What’s Left That’s Right?

Ethical Clarity in a Polarized World A Benefit Event for Zaytuna College in Chicago

Some of today’s most difficult and pressing questions are ethical, but as Muslims we’re often ill-equipped to answer them. While our tradition contains many profound ethical precepts, in order to address new moral problems, or even older ones in new forms, developing a methodology of ethical reasoning is urgently necessary. In an era of increasing religious, political, and economic polarization, can we then forge an ethical philosophy that speaks clearly and prophetically to a divided world?

Join Zaytuna College for a special benefit event, where we will also invite you to continue supporting the growth of America’s first Muslim liberal arts college.
