Event description

Description

Introduction:
Sabeel Center is proud to present its Family Movie & Discussion Night series.

One of the Center's strategic objective is to bring the community together. To that end, we encourage our audiences to join us every 3rd Friday of a month with members of their families for a lively and meaningful discussion across generations. The maximum number of registrants is deliberately kept low to facilitate such an interaction.

Discussion materials will be emailed to registered attendees to enhance their viewing experience at the event and also prepare them for the discussion.


Please see below the event details, the program agenda, and links to other evenings in the series.

Sabeel Center is thankful to UPF (Unity Productions Foundtaion) for making this documentary available to us for the benefit of our community.

Description :
(from the Alchemiya website)

'Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think' explores the world's first major opinion poll, conducted by the Gallup organization. It asked Muslims from Indonesia to South Asia, to the Middle East, as well as minority communities in the US and Europe, what they thought about issues such as Gender Equality, Terrorism, and Democracy. It presented by Islamic scholars and the Gallup members themselves who give context and try to provide explanations for the results.
