At the Rotary Club of Attadale meeting last Monday evening, 14August, the Guest Speaker was Dr Ameer Ali whose presentation was named "The Long Road to Islamic Radicalisation".
Dr Ali gave a historical journey from the origins of Islam to where we are today. From his presentation Dr Ali demonstrated his broad historical knowledge of Islam throughout the ages. He also explained that originally there were several Korans written many years after the Prophet's death. It was some years later that a leading Imam decided that just the one Koran was required and the others were destroyed. Dr Ali also said most Muslims were peace loving. This was one of those presentations that asked questions, and left the audience with much to ponder over.
It was a challenging presentation but rewarding to those in attendance.
