About the Event
Growth is what is inherent in any living organism. It is the basic purpose of life and it is one of the most fundamental aspects of Islam. It is through the growth of the Self that one can elevate consciousness to understand divinity and the purpose of individual Identity.
The growth panel discussion is a conversation around misogyny, women in non- traditional roles, genocide and the use of rape as a weapon of war.
