The Journey of Life – Exclusive event series
Madina Institute is hosting a year-long series of candid discussions about our journey through each of life’s phases.
While discussions of this nature normally begin with life, we are beginning the series with a reflection on death – The Beginning of the End, which will help you understand three things:
1. The importance of having your last will & testament in place if you have not already done so
2. Your grave
3. The afterlife

The Call of Bilal: Islam in the African Diaspora: Sunday November 22nd 2015
Madina Institute USA would like you to join us on Sunday, November 22nd from 4:00-5:45pm for a special guest lecture by Dr. Edward E. Curtis IV on his new book, The Call of Bilal: Islam in the African Diaspora. There will be a Q/A session after the talk as well as a book-signing. Books will be available for purchase at the event.
The Call of Bilal is a penetrating account of the rich diversity of Islamic religious practice among Africana Muslims worldwide. Covering North Africa and the Middle East, India and Pakistan, Europe, and the Americas, Curtis reveals a fascinating range of religious activities—from the observance of the five pillars of Islam and the creation of transnational Sufi networks to the veneration of African saints and political struggles for racial justice.”
