Featuring Imam Zaid Shakir, President Hamza Yusuf, President Thomas Hibbs, and Imam Dawood Yasin
Also featuring a special message from His Excellency, Prime Minister Imran Khan of Pakistan, for the American Muslims
Manning the lighthouse in turbulent times is a metaphor for following—in the humblest way—the prophetic imperative to illuminate the darkness of the world with knowledge.
With the help of current students, graduates, faculty, and some very special guests, Imam Zaid Shakir and President Hamza Yusuf will present Zaytuna College’s accomplishments—among them a critical new book on Islamic theology by faculty member Shaykh Faraz Khan—and chart a vision for the future of American Muslim scholarship. The event will feature a keynote lecture by Dr. Hibbs on the importance of liberal arts colleges with an emphasis on Zaytuna College’s role in American educational diversity. His talk will be followed by a conversation between the two presidents on the crisis of nihilism in current American culture and how liberal education addresses that problem.
