About this event

Do you have questions about Shī'ī Islam? Bring your questions to this open forum where Dr. Faiyez Jaffer of NYU will present the basics of Shī'ī beliefs and practices and will answer your questions.

Dr. Shaykh Faiyaz Jaffer is the Research Scholar for the Islamic Center at New York University and an Associate Chaplain for the Center of Global & Spiritual Life at NYU. He holds a doctorate in education from New York University, with a focus on the identity development of Shia youth in the United States. Pursuing the classical course of Islamic education, he studied in the Seminary of Karbala, Iraq, one of the most prominent centers for Islamic learning.

As a faith leader and social activist, Shaykh Jaffer has lectured at various universities, seminars, and workshops across the United States, Canada, Europe, East Africa, and the Middle East. As a highly sought-after lecturer and religious leader, he regularly leads prayer services and delivers sermons across North America. Due to the political and social climate, he has been making strides in the greater New York area by taking part in several interfaith seminars and discussions with the goal of increasing dialogue with faith leaders.

Light refreshments will be served.
