The Qur’an has much to say about the role, duties and wonders of women, but how often do women ask questions of themselves and their interpretations of the scripture? How many female scholars are exploring women in the Qur’an? And how often do you have the opportunity to listen, learn and question these things, in a safe, women-only space?

Join Asma Barlas, the eminent Islamic scholar, for this wonderful opportunity to learn more about the true role of women in the Islamic life—as well as the Qur’an. The event will be entirely in Urdu, to allow sisters who are not fluent in English to take part in this unique educational opportunity.
