🚨✨UIAW TOPIC RELEASE #2 ✨🚨
Join us on March 9th with Sheikh Mohamed Yaffa!
We are all collateral damage of unchecked Islamophobia in action. This societal ill does not only impact the Muslim community. Rather, Islamophobic rhetoric and actions are responsible for widespread systemic harm to the stability and wellness of individuals, families, and entire communities. When understood in its true form, Islam offers viable solutions to issues rampant within today's society. Unfortunately, Islamophobia itself prevents the elevation of Muslim voices and Islamic ideas. Join us for a riveting lecture that will offer a truly Islamic response to the rise and proliferation of this phenomenon.

The Greatest of All Time
Most of us often attach ourselves to a public figure or an icon as a role model. But the best example who set foot on earth is our Beloved Prophet Muhammed (Peace and Blessings Upon Him), the one and the only person whose life has been attracting millions and millions of people over the last 14 centuries. On 4th day of UIAW, we will be blessed to discuss His personality, character, selflessness, bravery, and compassion. We invite everyone to tune in with us.
🚨✨UIAW TOPIC RELEASE #4 ✨🚨
Join us on March 11th with Sheikh Abdurrahmann Murad!
Which public figure has over 1.8 billion followers and counting, and yet has no social media presence? He is recognized as the most influential person in all of history and was known by all those around him, even his enemies, as the Truthful and Trustworthy. Join us as we bring to life the personality, character, selflessness, bravery, and compassion that dramatically influenced the social, political and economic state of the world.

You don't Know the Real Malcolm X ...yet!
🚨✨UIAW TOPIC RELEASE #5 ✨🚨
Join us on March 12th with Sheikh Dawud Walid!
Malcolm X is oft-quoted in discussions of injustice, inequality, and oppression. But what made Malcolm X the giant that he was? Western societies have stripped Malcolm X of his ‘inconvenient’ identity as an unapologetic Muslim who stood boldly in his identity as a Black Muslim man. This colonial interpretation of Malcolm X is an intentional smokescreen to hide the true purpose and mission that drove the man recognized today as an iconic symbol of justice and equity.
