This is the fourth of a five-session course focused on building understanding about Muslims and Islam. These sessions will include particular discussions focused on the relationships between Muslims and Jews and between Islam and Judaism.

ING CEO Maha Elgenaidi will be speaking on the topic of Muslim Women Beyond the Stereotypes. The role of Muslim women and Islam’s view of women is one of the most widely misunderstood and misrepresented aspects of the religion and its practitioners. This presentation describes Qur’anic and prophetic teachings about the role and responsibilities of Muslim women, including the different roles that women play in Muslim life. It also includes a description of notable Muslim women from the founding of Islam through the present and information about contemporary American Muslim women.
