While struggling to maintain a balance between our academic and professional lives, often times, we push our desire to discover Islam further downstream. Although we find ourselves in a less than ideal world, facing situations that are far from easy; it is important to remember that today’s problems are not new, nor are their solutions impossible to find.
This interactive seminar will define some of these major challenges, and discuss practical ways to address them as we walk this tightrope of faith. Learn to win the every day battles we face; and more importantly, how to gauge your progress on this path. Don’t miss out on this excellent opportunity to gain some valuable insights in a uniquely comfortable setting. Remember to bring your friends along!

Shuruq, meaning “sunrise”, brings light to the diversity of life, culture, art, music, literature, religion, and politics in the Muslim world. “The Muslim world”- defined as representative and inclusive of peoples from all over the globe, including Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Europe and the Americas. Shuruq celebrates the aforementioned diversity by hosting various events in order to educate the NYU community and examine and deconstruct misrepresentations and stereotypes of Muslims and Islam in today’s society. Furthermore, Shuruq strives to expose its audience to the experiential reality of Muslims through an emphasis on artistic expression, various perspectives, and other facets that are often ignored.
