Convert sisters will experience a rejuvenation of faith by learning how to stand on their own two feet. Have you wondered about those oft-repeated terms said by Muslims or religious leaders during Friday sermons or in everyday conversation? Confused and not sure where to turn? We were there too. During this module, sisters in faith are encouraged to seek proper religious knowledge for themselves instead of relying completely on others to explain things to them. These explanations, however sincere, may come through different cultural perspectives or misinterpreted lenses.
This module reviews common Islamic terminology, belief systems, and tools to gain a proper foundation of religious beliefs as mentioned in holy scriptures and teachings of the Prophet (peace and blessings be upon him). Discussion will involve the theological history of Abrahamic faiths and practical aspects of seeking knowledge to declare independence.
