Al-Hikmah: Death Becomes Us

  • The Green Room #410, 10310-102 Avenue Edmonton (map)

Exploring death and grieving within an Islamic context

Death and dying is one of the most challenging topics of our generation. In this Al-Hikmah we will be exploring perspectives of death and dying in Islam, the ways we deal with grief, and how our Islamic worldview and culture shapes our responses. 

Through interactive discussions on topics such as, "how do I provide support to someone who is in their final stages of life?" the aim will be to broaden our understanding of this often neglected reality of our existence.

This Al-Hikmah discussion will be facilitated by Captain Ryan Carter, Chaplain with the Canadian Armed Forces, and Ibrahim J. Long, Clinical Chaplain and Pastoral Counselor.
