We are pleased to announce a series of lectures by Mr. Abdolali Bazargan at ICCNC, occurring the second Saturday of every other month (February 10, April 14, and June 9, 2018) from 6-8pm.
The central theme of Abdolali Bazargan’s lectures is focused on the ethical dimensions emphasized in the Qur’an and traditions (or hadith) of the Prophet Muhammad and the Twelve Imams. Mr. Bazargan addresses the history and processes of scriptural interpretation that have often given rise to dubious understandings of the text. He argues that the commitment to equality, liberalism, and pluralism resonates with the spirit of early Islam, when an emerging theology was intrinsically wedded to one of liberty.
