ISlectureF2013FlyerSome say, learning about great personalities lives drives them pessimistic since those people`s highlighted life style is not imitable, whereas as Islam and Sufism Club we strongly state that even though we cannot reach the level of these duenna people in terms of being humble, generous and devout, we should try to be.
In that sense, as mentioned before this semester`s talks will be about Great Sufism Scholars, time, date and location information is posted with this flier. Best Regards....

Annual Ramadan Fast-Breaking (Iftar) Dinner

August 9th, 2013

IMG_0058UALR Islam and Sufism’s annual fast-breaking dinner (Iftar) was held on August 7th at Raindrop Turkish House. A Large group participants, including friends at UALR, joined the event to share the iftar with Muslims. The activity started with a short video of Qur’an recitation. Following the video, one of the volunteers of the student club gave a presentation on the meaning and practical aspects of Ramadan. Participants’ questions about fasting and Ramadan were answered in the presentation: Social aspects of Ramadan, Who must fast, What is Eid? For many in the audience it was interesting to learn Ramadan/Eid activities that take place throughout Turkey.

This was followed by a delicious homemade Turkish food that was shared and enjoyed by all participants. After the dinner, a short video about “Turkish Tea Culture” was presented. The video is about Katharine Branning’s book, an American storyteller and writer, “Yes, I Would Love another Glass of Tea”.

It was a great pleasure for us to have the dinner with a diverse group of friends in this evening. The friendly environment that was warm and welcoming made it very comfortable for everyone to interact. Special thanks to Raindrop for being our sponsor for this wonderful event.
