Badawi to keynote Islam Week
Thursday, April 8, 2010
Muslim scholar and lecturer Jamal Badawi will keynote Islam Awareness Week April 12-16 at St. Cloud State University.
His presentation, "Is Co-existence Feasible? An Islamic Response," is noon April 15 in the Cascade Room of Atwood Memorial Center (AMC).
During his lectures Badawi speaks from a "people of the book" world view that respects Judaism and Christianity. Listen to two excerpts from a Badawi lecture on Muslim/non-Muslim relations:
Badawi holds master's and doctoral degrees from Indiana University. He is best known, perhaps, for producing a 352-segment television series about Islam that aired on networks around the world.
An Egyptian-born Canadian, Badawi will also participate in an inter-faith panel discussion (PDF) the evening of April 15 at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul.

Islam Awareness Week is sponsored by the Muslim Student Association of SCSU and the Student Government Association. View the event poster (PDF).
