HUMANIST ASSOCIATION OF TORONTO (HAT)MONTHLY MEETING
Date: Saturday, October 16 Time: 1:30 – 3pm
Location: OISE, 252 Bloor Street West, 3-311
Topic: Living the Faith in Contemporary Society
Speaker: Afzal Mirza
Mr. Afzal Mirza is a missionary of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, whose premise is 'love for all, hatred for none.' He has many years of service in Canada and the USA. In the recent past, he was the Vice Principal of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Institute of Islamic Studies in Mississauga. Currently, he is the missionary responsible for Peel region. Mr. Mirza will speak on living the faith in contemporary society: how does an individual Muslim observe their faith in a secular society with Judeo-Christian roots? How does one do this especially when one’s experience as a peaceful, liberal-minded Muslim is at odds with what is portrayed in the media? And how does one interact with others in this society?
Free admission. There will be an opportunity for open discussion and questions.
