Where Islam Meets America
Introducing Zaytuna College
Islam has never become rooted in a particular land until that land began producing its own religious scholars. During its twelve-year history in the San Francisco Bay Area, Zaytuna Institute has helped a generation of American Muslims appreciate the enduring legacy of Islamic scholarship. Now, Zaytuna has arrived at a new chapter in its history—and, God willing, in the history of Islam in America.
Please join Imam Zaid Shakir and Shaykh Hamza Yusuf during this special evening as they introduce Zaytuna College, discuss the need for establishing an accredited institution of higher learning, describe the details of the Bachelor’s degree programs the College will offer, and introduce the Bay Area Muslims who will help make it a reality.
Finally, they will invite you to support Zaytuna College, where future generations of Muslims can begin to shape the land in which they live.
Zaytuna is having a fundraiser banquet in California for this project they have initiated on Saturday Jan. 10, 2009. I highly recommend to go to this event if you can, if not then support it by sharing it with your family and friends who can attend and help support Zaytuna.
