Letters to a Young Muslim

Wednesday 8 March, 7.30pm-8.30pm

Al Ras 3, InterContinental

“I want my sons’ generation of Muslims to realize that they have the right to think and decide what is right and what is wrong.” – Omar Saif Ghobash

HE Omar Saif Ghobash is the UAE’s Ambassador to Russia, the sponsor of the Saif Ghobash-Banipal Prize for Arabic Literary translation, a co-founder of the International Prize for Arabic Fiction and one of the UAE’s most respected speakers on political matters.

He is also a father concerned for his sons’ futures. His book Letters to a Young Muslim is addressed to them but contains advice for all Muslims, as well as anyone who wants to learn more about Islam.

As a manifesto for moderate Islam and against extremism, Letters to a Young Muslim is essential reading and in this session, Ambassador Ghobash will discuss the issues faced by modern Muslims.

Ambassador Ghobash will be in conversation with Sultan Al Qassemi.
