Love from the Islamic Tradition
On a daily basis, we interact with fellow human beings beginning with our family members and friends, with the environment, with creatures and animals and with whatever we define as the spiritual around us. These interactions shape our daily lives and affect our relationships. During this talk, Dr. Abrar Qureshi will explore the do’s and don’ts of such interpersonal interactions from the perspective of the Islamic tradition and the Quran, and discuss a framework that embodies love, caring, nurturing, safety and pluralism.
