The Prophet Muhammad (SAW) said, “One who treads a path in search of knowledge has his path to Paradise made easy by God…” [Riyadh us-Saleheen, 245]. This is the Enlightened Path, the path that leads to our ultimate goal of attaining Jannah, the path that draws us nearer to Allah (SWT) with greater knowledge of Him, His book, and His teachings. This program at the ICP will help pave this way, inshaAllah by offering in-depth teachings of Islamic sciences as no other program in Pittsburgh or the surrounding areas has.

Connectedness in the Islamic World (661-1300 CE)

Thursday, February 20, 2014 - 4:00pm
4130 Posvar Hall

Medieval Arabic sources are replete with stories about Muslims traveling far and wide. The abundance of such examples tempts one to believe that these traveling individuals created and maintained the pan-Islamic cultural commonwealth. Yet the Islamic written legacy is so vast that drawing decisive conclusions that traveling was indeed as widespread as our sources suggest is hardly possible.
