Description

Sunni - Shi'a Divide: History & Theology

Dr. Khaled Abou El Fadl (Chair of the Islamic Studies Interdepartmental Program at UCLA)

The divide between Sunni's and Shi'i's continues to plague modern Muslims and has caused a considerable amount of tension and conflict. This lecture will reflect on the reason that this divide came about and will review some of the major differences between Sunni and Shi'a Islam. The lecture will particularly focus on the implications on the Sunni and Shi'a divide for Muslims in America and the ways that it impacts American Muslim identity and politics.
