Introduction to Islam class by Dr. Awadh A. Binhazim

Purity, beauty, religious.. are some of the words described as images of hijabbed women being displayed. Opposes to that, Hijab on women also seen as oppression, abused and simply unfair! What about Islam? One expression when heard Islam? Peace, religion, faith, and yes definitely, terrorism!

By the way, I didn't made up these expressions fyi..they came from the mouth of real people, American people..

I attended a class last weekend, Introduction to Islam class, here in Vandy. Lecture was delivered by Dr. Awadh A. Binhazim, the president of Olive Tree Education, an Islamic outreach & education group. The first class was a blast as one puts it. Yes, the topic may sounded like it was meant for non-muslims or people who wanted to know Islam and yet, it did attract non-muslims even though not much. Ironically, as a Muslim myself, there's still too much that I didn't even know or bother about Islam and any related matter before, I just realized so that moment. I hope the same thought wanders for other fellow Muslims at that class too..And oh yeah btw, the expressions I mentioned above were appointed by the students in that class of the day. real people with their real thoughts..
