Religion has often been used to separate people and demonize those of another faith tradition. We believe, however, that a deep understanding of both Christianity and Islam will lead to the rejection of violence and extremism and affirmation of peace and coexistence. This webinar will explore these paths that Muslims and Christians can walk together in friendship to build the peaceful world that God had intended.

Widely known for his extensive poetry in both Urdu and Persian, Iqbal attempted to reimagine an assertive yet authentic Islam, deftly navigating the poles of Western modernism and Islamic traditionalism. Join us in our first lecture from the Pakistan Studies Initiative as we situate Allama Iqbal's life and thought in Pakistan, the Muslim world and the modern world.
