ISLAM 101 1:00 to 5:00 with Akim and Emily Augustine-Tairu $25.

Akim, a Muslim from Ghana shares his religion. Islam is a religion that has been prevalent on this earth since the early 7th century, and is the second largest religion making up 23% of the world population. We are going to take an in-depth look at the major aspects of the religion, its history, go over commonly asked questions as well as misunderstandings, and while doing so will experience some things first hand.

The workshop will be presented by Akim and Emily Augustine-Tairu. Akim is from Ghana and has been a Muslim his entire life, he had Islamic studies as a child, frequently lead prayers at mosques and in the community, and has lived as a devout Muslim since he was old enough to pray. Emily participated in Islam studies while studying abroad in Ghana, but is mainly serving as the fact presenter while Akim is sharing his experiences. We are looking forward to seeing you there as we discover the world of Islam.
