Prophet Muhammad is one of the most vilified and misunderstood people in the history of the world. In this talk, “Prophet Muhammad’s Love of Humanity: Lessons for Our Time,” Dr. Craig Considine of Rice University will counter stereotypes and dispel misinformation about Muhammad in an accessible, appealing, and scholarly manner. Dr. Considine will present historical sources and stories about Muhammad’s relations with Jews, Christians, and people of various walks of life, and inspire new understandings of the life and legacy of the Prophet of Islam. Considine will stress Muhammad’s love of humanity through the prism of several sociological concepts including anti-racism, religious pluralism, social justice, and civic nation building.
You can reserve your ticket online or send your $10 check payable to the Dialogue Institute Dallas at 1416 E. Collins Blvd. Richardson, TX 75081.
