WHAT: Earlier this year, Dr. Muhammad Tahir-ul-Qadri issued one of the most comprehensive “fatwas” (religious rulings) condemning terrorism issued by any Islamic authority to date. Dr. Tahir-ul-Qadri’s talk will highlight the fatwa’s applicability, clarify key concepts of jihad, suicide bombings, dar al-harb (abode of war) and dar al-Islam (abode of peace) and why terrorism is in fact a continuality of the kharijites (khawarij) or rebels.

More information on the Fatwa can be found at or
