A time where attaining knowledge has been made far more accessible than ever before. However, despite this, misinformation has become quite the norm. Especially when it comes to the religion of Islam. The very tools which are used to gain knowledge are manipulated to spread fear and alternative facts. Terms like Islamism and Jihadism derived from Arabic words are used far too loosely to describe extremism and terrorism. So what does Islam really say about the concept of Jihad?Does the religion which is followed by 1.7 billion people of the world, nearly a quarter of the world's population, really teach war and terrorism to its followers? Join us as we Question Islam, putting Islam under the spotlight, and delve in to the scriptural and historical origin of the word Jihad and its implications on modern society.

This training will be delivered by Imam Mohammad Hadi, Muslims Down Under.  Wednesday 21 August 2019 - Building Bridges: African Communities in the ACT Time: 2pm - 4pm Through this training, we hope to provide an opportunity for participating service providers to understand the cultural nuances of various African communities in Canberra.
