This class will focus on the second pillar of Islam: prayer (salah).
Join Imam Khalid Latif every Wednesday as he dives deep into salah, Islam’s most important act of worship. He will cover all of its inner and outer aspects so that we can learn to pray properly externally, but with the necessary inner presence and humility.
Whether you are a new Muslim, a born Muslim, or just curious about Islam, this course is a great opportunity to learn, ask questions, and connect with your fellow truth-seekers in a supportive, non-judgmental environment.
Imam Khalid Latif is a University Chaplain for New York University, and Executive Director of the Islamic Center at NYU (ICNYU). Under his leadership, ICNYU became the first ever established Muslim student center at an institution of higher education in the United States. Imam Latif’s exceptional dedication and ability to cross interfaith and cultural lines on a daily basis brought him recognition throughout New York City, so much so that in 2007, Mayor Michael Bloomberg nominated Imam Latif to become the youngest chaplain in history of the New York City Police Department at the age of 24.
Most recently, Imam Latif was selected as one of 60 New York City leaders to serve on Mayor Bill de Blasio’s transition team, helping to recommend and select individuals for key roles in the current NYC administration and was also appointed to a “Task Force to Combat Hate” by NYC Public Advocate Letitia James to deal with the rise in Islamophobic, antisemitic, and anti-Sikh sentiment in NYC.
