Maydan ED Haroon Moghul will be giving the Friday sermon (khutbah) at Princeton University, for its first Religion Week, this Friday, April 23rd at 1:15p.m.

At 6:00pm that day, Haroon will be delivering a talk on how understandings of Islam can empower or alienate Muslims.  The talk, titled: “Has God Abandoned the Muslim World? An Historical Perspective,” will be at Princeton’s Campus Club, the corner of Washington Road and Prospect Avenue.


Maydan ED Haroon Moghul presented an introduction to Maydan’s media workshops on April 16th, 2010 at Cornell University.  His most recent essay for Religion Dispatches reviews a Financial Times’  journalist’s account of America and the Middle East.

The Maydan Institute congratulates Senior Instructor, Imam Khalid Latif, runner up in the FaithTrust Institute’s 2009 National Sermon Contest.  This contest asked for submissions pertaining to child abuse, rape and domestic violence and Khalid’s two submissions, Real Men Don’t Hit Women (2-part video) and Upholding Female Dignity (audio).

You can view and hear these submissions through the Islamic Center at NYU.

Imam Latif’s ongoing service to people of faith, in New York City and internationally, represents the best of The Maydan Institute.  Our ambition is to empower your communities with the skills to translate such reach and expertise into your context, so that your community can reach its fullest potential.
