Higher Education For A Higher Purpose

A Zaytuna College Benefit Luncheon with Zaid Shakir, Hamza Yusuf & Khalid Latif

For Western Muslims, the world has become an increasingly confusing place. Around us, we see savage atrocities—torture, religious persecution, sectarian violence, the killing of civilians—committed in the name of our religion or in the name of nations we claim as home.

At Zaytuna College, we believe the crisis of today’s time is a crisis of knowledge. This is why we are here. We want to do our part to restore the centrality of knowledge to our religion.

Join us for a special afternoon in Manhattan—your window into Zaytuna’s ambitious liberal arts vision.

You’ll hear from our faculty, students, and leadership about how an unprecedented education that aims to provide a foundation in the intellectual heritage of the Islamic and Western civilizations can begin to address today’s crisis of knowledge.
