About The Event

Recent global sociopolitical events have raised questions about the basic values that we do - or don’t - share as human beings. 

Many of us wonder about the threshold for the denial of basic human rights that can finally unite us all, only to find those thresholds extended further.

In times like these, it is critical to reflect on our basic psychosocial needs for a sense of connection and unity with other human beings, especially when it comes to striving for justice.

In her presentation talk, Dr. Hosseini will build on Quranic insights to explore the questions:

  • What is the wisdom behind the fact that Allah has placed an inherent desire for mutual values and drive towards fairness within us?
  • How can an awareness of these psychological processes galvanize our preparation for and attunement with Imam Mahdi?
  • And how can we instill these ideas within the next generation?

This will be an in person presentation which will also be broadcast live at: http://live.iman-wa.org
