Understanding Islam

Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


This educational program, presented by the Ahmadiyya Muslim Women’s Organization, Silver Spring Chapter, is designed to answer your questions about Islam and Muhammad, the founder of Islam.

What would Prophet Muhammad say about the situation of women today and #MeToo? Does modern society grant women equal rights to men? 1,500 years ago, Islam gave women more than just equal rights, it established justice for women. Prophet Mohammad, the founder of Islam, “declared in the name of god Almighty that men and women by virtue of their common humanity were equal to one another and in their coexistence just as men have certain rights over women, similarly women have certain rights over men.”

This is a family-friendly event and children are welcome.

Respecting Ahmadi traditions, men and women will be seated separately. Refreshments are provided.

This project was made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. The views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of the Institute of Museum and Library Services. IMLS_Logo
