How do we make sense of the genocide in Gaza according to Islamic and historical sources? How can we process, support, and uplift one another in these times of immeasurable suffering?

Join us for a post-Maghrib talk with Dr. Farah El-Sharif, who discusses how Gaza is already changing the world for the better and will put into context the Palestinian struggle according to revelation and broader human history.
