Program details

May 6th: Calligraphy in Islamic-Iranian Architecture

Calligraphy in Islamic-Iranian Architecture Description: Since Islamic art does not portray animals and figures, calligraphy becomes an essential means of decoration and a highly creative art form. Iranian architects beautifully blended this form of art into their buildings and illustrated a world where everything is sourced from the holy words.

May 7th: Ramadan De-Stressor

Join TMA UTSC for a fun and relaxing de-stressor event to kick-start the summer. We will be having games, quizzes and prizes!

May 8th: Balance Not Bans: Building the Psychosocial Foundations of Hejab

The principle of hijab in Islam has historically been a globally scrutinized issue. Across various sociological levels, including governmental and legal systems; cultural and religious communities; educational systems; and interpersonal and family interactions, the observance of hijab has been a contentious issue that impacts the psychosocial well-being of not only Muslim women but the Muslim ummah as a whole. A primary reason many people experience difficulties in navigating the ideological tenets of hijab is that the concept has typically been framed in a strictly jurisprudential, legal, or otherwise worldly matter. In this talk, I will explore the psychosocial consequences of framing the essence of hijab primarily through a physical/worldly vs. a divine/sacred lens. This will entail building on - and critiquing - a number of psychological theories in service of arriving at a theory of understanding hijab at a fundamentally spiritual and divine level, which in turn can afford a host of tangible psychosocial benefits for its observers.

May 9th: The Speaking Quran

A speaker event about thaqalayn (quran and Ahlulbayt) but will try to have an engaging dimension as well.

May 10th: TQS Closure Session

Closing lecture by Maulana Abidi. Announcing the winners of the Iftar Challenge.
