The Presbyterian Church in Morristown‘s Sunday Morning Seminar continues its series on Understanding Those Who Are Different from Ourselves with three sessions on Understanding Islam led by Dr. Ali Chaudry starting Sunday, March 19, 2017.
Many political leaders have criticized the Islamic faith and practices forcefully, yet many of us have limited knowledge of this widespread religion.
Dr. Chaudry will present an overview of Islam’s basic principles including the Quran, and discuss the wide diversity of Muslim experiences in the U.S. and around the world. He will also discuss several initiatives bringing people of Muslim and Christian faiths together to serve the greater good.
Dr. Ali Chaudry is co-founder and president of the Islamic Society of Basking Ridge and co-founder of the NJ Interfaith Coalition —over 120 Muslim and non-Muslim organizations working to bridge understanding among all communities.
He holds a Ph.D. in Economics from Tufts University and had a 30 year career at AT&T. At Rutgers, he teaches Understanding Islam, and The Qu’ran for Non-Muslims. He also teaches about Islam at the NJ Police Academy. Dr. Chaudry served on the Board of Ed and as mayor of Bernards Township, and is active in community service and interfaith organizations.
