Dr. Omid Safi will discuss his new book Radical Love: Teachings from the Islamic Mystical Tradition, including selections from the Quran, Hadith, Rabi‘a, ‘Attar, Ahmad Ghazali, Rumi and Hafez. Radical love or eshq in Persian (and ‘ishq in Arabic) is the flame of divine love in the Islamic mystical tradition that is transmitted from heart to heart. Dr. Safi will discuss this living tradition, its roots in early Islam and its flowering among Muslim mystics or Sufis throughout the centuries. He will also draw upon the messages of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Malcolm X and others to explore what radical love means in our contemporary American and global contexts. Come listen to a transformative voice who helps connect the past and the present, East and West, and love and justice.
Dinner will be served at 6:30pm. All are welcome.
