Confronting Islamophobia with Sheikh Nuh Keller: A Free Live Event by SunniPath Academy

Confronting Islamophobia with Sheikh Nuh Keller
Sunday, April 17 @ 5pm GMT

When being “randomly” selected for security checks at airports becomes the default; when hearing reports of the Holy Quran being burned become old news; and when mobs chanting vile mantras become constant outside local mosques, it’s about time to say enough is enough. Muslims in the west are increasingly facing systematic contempt of our Islamic identity, religion, and our way of life.

Thirteen US states have thus far introduced bills to ban the Sharia in state courts. This initiative is fatuous and absurd, but points up at the crux of the problem: an increasing and overt hate of Muslims and Islam.

Even more blatant are ongoing congressional hearings on the alleged radicalization of American Muslims. These shed a plain light on the escalating Islamophobic sentiment in the West.

So how do we, as Muslims, respond to this test from Allah Most High? We must depart from taking apologetic stances regarding our sacred religion. In a world focused on the self, Muslims center their lives around God and that is exactly what distinguishes us from other nations and peoples.

We fear God, not men. Our pride and dignity lie in our identity as Muslims who, among other things, not only pray, fast, and give charity, but also in our history, our holy traditions and our beautiful way of life. We need to restore our self-respect by standing up for ourselves despite the Islamophobic storm that has devastated the West. People may choose to veil themselves from the grace of Islam, but not at the expense of scorning Muslims.

It’s time to give people real answers about your religion, not merely what they want to hear. Join our live event this Sunday, April 17, to hear Sheikh Nuh Keller, a prominent scholar of Islamic spirituality and law, speak about Islamophobia, and general guidelines for your private and public life to address and challenge it.

About Our Teachers

Sheikh Nuh Keller

Sheikh Nuh Keller is an American-Muslim master of Islamic spirituality, specialist in Islamic Law, and translator. Born in 1954 in the northwestern United States, he was educated in philosophy and Arabic at the University of Chicago and UCLA. He became Muslim in 1977 at al-Azhar in Cairo, and later studied the traditional Islamic Sciences of spirituality, hadith, Shafi’i and Hanafi jurisprudence, legal methodology (usul al-fiqh), and tenets of faith (‘aqidah) in Syria and Jordan, where he has lived since 1980.

His English translation of ‘Umdat al-Salik, or The Reliance of the Traveler [Sunna Books, 1991] is the first Islamic legal work in a European language to receive the certification of al-Azhar, the Muslim world's oldest institution of higher learning. He also possesses ijazas or “certificates of authorization” in Islamic jurisprudence and spirituality from sheikhs in Syria and Jordan.

Shaykh Nuh’s other translations and works include: Al-Maqasid: Imam Nawawi’s Manual of Islam; The Sunni Path: A Handbook of Islamic Belief; and the Tariqa Notes, a handbook for those on the Shadhili path of tasawwuf. He is currently translating Imam Nawawi’s Kitab al-Adhkar, or The Book of Remembrance of Allah, a compendium of some 1227 hadiths on prayers and dhikrs of the prophetic sunna. He currently resides with his wife in Amman, Jordan.
