Much has been studied and documented about the rising tide of Islamophobia in America, but less has been done to study how this "climate of fear" may have detrimental impacts on identity formation and youth development. 

 

Join ISPU for a discussion of issues affecting American Muslim youth:

  • What questions and issues are youth grappling with? 
  • What types and how much support do American Muslim youth need to navigate this "climate of fear"? 
  • Does the mosque provide a space that allows for a diversity of experiences and stations along this path? 
  • Are the leading religious figures in the American Muslim community prepared to answer the questions that weigh on the minds of their younger coreligionists?

The Future of Undocumented Students:  Addressing Equity through Policy and Practice

Thursday, April 24, 2014 | 9:30 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
Registration begins 9:00 a.m. | Lunch begins at 12:15 p.m. | Reception begins at 3:15 p.m.
University Club (3435 Forest Rd.; East Lansing)

Among the many ongoing debates in higher education is the controversy regarding enrolling and funding undocumented students. Not U.S. citizens or legal residents, these students face political, social, financial, and legal barriers with accessing U.S. higher education. These students are talented and motivated youth who have already overcome multiple obstacles that often include poverty, assimilation, and language barriers. This day-long symposium of multiple panels will focus on undocumented students in higher education from various perspectives including policy, advocacy, research, and practice. Presenters will shed light on the wide range of issues raised in this debate.

Throughout the 1930's, an unimaginable evil tore through Europe, as Hitler's Third Reich terrorized its way to domination. During these tumultuous times, a young Muslim woman living in Paris found her calling. Noor Inayat Khan grew up in a home that fostered faith and hope.  Leading with her heart, she overcame her quiet nature and joined Winston Churchill's covert operation to give the Allies a new chance at victory. This is her story.

  

 

"Enemy of the Reich: The Noor Inayat Khan Story is a moving account of a young Muslim woman who sacrificed her life to combat the brutal domination of Nazi Germany.  As a leader in the international movement to reconcile Jews and Muslims, this compelling film is a source or inspiration to me."

 

~Rabbi Marc Schneier

President & Co-Founder of the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding

 

 

"I prayed for Noor and all those who suffered when I visited Dachau.  American Muslims, Christians, Jews, Hindus: we all need to know her story, it can bring us closer together."

 

~Imam Mohammad Magid

President, Islamic Society of North America

Introductions: Tafsir of Al-Fatihah and Al-Baqarah
Every Sunday after Maghrib at the Islamic Center
Weekly Tafsir Course taught by Br. Siraj Sohail   ~ Sundays After Maghrib 
The opening Surah of Al-Qur'an, Surat Al-Fatihah is a sea full of gems to be discovered.

In Surat Al-Baqarah, Allah takes us from the believers, to those who are ungrateful, to those who have the disease of hypocrisy.

Br. Siraj has held Tafsir courses at the Islamic Center before, and he takes learning very seriously. A teacher by profession, Br. Siraj makes sure to make this learning experience engaging and fun.
