At 6pm on Wednesday 26 May 2010, Oxford’s world famous Sheldonian Theatre and Divinity School will open its doors to hear two of the world’s foremost Muslim intellectuals write a new and unprecedented chapter in the ever polemical topic of reform in Islam.
Oxford University Islamic Society is honoured to host Sheikh Hamza Yusuf Hanson (Zaytuna Institute, USA) and Professor Tariq Ramadan (Oxford University, UK) to participate at this ground-breaking conference, entitled: Rethinking Islamic Reform
The conference seeks to address the phenomena of how, in the post 9/11 world, it has grown to be an axiomatic truth that Islam needs to reform. Whether it is Western policy-makers seeking to protect themselves from Muslim extremists, humanitarian activists fighting to liberate silenced Muslims, or Muslims themselves responding to new paradigms faced in the 21st century, all are agreed that something within Islam needs to change. The question though, is what, and perhaps more pertinently, how?
Our distinguished guest speakers are well placed to answer.
Invitations for this event will extend to ministers, policy advisors, think tanks, journalists, theologians, scholars and other public figures with an interest in the field of Islamic Reform.
