TEHRAN (IQNA) – Illinois Tech’s Muslim Students Association is collaborating with the Bayyinah Institute to bring speaker and author Sharif Randhawa to the university on Friday, November 4 and Saturday, November 5.


Randhawa is the co-author of the book ‘Divine Speech: Exploring the Quran as Literature’, along with scholar Ustadh Nouman Ali Khan.

The book allows Muslims and non-Muslims to read, study, and appreciate the scripture and its message on equal footing, using the same tools of analysis, without demanding any prior faith commitment.

A brief lecture will take place on November 4. The main session will take place on November 5 from noon–2 p.m. in the John T. Rettaliata Engineering Center, Room 104.

"Abrahamic Stories,” detailing correlations between bibliographic stories and the Quran, will be the topic of discussion from 4:30–6 p.m.
