Islam 101
Wednesday, October 4th
7:00pm - 8:30pm

Islam is one of the major world religions, yet many in the United States know little about it.  

Image result for Mona Ives
The religion, like others, espouses beliefs that are sometimes misrepresented.  Mona Ives, an American-born Muslim woman, hopes to shed light on the religion, de-mystifying it and clarifying misconceptions, when she presents “Islam 101” here at the Library on October 4th.

Ms. Ives studied International Relations at Boston University and then Arabic and Islamic Theology and Comparative Religion at the International Islamic University in Islamabad.  She is an Instructor at the Worcester Institute for Senior Education and conducts free seminars on Islam.  Her charity work includes a special focus on assisting refugees re-settling in America.

Ms. Ives will concentrate on the basic tenets of Islam:
The 6 articles of faith, the 5 pillars of practice, and moral values.
