2013 MSA Eid Al-Adha Banquet

Lecture Series

October 25, 2013

The Islamic narrative of the Prophet Ibrahim's (Abraham) life features heavily the theme of community building through sincere service that follows from taking ownership of one's surroundings. Eid Al-Adha is one of the great Islamic holidays, and celebrates Prophet Ibrahim's dedication to this service. The University of Chicago Muslim Student Association Eid Al-Adha Banquet annually brings the campus community together to reflect on these themes while enjoying a hearty meal and listening to inspiring speakers and performers. This year’s banquet will feature talks by Amir Sulaiman, poet, activist, recording artist, and two-time HBO Def Poet, and Rami Nashashibi, Sociologist and Executive Director of the Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN).
