Stargazing, awesome experiments, and a baloney detection kit… a brand new science book for young Muslims is sure to inspire imaginations.
Professor Nidhal Guessoum is one of the major voices speaking up for the advance of science in Muslim countries, and was recently recognised by Global Influence as an Arab Thought Leader and ‘a prime scholar on the relations between Islam and modern science.’
His new book The Young Muslim's Guide to Modern Science, launched at this session, introduces the basics of modern science, combats myths and misunderstandings, and emphasises that Islam, at its core, embraces the very same inquisitive spirit that underlies scientific thinking.
For curious minds of all ages.
Nidhal will be in conversation with Rehan Khan.
