Friday April 14th – Night 1: Impact of Religiosity in Reducing Communal Deviancy
According to several verses of the Quran, religiosity protects a community from deviancy. Yet, we see religious communities often suffering from lack of ethics and committing immoral acts and sins. In this session we will analyze some Quranic verses to determine the nature of religiosity, its different levels and at what level one begins to see a reduction in deviancy.
We will also briefly engage in a discussion on 3 key elements of religiosity (belief, apparent action, and confession) and barriers that exist in the contemporary age from reaching greater levels of religiosity.
Saturday April 15th – Night 2: Evaluating & Prioritizing the Value of Righteous Deeds
Visiting the sick, helping someone in need, attending the mosque, reciting the Quran etc. are all religious, moral and good deeds. However, in the practical world, we regularly face the challenge of prioritizing and deciding between one good deed over another – a phenomenon known as al-tazahum (mutual competition). We will explore what variables one needs to be attentive towards in ones particular context so to better judge the value of that deed and prioritize it accordingly.
