Sheikh Nuh Keller in Lahore again

Got this in my mail today:

…Sheikh Nuh Keller is visiting
Pakistan again this February, 2007. (Dates 23 – 25 – Fri – Sun)

More details at www.sweettreebooks.com/events.html
The invite is downloadable, and is not a pass, only something
that will help you follow the schedule.

I did have the pleasure of attending his lecture in March of 2006, when he came to Lahore , which I very briefly covered in this post on this blog.

Unfortunately, it seems, I do not have the right questions to ask any Islamic scholar of any type, so if any of you do have a question, do attend that seminar to ask, or ask in the comments section so that I can ask him on your behalf.

    “Unfortunately, it seems, I do not have the right questions to ask any Islamic scholar of any type”

    How come? Fact is all the issues that you see around you, you can ask his perspective on it. Hudood, rights of women, alternate to interest based economy, decline of Muslim umma..its reasons and solution….and so on.

    Is he Zakir Nayak type person? What do you think “who” should attend this lecture?

    Question is “how can I become a “good muslim” in this modern age” , is there anything like bad or worse muslim , or good muslim.?

    Sheikh Nuh Keller is an American convert to Islam who has been settled in Jordan for the last many years now. He is a well-known proponent of the Tasawwaf (Sufi) stream of thought. So those interested in knowing more about it, would be most eager to attend.

    Just wanted to add, that the man belongs to Shadhili school of Sufism.

    On a remote topic, in case if you don’t know Shadhili, it was founded by Abu-l-Hassan ash-Shadhili who studied at Al Karueein university at Fez (Morrocco), which is the oldest operating educational institute in the world (Al Azhar is the second).

    What is so special about Shadhili sufism ?

    Why is it needed ?

    Why create more sects ?

    MISBA:
    Attend the lecture if you can. There is nothing “special” about the Shahdilli Tariq. It’s “needed” for the same reason that Madhabs are and finally, it’s not a “sect”.
