The Circle's discussions these past weeks (July 16, 23, and 30) have focused on the intertwined mysteries of the nature of God and the true nature of the human being. The August 6 sessions will, in sha' allah, explore the implications of Qur'anic passages situating the human being within a social context (community). Please note that the Circle will, in sha' allah, continue throughout the month of Ramadan.
Suggested reading to enrich your reflections in these areas include a wonderful little book entitled, "Major Themes of the Qur'an" by the late Fazlur Rahman, specifically chapters 1-3.
As always, we will begin at noon in the upper teaching space of the Noor Cultural Centre and will close the circle shortly after 1:00 p.m., in time for people to transition downstairs to the prayer area for the jum'ah prayer service if they wish. As always, people of all ages and faiths are welcome.
