What do you mean when you say, “I believe in God”? – Katrin Jomaa


In the modern world, many people, no matter what their faith, see religion as a passive dogma— a set of beliefs one embraces but does not put into practice in the secular world. But for traditional Islam, passive dogma is no religion at all. Professor Jomaa will tell us about the traditional Muslim view of the place of religion in life through stories about the Prophet Abraham, whose religion is described in the Quran as the “best religion.”

Katrin Jomaa, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of Islam and Middle Eastern Politics in the departments of political science and philosophy at URI.
