Todayís dominance of Western civilisation is well-acknowledged. The ascendancy of Europe out of the Dark Ages was underpinned by the philosophical, social and theological foundations which shaped Western thought.
Going into the future, it is only natural that the West would like to maintain this dominance of wealth, power and most importantly thought.
Muslims living in the West can be better equipped to deal with their various challenges of identity as the West tries to condition them through assimilation, integration and multiculturalism.
What is Muslim responsibility in shaping a better future given these modern day realities?
This course will attempt to inspire participants to gain insights from history in order to draw lessons from Islamic heritage in dealing with contemporary challenges especially under minority settings.
