Part of the Islamic Awareness Series 2008 @ Stanford THE JIHAD TO REFORM: THE STRUGGLE TO DEFINE OUR FAITH Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl Thursday January 31, 2008, 7pm Cubberly Auditorium Dr. Abou El-Fadl, a professor of law at UCLA, will discuss the current trend in the Muslim world towards an extremely exclusive and disturbingly narrow vision of Islamic theology and law. In discussing the notion and nature of revealed Truth, Abou El Fadl will attempt to show how the Muslim community of faith can understand such revealed Truths in a way that is true to the Islamic texts yet compatible with principles of coexistence, pluralism, and human equality. Dr. Abou El Fadl offers a theological perspective that attempts to transcend narrow views of religious doctrine and reconcile seemingly contradictory principles.
