At times, discussions about Islam fall into segmentation of which group a person belongs to, usually connected to their identity. Man or woman, urban or rural, Malaysian or elsewhere, Sunni or something else. When does a person become liberal or is she at times conservative? To what extent does such thinking help diversify the Muslim community or does it divide us? What were Muslims before us like?
Mak, am I a Liberal or a Conservative? If Jadi Both Macam Rojak Boleh? is a Ladies Only event. It will be at 35 Jalan BU 1/1 Bandar Utama 47800 PJ, Sunday 15 September at 330pm-530pm. It is near Sekolah Kebangsaan Bandar Utama, the housing area on the same side as Centrepoint. Click here for map.

Whether it is in governance or elsewhere, Muslims who lead anywhere carry the identity of Islam. An identity that has been transmitted to them, from those before them, leading all the way to the source – Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). Just as the scholars inherited him in knowledge, Muslims in charge of responsible public roles are trustees of the principles and standards set by the Messenger of Allah (PBUH).’
This event will take place on Wednesday 11 September 2013. The location will be at UTM, Jalan Semarak, KL, admission is free but you have to RSVP by clicking here (http://peacemeal.my/sept2013rsvp) as seats are limited.
