The Islamic Perspective on Marijuana | Straight Talk for Teens & Parents
February 22 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Let’s talk about Muslims smoking weed and what our faith says about the recreational and medicinal use of cannabis.
7 p.m. to 8 p.m. – Parallel sessions: Youth (13 to 23 boys & girls) privately with Shaykh Rami in the Conference Room & adults (over 23) and parents with Dr. Amer in Prayer Hall
8 p.m. to 9 p.m. – Joint Session with everyone in Prayer Hall after Isha at 8 p.m. with Shaykh Rami and Dr. Syed Amer Rahmatullah. Moderated by Ustadha Dr. Rania Awaad.
7 p.m. to 9 p.m. | Friday, Feb. 22 | Dinner from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at nominal cost
This talk, sponsored by the Khalil Center and the MCC East Bay, will address the anecdotal misperception by youth in our community that smoking weed is allowed (halal) because it is a natural, soothing herbal plant.
All teens in the Navigators and Rahmah Friday evening halaqas will join this session, including all attendees of Dr. Rania’s womens halaqa and Shaykh Rami’s mens halaqa.
The parent’s talks with Dr. Amer and the joint session moderated by Dr. Rania will be livestreamed and recorded. The private session with Shaykh Rami with the youth (13 to 23) will not be recorded or livestreamed and that session will be closed to adults to allow for a frank and honest discussion.
