th 9AM-5PM @ THH201

    Day 1 of Islam Awareness Week: The Content of Character

     

    Can we change by listening? Can we be so touched and inspired by words that we are moved to renew and remake ourselves as better, nobler, and more merciful human beings? The impact that good words have had on humanity throughout history resoundingly declares we can.

    These wise sayings of the Prophet Muhammad ﷺ are designed to do just that — to guide us to the very best in ourselves. Compiled by the renowned East African scholar, Al-Amīn 'Alī Mazrū'ī, this collection brings together sayings that encourage good character. By listening closely, we may hear something that speaks to us, speaks to our conscience and our heart, and moves us to become better human beings.

    Join Dr. Abdullah Ali and Ustadh Usama Canon as they bring the words of our Prophet ﷺ to life.

     

    Registration is required. You can buy tickets at: http://info.zaytuna.edu/usc
    Tickets will come with a copy of the book “The Content of Character” as well. We hope to see you all with us inshAllah!
